Being a waste management specialist, REMONDIS is using its experience and know-how to help Airbus – and contributing towards the overall success of the company
REMONDIS is the service partner collecting and processing all the production waste generated by the Airbus plants in Hamburg, Stade and Buxtehude which belong to the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS). A complex task for us as the waste from EADS' plants in Hamburg and Stade also contains hazardous materials.
Effective quality management: REMONDIS guarantees that there are high levels of quality and safety at all times
One of the main conditions of Airbus' central purchasing department was that all of the waste management services for the Hamburg, Stade and Buxtehude plants and Premium Aerotec's plant in Varel had to be provided by just one competent partner. They opted for REMONDIS – underlining the fact that we are able to fulfil all conditions in the best possible way.
One of REMONDIS' tasks was to dismantle an electroplating plant at EADS' Hamburg site which involved removing around 150t of liquid from the collection tanks within a very short space of time. The tanks and the hall were cleaned by the company's subsidiary emv, whilst REMONDIS Industrie Service provided a round-the-clock service collecting the liquids and transporting them to its processing plant in Lübeck.
EADS delivered 534 planes to its customers in 2011. It had a turnover of 49 billion euros in the same year
The work at EADS is not simply a matter of providing a few containers and ensuring they are emptied regularly. On the contrary, the REMONDIS experts were required to develop and implement a complex waste management concept which covered a number of tasks including:
Once again, REMONDIS' work at EADS has shown that it is able to standardise processes, reduce transport requirements and make the best use of the logistics systems in place.
The leading aircraft manufacturer Airbus is an EADS subsidiary. Besides its head office in Toulouse, France, Airbus also has business locations in Germany, Spain and Great Britain.
Thanks to its many branches, associated companies and divisional companies, REMONDIS has the perfect set-up for all the waste management tasks needed at Airbus.
