London, 15 February 2019. Expleo, previously Assystem Technologies, has received recognition from Airbus Series Wing Engineering (ESW) for its contribution to the wing engineering of A380, A350 and Single Aisle (A320/A321) platforms. The ESW Airframe Wing Engineering 2018 ‘supplier of the year’ award recognises the partner providing the best quality, agility, proactivity and overall performance to Airbus ESW as nominated by the work package leaders.

On December 6th, 2018, Airbus ESW held its annual supplier conference in Bristol, where it shared its vison and expectations for the future, as well as rewarding a supplier for their contribution to the ESW business with the ‘Supplier of the year’ award.

The 2018 Supplier of the year award was presented by Timothy Pegler (Vice President Airframe Wing Engineering) and was received by Jonathan Taylor (Operations Director Expleo Engineering UK) and Daniel Thorpe (Key Account Manager for Aerospace at Expleo Engineering UK).

Delighted to have received the Airbus Airframe Wing Engineering Supplier of the year award for a second year running, Jonathan Taylor commented “This is a fantastic achievement only made possible by the dedicated teams we have supporting Airbus; I’d like to thank them for making this happen!”

The award is a reflection of Expleo’s capabilities in wing engineering, as well a testament to its relationship with Airbus Airframe Wing Engineering, both in the UK and across Europe. We believe our success is founded upon a sustained commitment to delivering cost effective robust solutions on time, every time, coupled with a spirit of proactively searching for ways to continually improve.

Work with Airbus ESW has included the mechanical design from concept through to certification for Primary and Secondary Structures, Analysis for static and fatigue; Systems Installation and Design; Continuous Improvement Projects; Tooling design, R&D Support and Manufacturing Engineering. In previous years, Expleo have also been awarded the Innovation and Quality awards.
