• AMAG signs six-month contract with thyssenkrupp Aerospace
  • Cooperation has existed since the beginning of AMAG's aviation history
  • Thyssenkrupp Aerospace appreciates high recycled content in aluminium

The partnership between AMAG Austria Metall AG and thyssenkrupp Aerospace has existed since the very beginning of AMAG's aviation history. The strong cooperation has now been extended for a further six months in the coming year with the signing of a new supply contract. thyssenkrupp Aerospace has thereby secured the procurement of premium aluminium for the coming year through AMAG.

Patrick Marous, CEO of thyssenkrupp Aerospace, states: "We are very pleased to have been able to conclude this contract as part of our long-term, strategic partnership with AMAG. In the current volatile market environment, it is our common goal to support our customers as a reliable partner. Long-term material supply is therefore an important part of our Materials as a Service strategy."

"Once again, the respectful way in which we have dealt with each other during the
pandemic has proven that long-term perspectives are at the forefront of our partnership
with thyssenkrupp Aerospace. We are all the more pleased to be able to contribute to
the upturn in the aviation industry with the conclusion of this agreement," said Victor
Breguncci, AMAG Austria Metall AG's Chief Sales Officer.

AMAG's aluminium, which is supplied in the form of sheets and plates to thyssenkrupp
Aerospace, a subsidiary of thyssenkrupp Materials Services, and its locations in 22
countries, is used for the further production of almost all aerospace segments, such as
outer shells, seats and structural parts for Boeing and Airbus, among others.

AMAG is the specialist for established aerospace materials and customised solutions
for customer-specific applications. AMAG products stand out due to their high scrap
input ratio and the associated extremely low CO2 emissions.
