Industrial outsourcing for the aerospace industry
Drolshagen / Frankfurt. Berghoff, the specialist and global market leader for industrial outsourcing in the field of mechanical manufacturing, is attending the Airtec trade fair in Frankfurt for the first time and thus underlines its special focus on the precision and high-tech aerospace industry. The Airtec 2014 takes place from October 28 to 30 in Frankfurt and is one of the most important international meeting places for decision-makers in the aerospace industry. It represents the entire supply chain starting from design, engineering, testing and simulation to materials, production, tools, components and systems, electronics and sensor technology up to lifecycle support in one trade fair. In addition, Airtec is one of the largest international specialist conventions in this sector. For companies like Airbus, Boing, Bombardier, Bell, Honeywell and many other market leaders, Airtec has become a fixed date in the annual schedule in order to meet and come into contact with the best suppliers worldwide.
The trade exhibition focuses on new technologies, innovations and trends and gives a comprehensive overview of the aerospace supply industry. Thus, it also provides Berghoff the possibility to present its capacities.
In hall 11.0 at booth E75, the family-owned company with plants in Drolshagen and Wenden (Southern Westphalia) as well as in Altdorf (Switzerland) is going to present its broad expertise and absolutely precise production processes. The Berghoff Group has top modern machinery and processing centres for milling and turning operations of up to 5,500 milimetres and up to 25 tons as well as fully air-conditioned production sites. This enables Berghoff to meet the highest demands in metal processing and to realize ranges of a thousandth of a millimeter: the best preconditions for the extremely high quality and safety requirements of the aerospace industry. Moreover, in December Berghoff will be re-certified according to EN 9100.
Since 1984, the Berghoff Group – with about 190 employees and a production space of more than 11,000 square meters – has been one of the leading companies worldwide for industrial outsourcing in the area of mechanical production. The business philosophy: to establish long-term strategic co-operations with demanding industrial clients who wish to reduce their own production range and outsource competences and who are looking for a premium outsourcing partner for mechanical chipping.
Requirements in the fields of low and mid-volume production up to a quantity of approximately 20,000 units per year can be covered. Berghoff processes, among others, cast iron, steel, aluminum, titanium, tungsten, stainless steel and plastics.
The Berghoff method – a proprietary methodology to obtain precision not only in the actual machining of work pieces, but in the entire outsourcing process and for the entire value chain – covers procurement and pre-testing of materials, the joint development of the production strategy, CAD/CAM programming, mechanical production, quality management, cleaning, assembly and logistics as well as the delivery of ready-to-install products on site. The company has received multiple awards for its high process and manufacturing standard as well as its commitment to sustainable and resource-preserving methods – among others from the German Federal Environment Ministry and as a finalist in the Best Professional Supplier Award 2013.
At Airtec, the Berghoff Group can be found in hall 11.0 at booth E75. Various exhibits that illustrate the performance even for most complex requirements will be presented. In addition, visitors can discover many advantages and arguments relating to industrial outsourcing, in particular with regard to the aerospace industry.
