FACC honours its top suppliers


In recognition if the importance of a strong and efficient supply chain as well as close collaboration with suppliers, FACC has rewarded its top contractors in the FACC Excellent Supplier Awards.

This annual award sees FACC present its best suppliers with awards in recognition of their outstanding performance with regard to product quality and on-time delivery. Factors such as environmental protection and sustainability, customer service, flexibility, cooperation and the willingness to define, accept and implement cost-reducing and process-optimising measures are also taken into account when selecting the winners.

Howmet Fastening Systems won the gold award

As FACC’s best supplier of 2020, Howmet Fastening Systems won the gold award. The industrial group is part of the American aerospace company, Howmet Aerospace, and offers a wide range of fastening solutions for the aerospace industry. The company’s know-how and quality and delivery standards earned the company first place in the awards.


The silver award went to Tata Advanced Systems, a subsidiary of the Indian industrial group, Tata Sons. This international supplier of radar and control systems was recognised for contributing its know-how to ensure greater safety and efficiency in aviation.

The bronze award went to Vaupell China and Vaupell Europe GmbH

The bronze award went to Vaupell China and Vaupell Europe GmbH. Vaupell offers technical component solutions in the field of injection moulding for international aerospace companies, and impressed FACC with its delivery and quality performance.

“Supplying our customers worldwide with our high-tech products and services is a key factor contributing to the success of FACC. A strong supply chain and intensive exchange with our suppliers lay the groundwork for this and thus have priority – more so than ever in the currently challenging environment,” stated Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC AG. “Consistently high quality is therefore not a matter of course, but the result of extraordinary dedication. It is a great pleasure to honour and shine the spotlight on our top suppliers with the FACC Excellent Supplier Awards, and to say ‘thank you’ for their excellent and high-quality cooperation.“

Rudolf Leitner, EVP of procurement at FACC, said of this year’s winners, “In cooperation with our award-winning partners, we are able to offer our end-customers lightweight products of the highest quality and perfection, but also at competitive conditions. We intend to further expand these strong supplier relationships and thus equip ourselves for future challenges”.
