It is important to me that people can travel globally. That is why I am with Diehl.

Ulrich Evers Head of Cabin Systems, Diehl Aviation Laupheim

For as long as it exists, the aviation industry has stood for innovation like no other. For us at Diehl Aviation, innovations are even more: part of our DNA. This ensures that we remain competitive even in the age of digitalization and sustainability. Because today, aviation companies like us live above all on their innovative strength and their dynamics in developing new products and services and successfully launching them on market. Always geared towards one goal: to enable everyone to fly comfortably and safely in the future as well.

As an aviation Company we contribute to connecting cultures while also keeping the ecological aspect of flying in mind.

As a Head of series design I am responsible for the areas of air distribution systems, system integration and technical project management. A lot has changed in the industry in recent years. After "faster, higher, farther", other factors will also count in the future. Of course, aircraft programs nowadays also have to meet high ecological goals. Together with my teams, I can make a big difference by improving our products through lightweight construction and new, more sustainable materials. For example, we have realized novel thermoplastic construction methods with energy-saving manufacturing technologies. A solution that meets the high demands placed on our products and enables us to recycle our components at the end of the aircraft's life. An exciting task - but there are many other interesting areas and jobs at our company.

Diehl Aviation: The most important company key facts at a glance.

Who do we work for at Diehl Aviation? Almost all renowned aircraft manufacturers around the world.

We are a respected partner of the aviation industry and our customer list includes almost all renowned manufacturers from Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Embraer to Gulfstream and of course urban air mobility startups like Volocopter and Lilium. We are connected with many of our customers by a partnership that has been going on for decades. And for a good reason: we are one of the global technology leaders in the area of aircraft system and cabin solutions.

From silo to system thinking.

We do a lot to secure our technological edge. For example, for decades we have been working intensively in the field of research & development - the result is a large number of patents. Additionally, being part of a family business makes us economically independent and more flexible. However, our future success is guaranteed above all by the way we work: hand in hand across all locations so as to exploit synergies. We have created the right conditions for this system thinking, said goodbye to silo thinking and broken down hierarchies. We work in smaller, powerful and connected units. In a culture that relies on cooperation and treats mistakes not as failures but as opportunities.

In my family, almost everyone is self-employed. It gives me a good feeling to work for a family-run business like Diehl Aviation.
