The Latecoere group and its 5,000 employees are located in 13 countries. Since the appearance of COVID-19, a prevention plan has been deployed within the group to anticipate the development of the virus and protect employees. It evolves every day and adapts to the evolution of the situation in each geographical area, following the advice of WHO and the directives of the national authorities.
Initially, the temporary closure of production sites enabled the operational deployment of appropriate prevention and protection measures. At the same time, telework has been generalized where possible.
Today, our production plan is evolving in order to follow the rate adjustments communicated by our customers. This results in reduced activity and the temporary closure of some of our factories in France and abroad during April.
The group is also in close contact with GIFAS (French Aerospace Industries Association) to coordinate the action of all players of the sector. Mobilization is total so that the economic continuity of our strategic sector is guaranteed in exemplary health conditions, in accordance with the will of the government.
Finally, we would like to highlight the exceptional commitment of the Latecoere teams, who provide support to customers and who demonstrate total support for caregivers through the implementation of solidarity initiatives.
