European defence and aerospace manufacturer, EADS, has bought three aircraft hangar doors for their aircraft production facility in Toulouse.
The doors are sized to accommodate a Super Jumbo, measuring 92m x 29m. Champion Door engineers will deliver and install two of the doors during Summer 2013, with a third door being installed in early 2014, after a new hangar been constructed.
The selection process was particularly astute, Airbus taking care and consideration in reviewing Champion Door's track record, as well as requesting technical information to ensure that their hangar doors were up to the task. The negotiations proceeded smoothly, Airbus recognising Champion Door's 40 year history, global reputation and extensive distribution network.
Aircraft Hangar Doors
Given the location of the facility, Airbus needed doors that would keep hangars heated and equipment protected during harsh Winter seasons. Champion Door's insulated hangar doors were a natural choice, able to retain more heat than competing products for greater efficiently and cost savings.
Airbus has provided positive feedback regarding the purchasing process. The company has made clear that they knew exactly what they were buying and when the aircraft hangar doors would be installed. Stand out collaboration with architects and designers for the various hangars has ensured Airbus of Champion Door's ability to deliver.
The reason for favouring Champion Door stems from the hangar door design itself, but also from their ability to deliver on time, providing flexible installation and superb after-care services. As a family run business, the company has a genuine commitment to their customers and a strong desire to understand and deliver on their requests.
The agreement reached between Airbus and Champion Door Oy has taken its place among the heavy weight classification of the lift up door market. By placing a great emphasis on customer service, the company has earned its reputation as a lead supplier of aircraft hangar doors for the defence and aerospace sector. There's no doubt that this deal has laid the foundations for a great business partnership and brilliant results for both parties.
