Rolls-Royce is looking for innovative Finnish suppliers to serve the needs of German aviation industry

29.12.2017
The aviation industry is booming in Germany, and the jet engine order book of Rolls-Royce Deutschland extends over the next five years. In 2016, Rolls-Royce Deutchland had a turnover of 2.1 billion euros and investments of 3.2 billion euros.

Rolls-Royce Deutschland is currently revising its supply chain supplier network and has taken the initiative to develop a Finnish-German cooperation strategy in the aviation industry, both in trade and on the political level. Rolls-Royce is seeking Finnish SMEs, which could provide new sources of innovation for the aerospace industry in Germany.

Companies, whose technologies or services are currently applied in a different industry, could also be relevant for the aerospace sector. The potential suppliers should meet following specifications:

• Manufacturing or servicing physical products made of, for example, steel, aluminum, or titanium, with own machines

• Therefore, companies should not be a systems integrator, a service company, or a research organization, but a manufacturer or processor of metal components

• The ideal size of the company is +30 employees

• Certification: ISO 9001 is an absolute minimum (ISO 9100 certification is even better). Similar certification for other industries might also be interesting

• Application area for potential components is civilian (not military)

• Other interesting areas could be nickel-based steel since heat treatment and companies dealing with high-temperature steel are interesting

• Particular fitting methods, such as braising and welding, are interesting

• Component sizes ranging from 1.5 x 1.5cm up to 1.5 x 1.5 meters

• Proven strict quality control procedures

• Management needs to have a true interest in internationalization, cross-technology innovation, and clear ideas about the added value of their offering to Rolls-Royce

 

Finpro will organize an event between potential Finnish suppliers and Rolls-Royce Deutschland in Helsinki in February 2018. If your company meets the given specifications, and would be interested in attending the event, please contact:
