Paris 2023: Stellantis, Archer Move Partnership from ‘Concept Phase’ to ‘Execution Phase’

Archer Aviation and Stellantis have announced progress in their strategic manufacturing partnership at the 2023 Paris Air Show. With construction now well underway on the world’s first high-volume eVTOL aircraft manufacturing facility located on an approximately 100-acre campus in Covington, Georgia, Stellantis recently increased its strategic shareholding through a series of purchases of Archer stock in the open market.

“During the manufacturing ramp-up phase, the goal is to leverage each company’s respective strengths to enable the rapid scaling of aircraft production to meet Archer’s commercialisation plans” according to the press release. “As the two companies rapidly progress towards bringing this facility online in mid-2024, there are now experienced Stellantis personnel working full time alongside the Archer team, supporting operational readiness with the current focus being on manufacturing automation and component sourcing. Stellantis personnel are now embedded across almost all areas of Archer’s operations, including manufacturing, engineering, supply chain, quality, facilities and human resources.

“Initial manufacturing operations will be capable of producing up to 650 aircraft per year with room for expansion to support production of up to 2,300 aircraft per year. Manufacturing aircraft at these volumes would make this site the world’s leading aircraft manufacturing facility by volume.”
