The office of the Liebherr-Aerospace liaison team is now closer to the facilities of Airbus in Hamburg (Germany), and will enable the engineering and R&D teams of Liebherr and the aircraft manufacturer to further boost their close cooperation. Liebherr-Aerospace will conduct engineering as well as testing and will support fast track development works on site.

Peter Eusemann, Liebherr-Aerospace’s Liaison Manager for Airbus, said: “Fast, efficient development of new technologies will be an essential driver of tomorrow’s aircraft. Being able to work closer with Airbus’ engineering teams is expected to foster new ideas, enable their immediate realization and implement such technologies quickly into the market. It will be a key contributor to our ability to propose the best technologies and products to Airbus for their next aircraft.”
