Volvo Aero acquires composite company to develop lighter aircraft engines

In December, Volvo Aero acquired the composite company Applied Composites AB (ACAB) in Linköping, which currently has approximately 70 employees. The aim of the acquisition is to use ACAB and its technology to develop and manufacture aircraft engine components in composite materials, which are significantly lighter than the comparable parts in metal. “The acquisition is part of our investment in lightweight technologies, which will result in reduced fuel consumption and, consequently, lower emissions from aircraft,” explains Olof Persson, President of Volvo Aero.
