www.txtav.com/jetsEve Holding, an Embraer spinoff company that is developing Urban Air Mobility (UAM) solutions, announced that it has chosen Porsche Consulting, Inc. to help define the eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) supply chain, global manufacturing and logistics macro strategy.

Considering advanced manufacturing research and innovation, the companies will combine their aeronautic and automotive expertise to support Eve’s implementation plan. The master services agreement that has been entered into by and between the companies includes studies on industrial operation, logistics, supply chain and parts distribution in an unprecedented approach optimised for efficiency, productivity and safety.

The study will address scalability and distributed production as the UAM market evolves to meet projected demand. While digital transformation generates new possibilities for the industry’s use of more agile technologies focusing on business and sustainability goals, comprehensive network solutions are under consideration to meet unique industry needs.

“We are pleased to work with a leader in the industry that can support us with strategic decision making. The UAM ecosystem is quickly evolving, and we can only achieve our goal if we spark enthusiasm for new ideas in manufacturing and supply chain areas,” said Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve. “I’m looking forward to seeing all of the new opportunities ahead, as technologies are profoundly changing industrial production.”

“We are very proud of our new partnership with Eve, because we have the opportunity to shape the future of mobility together”, said Rudy Leutz, CEO of Porsche Consulting Ltda. “We share the same values, and with industry-leading know-how, we will be able to question and challenge all existing concepts for logistics and manufacturing. We will redesign the industrialisation concept for that new aircraft based on the highest levels of efficiency, quality, safety and customer centricity.”
