VSMPO-AVISMA and Airbus have discussed the possibility of the European group becoming involved in the Russian corporation’s programs to manufacture high-value-added products.
The corporation’s press office told RusBusinessNews that a delegation from Boeing visited VSMPO-AVISA in late April 2013. That group included Airbus’s senior vice president of procurement, Olivier Cauquil; vice president of titanium procurement, Oliver Dreier; plus the directors and managers of the departments for procurement and supply-chain quality.
VSMPO-AVISMA’s general director, Mikhail Voevodin, discussed the possibility of expanding their partnership with the representatives of the European group.
VSMPO-AVISMA and Airbus have been working together for twenty years. Currently more than 60% of the titanium products purchased by Airbus are produced by VSMPO-AVISMA.
