Tradition meets innovation: Baden-Württemberg’s suppliers to the aerospace industry at ILA 2014

18 companies from Baden-Württemberg will be sharing the joint Baden-Württemberg stand in the International Suppliers Center (ISC) at ILA, the international air show in Berlin, from 20 to 22 May 2014.

 The joint Baden-Württemberg stand (No. 1606) in Hall A1 will be run as a cooperative effort between Baden-Württemberg International (bw-i) and the Forum Luft- und Raumfahrt Baden-Württemberg e.V. (LRBW = Aerospace Forum Baden-Württemberg). It will provide German and foreign visitors with an overview of the highly innovative aerospace industry in Baden-Württemberg.  In collaboration with the Swiss Aerospace Cluster, the joint Baden-Württemberg stand will again be serving as a presentation platform for nine Swiss companies as well. The joint trade fair appearance is an excellent example of the successful cross-border cooperation that has been engaged in for many years.

Baden-Württemberg: High-tech location of the aerospace industry.

In Baden-Württemberg, the aerospace industry has a long tradition: the Zeppelin and the first aeroplane made of fibre-reinforced plastic were built here. Illustrious names such as Maybach, Dornier, Klemm and Heinkel are reminders of some of the state’s outstanding pioneering developments. Today, aerospace is one of Baden-Württemberg’s most successful sectors, offering a wide range of sophisticated high-tech products such as systems for helicopters and commercial aircraft, guided missiles, the latest radar technology and new kinds of airships. In the space segment, there is a special focus on scientific satellites and telecommunications.

With its numerous companies operating in the area of aerospace, Baden-Württemberg has now become a centre of the industry in Germany.  The more than 14,000 people employed in the aerospace industry generate over 4.5 billion euros in turnover. Aerospace is not only important in itself; its products have to be especially lightweight and efficient while offering maximum reliability in extreme environmental conditions. Given this know-how, it drives innovation and technological progress for many other industries in Baden-Württemberg.

This innovative strength is also largely a result of the highly developed and closely knit network of universities, colleges and research institutes which serve as a source of new ideas for the industry and also keeps it supplied with highly qualified specialists. In addition to the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR = national aeronautics and space research centre), the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) as well as other universities and research institutes of the Innovation Alliance of  Baden-Württemberg and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the University of Stuttgart in particular occupies a prominent position. The latter boasts the largest faculty of aerospace in Europe, producing around 80  per cent of all graduates specializing in aerospace engineering and approximately 30 per cent of all aeronautics graduates.

At ILA 2014, the experts from Baden-Württemberg International and the Forum Luft- und Raumfahrt will be providing information to companies from Germany and abroad and advising them on the opportunities for investment and cooperation in Baden-Württemberg. Moreover, the joint Baden-Württemberg stand will serve as point of contact for students and job seekers from technical professions who want to find out about the possibilities of employment in the aerospace industry or other technical sectors in Baden-Württemberg. Detailed information on working and living in Baden-Württemberg can be found on the Internet at www.bw-jobs.de.

Further information on the 18 Baden-Württemberg companies as well as on the institutions that will be presenting themselves on the joint Baden-Württemberg stand is provided in the exhibitors‘ flyer.
