Constellium is dedicated to delivering advanced aluminium solutions to all leading aircraft manufacturers across the world. We work to ensure that today’s aircraft are the best they can be, and tomorrow’s better still.
Constellium is a major partner of aircraft manufacturers all over the world, and our new high-performance technologies are behind the development, design, and manufacture of the next generation of aircraft. We work with the industry’s designers, assemblers, and suppliers to make commercial aircraft even more lightweight, efficient, affordable, and reliable.
At Constellium we manufacture and develop materials for all key structural aerospace applications, including fuselage and wing skins, doublers, stiffeners, window and main frames, bulkheads, floor structure, seat tracks, doors, and other internal structures.
A large, advanced product portfolio provides on-the-shelf solutions, while customized solutions can be tailored to individual aircraft types. We are the undisputed leaders in aluminium-lithium technology with our groundbreaking Airware® solution.
We develop a thorough understanding of our customers’ needs in order to help them to achieve their goals. Our customers include some of the world’s leading aircraft designers and manufacturers, such as Airbus, Boeing, ATR, Embraer, Bombardier, Gulfstream, Pilatus to name a few.
Our goal is to provide a solution for any aluminium requirement a customer may have. We are working on our proposal for a “wing of the future” that will deliver a similar performance to composites in terms of weight, time between inspections, fatigue and damage resistance – but at a cost closer to that of current metal wings.
Commercial aircraft programs
We are a longstanding partner of Airbus for the provision of advanced aerospace aluminium products and solutions. We started our partnership in 2010 with the introduction of our Airware® technology on the A350 XWB. We also collaborate with Airbus to improve supply chain and recycling solutions and reduce inventory along the value chain. These initiatives support the ramp-up of key Airbus programs such as the A320neo and the A350 XWB.
Constellium and Bombardier are long-time partners, with a strong history of collaborative research. We supply flat rolled products in a rich mix of alloys, shapes and applications for a number of their aircraft programs such as C Series, CRJ Series, Q Series, Global and Challenger. We are one of the leading suppliers of flat rolled products to Bombardier globally.
