The Airbus SQIP Program

The aim of the Airbus SQIP Program is to advance major strategic Airbus suppliers toward the goal of industrial excellence regarding product quality and delivery reliability. Every year, the performance of each supplier is reviewed and either confirmed or, in case of non-conformity with the quality standards, downgraded or even rejected.

Over more than 25 years, Chemetall and Airbus have established a long-lasting and successful business relationship. The recognition of Chemetall’s outstanding performance with the Airbus SQIP Award is a testament to the company's commitment to excellence and the strength of its partnership with Airbus.
