A great triumph for the team from Plansee Tungsten Alloys in France: receipt of the "Gold Supplier Award" from UTC Group - Aerospace System Division (UTAS).

This award is due not only to the high quality of the components for the aerospace industry but also the company's highly developed quality process, outstanding performance at the level of “one-time delivery”, and continuous improvement process. In this way, Plansee Tungsten Alloys has secured itself exclusive supplier status for tungsten/heavy metal balance weights for the two divisions HAMILTON and RATIER FIGEAC and has qualified us as a supplier to further companies in the UTC Group.

In total, 75 out of 3,000 suppliers worldwide possess Gold Status, including four European companies. The award was handed over to Dr. Wolfgang Köck, Executive Vice President at Plansee, and his team on 16th November 2017.
