Aerospace Industry

The aviation industry in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region is one of Süderelbe AG’s focal points. Its expertise in project management and networking with important institutions from research, industry and politics – at the local, national and international levels – have consolidated Süderelbe AG’s status as a key player in the world’s third-largest location for civil aviation.

Süderelbe AG’s goals are to secure long-term competitiveness, to foster and expand knowledge transfer, and to further develop the entire value chain.

Our success speaks for itself: Süderelbe AG is a founding member of the European Aerospace Cluster Partnership (EACP) and co-initiator of the Germany-wide Supply Chain Excellence Initiative (SCE). In addition, for over a decade, it has fostered close ties with the Seattle-based Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance (PNAA), the largest aerospace cluster in the world. Every year, Süderelbe AG has organised a delegation trip to the PNAA’s annual conference. Furthermore, on trips aimed at tapping new markets, Süderelbe AG has been able to forge ties with Japan, Brazil and Mexico.
