Latécoère starts its second centenary with an industrial tool and an organization allowing it to position on future platforms and other workpackages re-sourcing. Surrounded by Brazilian customers and partners, Yannick Assouad, CEO Latécoère, shared her new ambitions in a meeting in Jacarei on the 28th February 2018. Multi-client platform, integrated international network drawing on proximity sites, engineering, worldwide leader (n°1 doors and avionic racks, n°2 harnesses): Latécoère is spreading its wings and wants the world to know.
Ozires Silva, founder of Embraer, addressed this message to the audience:
“Nowadays, the Latécoère is the main supplier of the largest companies in the world: Boeing, Airbus, our competitor Bombardier, and our Embraer […]. Perhaps, passenger do not know that they are flying in airplanes with Latécoère products, but we know it and we are sure that we are receiving a first-class product.”
Aerospace teams also celebrated the triple certification granted to Embraer’s E190-E2 on the very same day. Latécoère’s Aerostructures division produces the aircraft’s OWE door in Brazil. Innovative and safe, it remains anchored to the fuselage in case of emergency. As for the Interconnection Systems division, it manufactures EWIS harnesses for Novaer, the amazing aircraft manufacturer that developed the flying prototype of Calidus B-250 turboproped, 100% carbon in only 25 months.
As Yannick Assouad underlined regarding teamwork among partners:
“Connecting people is what aviation still does today. Our customers, the airplane manufacturers, and our group contribute to this great mission.”
