On 5 November 2008, the Fischer Advanced Composite Components (FACC) corporation, a leading company specialised in the development, design and manufacture of composite components and systems for civil aircraft, announced in a press release the creation of around 100 jobs by March 2009. This is because the company headquartered in Ried (Upper Austria) has received an open-ended order to produce flap track fairing systems for the Airbus plane series A330, A340 and A380. The volume of this order amounts to € 58.5 million within the next four years. The whole FACC group had a turnover of € 251.9 million in the business year 2007-8 and currently employs 1,600 workers in Austria and about 40 abroad.
