AIX to be postponed to 2022 – Virtual event instead

AIX to be postponed to 2022 – Virtual event instead

The Aircraft Interiors Expo will not take place as usual in 2021, but will move to a virtual event, which will be realised from 14 to 16 September 2021.

We all miss meeting face to face again. But the situation around the world remains unpredictable due to the COVID 19 pandemic and the ongoing challenges and global restrictions on international travel. Therefore, the difficult decision was made by AIX to postpone the physical event to next year, 14-16 June 2022.

By moving to a virtual platform, the organiser is now trying to provide a place to still meet and share ideas to accelerate the industry’s recovery.

The event will create new channels for airlines and supply chains to find solutions, discover the latest innovations and make important business connections.

We remain positive and look forward to seeing you again at AIX in June 2022 at the latest.

More details on the new virtual event will be announced shortly.

Hebmüller Aerospace – Changes towards 2021

Hebmüller Aerospace – Changes towards 2021

The year 2020 has certainly turned out differently than we all planned.

Due to the COVID 19 Corona Pandemic, some branches of the economy around the world have collapsed.

We have used the crisis and digitalized the processes in our company. This has also led to restructuring in some areas of Hebmüller SRS Technik GmbH in order to be able to act more efficiently with the help of the digitalized processes.

As of 31.12.2020 Mr. Guido Otterbein will leave the company as managing partner at his own request. For more than 10 years Guido Otterbein has worked as a leading engineer at Hebmüller SRS Technik GmbH. Guido Otterbein will continue to advise the company in the coming years. We would like to thank Mr. Guido Otterbein for his tireless efforts for the benefit of the company and its employees. We wish Mr. Guido Otterbein all the best for his future and are looking forward to our future cooperation.

We, Hebmüller SRS Technik GmbH and Hebmueller Aerospace, Inc. are well prepared for the future.

Also, in the future we will continue with our slogan: TRUST IN MORE.

In this spirit we wish you good health, a peaceful Advent Season and a good start into the year 2021.

Axel Hebmueller at the panel “Chance USA” of IHK North-Rhine Westphalia

IHK NRW: “The USA is a country in transition. Much has been turned inside out in recent years. Nevertheless, the USA is one of NRW’s most important partners for trade and investment. The size of the market attracts worldwide attention. Venture capital firms, innovative strength and an affinity for technology have distinguished the USA for many years. San Francisco, Silicon Valley and New York are considered so attractive by companies around the world that they are particularly interested in these hotspots.

The “Chance USA” panel is aimed at entrepreneurs who are becoming active in the USA for the first time and at those who would like to expand their US business, whether by export/import or by founding a company locally.”

 Your Hebmueller Team

Because of the Corona Virus and the developments we have taken the following organizational measures: We have divided our staff into three teams. These teams were built in order not to meet with each other. The first team starts at 7 a.m. until 12 p.m., the second team works from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and the third team works from home. The time between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. is needed to ensure that the one team has left before the next team arrives. During that time the phone is forwarded and covered. However if you do not reach us please use one of the following phone numbers:

Axel Hebmüller +49-163-5911955

This much-cited and, let’s face it, now very tiresome demand, is one that very few companies actually comply with. as soon as you take a closer look, there is often enough a gulf between claim and reality.

However, Hebmueller Aerospace is completely different. Founded in 1995 locally in Kaarst/NRW, they supply the large aviation companies such as Boeing and Airbus with special valves. First-class engineering technology that has to meet the very highest requirements.

Axel Hebmueller quickly recognized the need for transcontinental cooperation and also founded a branch in the USA. Technology from Kaarst for the global market.

Today, this only works in dialogue with the large high-tech companies through consistent digitalization of all production and business processes.
