By: Carl-Friedrich Flothmann

  • After a competitive bidding process, Airbus has renewed it confidence to the consortium led by PLANITEC,enlarging it to all the divisions of the Airbus Group in France, Germany, Spain and the UK.
  • The consortium will address PMO (Project Management Office) services as preferred supplier.
  • PLANITEC will cover the French and German market, while AERTEC Solutions will address Spain and the UK.
  • AERTEC Solutions is already preferred supplier to Airbus in manufacturing engineering services for Airbus'scivil and military aircraft, but thanks to the signing of this contract, the company will be able to take on workloads from any of the Group's divisions.

3rd July 2017. PLANITEC, the project management specialist and AERTEC Solutions, the engineering and consultancy firm specializing in aeronautics, have just signed a new contract with Airbus making them preferred supplier for project and programme management services, known as PMO (Project Management Office). These services include, among others, the deployment and application of project management processes, methods and tools. The wide scope of services notably embraces planning & scheduling, cost control, risk management and above all : project steering to meet the targets.

The partnership formed by PLANITEC and AERTEC Solutions participated in a competitive bidding process which, for the first time, was aimed at covering PMO services for the entire AIRBUS organization. This new contract has an initial duration of three years with possible extension to five years. Both companies will support the management of programmes and projects, principally for Airbus Operations (which includes their civil programs), Airbus Helicopters, Airbus Defence & Space and PAG, in all countries (France, Germany, Spain and the UK).

AERTEC Solutions is the only Spanish company that has been named preferred supplier to Airbus in PMO services out of all the contracts awarded, although it has previously offered these services to Airbus in the aircraft manufacturer's plants in Getafe and Seville.

One of the main challenges of this contract is to unify the working formula of all Airbus suppliers, uniformly and objectively. In this regard, the experience that both AERTEC Solutions and PLANITEC have as partners in the development of PMO services represents an important advantage when participating in transformation plan that Airbus wants to carry out.


PLANITEC is the project management specialist. With over 45 years of experience, our 300 consultants are proud to provide and implement solutions for effective project steering. We work in major industrial fields in France, Germany and all over the world, on many highly complex technical and structural projects.
