We are now an AEO certified company!

As of May 9, 2011 AFS Aichach has become one of few AEO-F certified companies in Europe.

The aim of the AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) is to have customs authorities and certified businesses jointly responsible for safe and secure cross-border transactions. The AEO F certification is the highest internationally recognized hallmark of excellence that can be awarded by the European customs authorities. This certificate can be compared to the C-TPAT (American Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism). The goal of both organizations is to secure the end-to-end supply chain of goods from manufacturer to end consumer.

As an AEO-F certified company AFS Aichach is recognized as being compliant in secured and simplified customs procedures and as such as a particularly trustworthy and reliable supplier within the international Aerospace business.
