The Austrian aircraft supplier FACC is to hire additional 180 employees by the end of the current fiscal year (i.e. end of February 2012). The Chinese owned company Fischer Advanced Composite Components (FACC), which was bought by Xi'an Aircraft Industry in late 2009, is to invest EUR 35 million in its sites in the Upper Austrian region Innviertel, including building a new site as the existing ones have reached their capacity limits.

Development and construction are to be bundled and expanded at the new site. With the company's announcement, rumours about the partial relocation of the company to China have been dispersed. Some 450 engineers are to be employed at the new site (no timeline available). The technical director of the company, Mr Pleli, states that by 2014 the company's turnover will have doubled based on the supply volumes that have already been agreed upon.
