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. Thanks to its lightness, strength, and corrosion resistance, aluminium is the material of choice to meet today’s aerospace challenges.

We work with the industry’s designers, assemblers, and suppliers to make commercial aircraft even more lightweight, efficient, affordable, and reliable. We also undertake innovative initiatives to recycle customer scrap by alloy type, allowing a direct return to the production process without loss of properties.

The aluminium recycling life cycle starts with scrap generated inside our plants and customer sites, and ends with remelting aluminium scrap from aircraft that have reached the end of their service lives.

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.

Seven different Constellium Airware® alloys are flying today for applications such as bare exterior fuselage skin, stringers, floor structure and seat tracks, window frames, and large internal wing and fuselage components. They include (specific data sheets are available by clicking on the alloy number):

We also have new alloy development for fuselage and wings.

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 in Europe and Boeing in the US.

We also work closely with designers and manufacturers of regional and business jets, including ATR, Bombardier, Dassault Aviation, Embraer, Gulfstream, and Pilatus.

In 2016, we were pleased to sign a new multi-year contract with Airbus for the provision of advanced aerospace aluminium products and solutions. This contract builds on the partnership agreement signed with Airbus in 2010 that marked the introduction of our Airware® technology on the A350 XWB. We will also collaborate with Airbus to improve supply chain and recycling solutions and reduce inventory along the value chain. These initiatives will support the ramp-up of key Airbus programs such as the A320neo and the A350 XWB.

In 2017, Constellium announced that it has extended its long-term contract with aircraft manufacturer Pilatus to support its new executive jets aircraft program. With this agreement Constellium will supply an increased volume of aerospace plates to Pilatus.

Constellium also announced that it has signed a multi-year agreement with Bombardier to 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. In this new contract, Constellium will become one of the leading suppliers of flat rolled products to Bombardier globally, strengthening its position as a strategic supplier.
