PARIS, March 10 (Reuters) - European aerospace and defence group EADS (EAD.PA: Quote) and its Airbus planemaking unit have signed a deal with China's Southwest Aluminium (SWA) for the supply of aluminium plate, EADS said on Thursday.

"SWA's aluminium products will initially supply both Airbus' single-aisle and long-range families, and the contract could be extended to other programmes in the future," EADS said in a statement.

Aluminium is a key component in aircraft production, used in many different parts of a plane such as fuselage panels and frames, floor beams and wing spars/ribs. The move will help EADS and Airbus move a step closer to sourcing new qualified suppliers in emerging regions, EADS added.
