Eve signs four long-term supplier agreements
KRD will supply custom designed KASIGLAS windows, Latecoere the doors, and RALLC and Alltec were selected to supply various fuselage components.

Eve Air Mobility has named four additional suppliers for its eVTOL aircraft. KRD Luftfahrttechnik will supply its KASIGLAS polycarbonate windows, Latecoere will supply the aircraft's doors while RALLC and Alltec will both supply fuselage components.

"Eve has assembled a strong list of global and local suppliers with a reputation for not only delivering outstanding quality, but doing so reliably," ays CEO Johann Bordais. "These long-term relationships will cover the aircraft's entire life cycle including all prototypes, production and aftermarket service and operational support."

KRD, headquartered in Germany, will supply custom designed KASIGLAS windows including the cockpit and passenger door windows. Each window has been developed for extreme durability and their polycarbonate construction will not only minimise the weight of each window but provide additional protection including increased impact resistance.

Latecoere, headquartered in France, will supply the doors. The company supports multiple aircraft manufacturers, including Embraer, and provides design and development, production, certification and in-service support for all of its doors.

RALLC and Alltec, both headquartered in Brazil, were selected to supply various fuselage components. RALLC is a supplier that covers all stages of the manufacturing processes for structural components, providing integrated and innovative solutions for several aerospace companies including Embraer. Alltec specialises in the development and production of components and subassemblies in high-performance composite materials for the aeronautical, defence and security markets. A supplier to Embraer, Alltec will supply its thermoplastic composite and thermosetting composite technologies for the fuselage of the eVTOL.

Last year, Eve announced that its first eVTOL production facility will be located in the city of Taubaté in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. The company has begun assembly of its first full-scale prototype, which will be followed by a test campaign. Eve's eVTOL is scheduled to begin deliveries and enter into service in 2026.

Concurrently, Eve continues to develop a comprehensive portfolio of agnostic services and operations solutions, including Vector, a unique urban air traffic management software to optimise and scale urban air mobility operations worldwide.
