Poly­tec, a lead­ing devel­op­er and man­u­fac­tur­er of high-qual­i­ty plas­tic, has part­nered with Fly­Now Avi­a­tion to advance urban air mobil­i­ty.

For more than 35 years, Poly­tec has been offer­ing its cus­tomers expe­ri­ence and know-how, not only as a com­plete sup­pli­er for injec­tion mould­ing, but also as a spe­cial­ist for fibre rein­forced and polyurethane com­po­nents.

Fly­Now Avi­a­tion GmbH devel­ops and pro­duces an auto­mat­i­cal­ly fly­ing, elec­tric mod­u­lar eVTOL fam­i­ly con­sist­ing of car­go and per­son­al air vehi­cles. The com­pa­ny claims these eVTOLs are con­cep­tu­al­ly supe­ri­or to all cur­rent­ly known devel­op­ments of manned and unmanned eVTOLs in the areas of noise emis­sion, ener­gy effi­cien­cy, ergonom­ics, pro­duc­tion cost and cost of oper­a­tion.

More­over, com­po­nent weight and sta­bil­i­ty play a cen­tral role. For over two years, Fly­Now Avi­a­tion and Poly­tec have col­lab­o­rat­ed to devel­op ultra­light struc­tur­al plas­tic parts for the eVTOL fam­i­ly apply­ing inno­v­a­tive and sus­tain­able process­es for mass pro­duc­tion.

Poly­tec and Fly­Now Avi­a­tion both share the same pas­sion for inno­va­tion to joint­ly work on a safe, com­fort­able and clean means of trans­port for future mobil­i­ty.

Found­ed in 1986, Poly­tec is an Aus­tri­an-­based com­pa­ny with around 3,400 employ­ees world­wide, which has been offer­ing its cus­tomers ­expe­ri­ence and know-how, not only as a com­plete sup­pli­er in the injec­tion ­mould­ing field, but also as a spe­cial­ist for fibre-­re­in­forced ­plas­tics, a pro­ducer of orig­i­nal acces­sories made from plas­tic and ­spe­cial steel.

In both the auto­mo­tive and non-auto­mo­tive areas, Poly­tec pro­vides val­ue-added depth that incor­po­rates design and project devel­op­ment, as well as the pro­duc­tion of tools and semis for fibre com­pound mate­ri­als, com­po­nent sim­u­la­tion and test­ing, and vir­tu­al­ly all the avail­able plas­tics pro­cess­ing tech­nolo­gies. In addi­tion, Poly­tec sup­plies excel­lent per­for­mance in the shape of down­stream process­es such as paint­ing, assem­bly and just-in-time or just-in-sequence deliv­ery.
