Airbus for suppliers
Airbus has created a truly global supply chain that contributes to the success of its growing aircraft product line.
The company relies on industrial co-operation and partnerships with major companies all over the world, and a global network of some 7,700 suppliers.
If you are a supplier interested in:
- becoming part of the Airbus aircraft production supply chain
- working specifically on the new Airbus Alabama A320 Family final assembly line project
Please register your company’s information through the Airbus / Airbus Group ePROC tool.
You may be contacted in the future by a buyer. You will receive your login details once the buyer invites you to participate in a Call for Tender.
The Airbus / Airbus Group ePROC tool allows you to describe your capabilities to Airbus buyers who will then contact you directly when an opportunity arises. The Airbus / Airbus Group ePROC tool also allows buyers and suppliers to exchange requirements and proposals online during the bidding process.
For small and medium-sized companies, the points of contact may be our 1st and 2nd tier suppliers. Please use any existing contacts you may already have with these suppliers.

Connecting with the world of Airbus via Internet
From forecast to invoicing, AirbusSupply portal provides suppliers with the latest Airbus news, projects and tools. As the privileged point of entry for suppliers, it will enable them to manage their performance, exchange product information and spot opportunities soon - essential to keep improving quality, which is key to continuing customer satisfaction.
AirbusSupply covers procurement, supply chain, product development, engineering, aircraft programmes and customer support. It represents ever-closer collaboration between Airbus and its suppliers.
Airbus Procurement is responsible for providing externally sourced goods and services to time, cost and quality requirements as agreed with the Airbus programmes and operations functions.
Procurement implements standards, policies and processes across all of Airbus and its supply chain. This allows Procurement to manage its relations with suppliers, monitor their performance and drive corrective and improvement actions in close collaboration with Manufacturing and Quality.
Airbus and its supply base have grown considerably and successfully over the past 40 years.
In early 2013, Airbus Procurement has been reorganised to reinforce Supply Chain management and to ensure Supply Chain readiness for the upcoming aircraft production ramp-up.
We welcome existing and new suppliers to work with us to achieve even more success.
