Tier 1 customers, Tier 2 supplier
AcQ customers are primarily Tier 1 companies, thus adding to their capabilities in satisfying their requirements, which are often outside of Tier 1 core-competences.
As Tier 2 supplier, AcQ develops and produces systems such as cockpit displays, control boards, or subsystems which are part of a larger system. However, we also have the know-how and ability to develop and produce complete systems such as flight data recorders and radio altimeters.
Tier 2 customers, Tier 3 supplier
Sometimes AcQ also acts as a Tier-3 supplier.
