Integral manufacturing engineering service in the A400M final assembly line of Airbus Military


aerospace-ing-fabricacion-grayiconThe contract scope consists on providing in an integral and self-managed way, the engineering service required in every stage carried out during the A400M integration and assembly in the facilities of Airbus Military in Seville.

The development of the work load is structured in order to be carried out in an optimum way (strengthen the quality and cost reduction), employing versatile and multi-functional  operative engineer teams which work in customers or remote facilities (AERTEC Solutions plants), in function of the work requirements.
