Aerospace & Airports
Every year, tens of thousands of people fly millions of miles in aircraft built by Europe’s prime example of industrial co-operation – Airbus Industrie. From the early days of the A300 to the A380 “super jumbo” seen opposite, a Langley company has supplied vital components for every Airbus in service today. Providing rigidity and strength to the fuselage of the aircraft, many kilometres of specially profiled metal sections called “stringers” are fabricated into the skin of every aircraft built - manufactured by the aerospace division of Claudius Peters near Hamburg.
Piller Power Systems meanwhile, from its headquarters near Hanover, has developed a worldwide reputation in the field of aircraft ground power systems. Piller systems can also be found providing back-up power for airport landing, runway lighting and instrument landing (ILS) systems and supporting air traffic control systems in some of the busiest airspace in the world, ensuring that when we fly, the crucial electronic systems that monitor and control aircraft movements are backed up by the most reliable power protection systems available.
