Shore-up your stocks – Airbus instructs their suppliers


According to Reuters, Airbus “laid down the law to its stretched supply chain”, with a senior U.S. executive reminding contractors to meet timing and quality targets and recommending that suppliers shore up “buffer stocks” of critical materials.

Elise Charbonneau, Airbus Americas’ head of procurement strategy and transformation, said it was “very important” that suppliers create “buffer stocks” of critical items as she laid out the steps needed to allow Airbus to increase production.

“We need our suppliers to deliver [to] their contract,” Charbonneau said. “That means delivering on time, on quality, on specification, on quantity, at the right site. … We also need you to control your own suppliers.”
