About the Group

A key aerospace player With strong positions

As a “Tier 1” international partner of the world’s major aircraft manufacturers (Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Dassault, Embraer, etc.), Latecoere serves aerospace with innovative solutions for a sustainable world.

The Group is active in all segments of the aeronautics industry (commercial, regional, business and military aircraft), in two areas of activity:
• Aerostructures (46% of turnover): aircraft doors (worldwide independent leader) and fuselage sections,
• Interconnection Systems (54% of turnover): wiring (#2 worldwide for aeronautics, #1 in Europe for space), avionic racks (#1 worldwide) and on-board equipment.

On December 31, 2021, the Group employed 4,764 people in 14 different countries.

A major player in the aeronautics industry, the Group stands out for its ability to innovate. Drawing on its unique and world-recognised expertise, Latecoere works throughout the entire value chain. Design, manufacturing, assembly, installation and MRO: Latecoere aims for excellence and performance across the board.

 

A partner of choice Involved in all major programmes

As an international leader in its industry, Latecoere supports prestigious customers with the development of major aeronautics programmes.

For example, we manufacture doors for the A320, as well for the 787 and the 777F. Our racks and harnesses equip the A320, A350 and A400M. Our solutions have proved their value, which is why we regularly win new contracts with both major OEMs and disruptive players.

Expertise and quality For our customers

To ensure quality and deadlines throughout the logistics chain, the Group deploys a quality management system compliant with ISO 9001 and EN 9100 certifications for all its activities. This promotes continuous improvement at Latecoere and encourages employees to feel involved in the Group’s success.

Thanks to its Production and Maintenance approvals, Latecoere can also release products with the relevant Part21G or Part145 Authorized Release Certificates as required by its customers.

 

At the end of 2016, Latecoere announced that its Design Organisation Approval (DOA) extension had been granted by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) within the framework of expanding the scope of its activities.

The extension applies to minor modifications, major modifications (STC: Supplemental Type Certificate), and aircraft repairs (“large aircraft”). It therefore includes electrical systems, avionic systems, structures, doors and hydromechanical systems.

The Design Organisation Approval is official recognition of the Group’s technical expertise and know-how in embedded systems integration. In practice, it means that the Latecoere Group can integrate embedded equipment (Cockpit Door Surveillance Systems, Landscape Camera Systems, etc.) and thus provide its customers with all-inclusive solutions.
