At Airbus, partners and suppliers are part of our extended family, and they play a crucial role in the common business success. Around 60-80% of Airbus’ activity is sourced and we work with more than 12,000 suppliers worldwide that provide products and services for flying and non-flying parts. The United States has long been a valued industrial partner to Airbus. We are continuously developing our supplier base, focusing today on identifying partners offering innovative and disruptive technologies to enable Airbus to provide first-class products and services to our U.S. and international customers. Since 1990, we have spent over $200 billion dollars with hundreds of U.S. suppliers – $48 billion in the last three years alone. This makes Airbus the largest export company for the U.S. aerospace industry.
