Our headquarters is in the technology park directly adjacent to the Bremen Airport, our management board and main administrative management staff work at this location. The Electrical Engineering Department, certification facilities, Electronic Development Department and Production for the OEM aviation market are also located here.
The company building, shaped like an aircraft wing, was built in 2005.
Our company’s success and growth over the years has made it necessary to expand. In September 2013, AES unveiled a new headquarters building, double in size, to accommodate our growth. Further company growth required even more spatial expansion. Therefore, we built a new 6.450 sqft warehouse at our headquarters in Bremen, which was completed in 2020.

In May 2010, AES acquired Schütt Elektronik GmbH, a company founded in 1995. This new branch of AES is in Hamburg, and specialises in lighting, communication and control systems for business and VIP aircrafts. It is located at the ZAL Center of Applied Aeronautical Research. The ZAL is the technological research and development network of the civil aviation industry in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region. Our Hamburg branch focuses on developing versatile, multifunctional electronics and custom solutions. Naturally, our most successful applications are eventually incorporated into our portfolio, as a serial product
AES has been involved in a wide variety of charity projects since December 2010. These focus on both regional and international organizations who help people and the environment.
In Bremen, we sponsor the REFUGIO endowment fund. In terms of international charities, we are a current member of the WWF and actively involved in the PLAN emergency response fund. Additionally, we provide help for our PLAN godchild Albertha.
A place of refuge
REFUGIO is an association providing help for refugees and victims of violence. Most of the people who come to REFUGIO Bremen have been persecuted due to their religious, political, ethnical, or sexual affiliation. Often, they arrive with immense emotional strain and distress caused by wartime experiences. In an affiliated centre for psychosocial and therapeutic treatment, REFUGIO helps traumatised people find mental balance and stability, deal with past traumatic experiences and strengthen their own resources in their own native languages. The goal is to help people find their way back to their life now, in a new, foreign society they can call home.
WWF – World Wide Fund for Nature
Preserving biological diversity – a living planet for our children and ourselves.
AES is a member of the World-Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). We support wildlife conservation projects with contributions. These projects include developing conservation areas and national parks, the training and funding of workers, as well as, protection projects for endangered species.
Enable emergency aid
The PLAN emergency response fund is responsible for immediate disaster management, medium-term reconstruction plans and long-term projects designed to prepare people in the event of a disaster. The PLAN emergency response fund provides fast, direct response that covers the immediate needs of the people concerned. This includes drinking water, food, medicine, emergency accommodations, building materials, trauma healing, and temporary school instruction. Medium-term actions include home construction, school construction and the rebuilding of infrastructure. The emergency response fund also finances surgeries for seriously ill children.
Our former godchilds Brayan and Mamawa
Our godchild Brayan lived with his mother, his brother, and grandparents in the southwest part of the Dominican Republic. His family is Catholic and speaks Spanish. Mamawa lived with her mother, a provincial woman, and sister in northern Liberia, close to the border of Guinea and Sierra Leone. Mamawa belongs to the Muslim minority and speaks English.
By supporting PLAN International Deutschland e.V. we were able to send gifts or even school materials to to our godchildren. We are glad to have improved living conditions for Brayan and Mamawa and their families. Brayan and Mamawa are now grown up.
Our godchild Albertha
As a follow-up, we are sponsoring seven-year-old Albertha from Liberia. The communities where Brayan and Mamawa lived have been able to implement some life-improving measures through Plan. We hope to support similar improvements in Albertha’s community.
Corporate Health Promotion Management
The physical integrity of AES employees is a major concern of ours. Therefore, we cooperate with the health insurance “hkk” to perform our corporate health promotion management.
The corporate health promotion management involves presentations from external speakers, anonymous employees’ surveys for analysis, planning and execution of healthcare measures as well as the assessment of the results.
We are especially happy that a strong team of 25 motivated colleagues accepted the challenge of theB2Run. The run wasestablished in 2004, a nationwide company-running event. We are proud to have such an active team.
With health promotion, we strive to create beneficial work situations and try to achieve the following objectives for our employees:
- A positive health culture
- Higher job satisfaction
- Increasing well-being at the workplace
- Preventive health measures and profound knowledge
- Helping our employees to help themselves
- A high attendance at our annual AES healthcare event
