Aequs Chairman and CEO Aravind Melligeri said that it is a significant moment in Aequs’ journey with Airbus. “We are proud to stand alongside the world’s largest aircraft maker as a long-term strategic partner. It is also a testimony to the confidence in Aequs by global OEMs to enter into a deeper and longer relationships, particularly at a time when the global supply chain is passing through a recalibration.
