thyssenkrupp Aerospace and Mecachrome Group sign MoU

thyssenkrupp Aerospace and the Mecachrome Group, one of the five largest manufacturers of aerospace parts in Europe, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a five-year extension of their existing long-term partnership.

thyssenkrupp Aerospace, part of thyssenkrupp Materials Services, one of the world’s leading mill-independent materials distribution and service providers, will deliver material management solutions to the Mecachrome Group, including the supply of cut-to-size aluminium plates to France and North Africa.

The contract covers a range of services, including optimising the use of raw materials, logistics planning to anticipate distribution and delivery challenges. It also incorporates purchasing management, specifically managing Conbid, the consolidated material supply process used for Airbus. New additions to the partnership agreement take advantage of the “Materials as a Service” offering from thyssenkrupp Aerospace, especially the use of a digital control tower for highly effective performance and forecast management.

Emmanuel Soubigou, CEO of thyssenkrupp Aerospace France, said: “We’re delighted to sign this MoU and to continue our long-term partnership with Mecachrome. The control tower services that are included in this renewed contract will enable us to provide even better control of the inventory we deliver to Mecachrome so there’s less stockpiling and an efficiency boost to their operations.”

Christian Cornille, CEO of the Mecachrome Group added: “The unpredictable nature of the aerospace industry means it’s beneficial to build long-term, stable partnerships. This is exactly why we’re very happy to continue this mutually beneficial working relationship with thyssenkrupp Aerospace. Their expertise in materials supply and end-to-end supply chain management services acts as a buffer against the turbulence of the industry so that we can focus on our core business.”
