Alcan and Airbus have signed a long-term agreement covering the supply of high-performance aluminum products for the entire range of Airbus aircraft, including the A380 and new A350XWB. Details of the contract were not disclosed, but Alcan says the deal “underscores our position as the largest supplier of aluminum products to Airbus.” Materials will be supplied from Alcan’s Issoire facility in France, which in June 2006 increased its plate manufacturing capacity by 20 percent.
