Success stories and project references

Thanks to this project, we became the main supplier for Airbus systems engineering in the UK. We cover all activities from research and technology and new product development to service support for the entire Airbus flying aircraft.

This multifaceted project is extremely challenging to manage as it covers a wide range of skills, seniorities, processes, customer interfaces and products. Our teams mainly operate from our premises so that they can meet our client’s highest expectations. Furthermore, working from our site is a good way to offer our employees amazing career opportunities.

Our expertise has been widely recognised by our client, Dominic Anderson, head of Landing Gear Systems in Airbus UK.

This project has recently been audited and we received our client’s approval as Design Organisation Approval (DOA) relevant supplier.

Thanks to subcontracting groups and our international network, we were able to support Siemens for critical safety related activities in the UK. This allows us to resolve the local shortage of engineering capabilities and to offer first class international engineering services, recognised by our clients’ end customers.

Jaguar Land Rover is one of the most successful and iconic British car manufacturers and frequently face challenging expectations and complicated requirements. In 2015, they entrusted AKKA Technologies to support them in an advanced project development. For this particular project, we deployed UK-based members of staff whilst utilising the outstanding capabilities of AKKA Technologies’ MBtech capabilities in the Czech Republic, demonstrating our ability to be both truly local, yet global.
