Flying has made the world smaller and has become so ubiquitous that we started to take it for granted. We often forget that we are able to fly wherever we want thanks to the work and innovation of the aviation and aeronautics industry, like Latécoère, a French group.

With more than 100 years of experience in the aeronautics industry, Latécoère is a leader in the field of aerostructures and interconnection systems. It is the world leader in Avionics Racks, the European leader in satellite wiring, the world’s leading independent manufacturer of aircraft doors and is second in the world for electrical harnesses. A major player in the aeronautics industry, Latécoère Group stands out for its ability to innovate. Drawing on its unique and world-recognized expertise, Latécoère works across the entire value chain. Design, manufacturing, assembly, installation and MRO: Latécoère aims for excellence and performance across the board.

The factory in Plovdiv was opened in 2018, as a part of the company's Aerostructures division, to reinforce Latécoère's ties with Airbus programs. The plant had a production floor of nearly 5,000 sq m. Initially, it employed 200 people. As soon as 2019 the company had to expand its premises and to hire more workers to perform a new task for Latécoère: assembly of metal components for the nose fairing of Airbus А350.

Pierre-Yves Mourcet, General Manager of Latécoère in Bulgaria shares more.

Please, tell us more about the presence of Latécoère in Bulgaria?

Latécoère in Bulgaria was officially opened in September 2018. Redirects have made it possible to redistribute production worldwide between European plants by automating what can be done, and to countries with the lowest cost, where basic manual processes are possible thanks to a well-skilled workforce.

What brought the company to Bulgaria? What are the company's goals here?

Latécoère has brought in Bulgaria the specifics of the aviation sector, improving and standardizing the production lead time to attempt the dead point of the program to obtain saving on the unit recurring cost.

What has Latécoère achieved so far in Bulgaria?

Up to now Latécoère Bulgaria has integrated production line for installation of doors for Airbus A320, racks for Airbus A350 and A400M and fuselage for Airbus A350 Nose Fairing as well.

What are the main challenges that Latécoère faces in Bulgaria?

The main challenge that Latécoère faces in Bulgaria is to put the industrial means at the level expected by our customers and to be prepared for the next generation of the new aircrafts.

What new products and ideas does the company plan for the future?

Latécoère is committed to improving these means of production by linking design to R&D projects, always in order to be ready and connected to our future customers' new requirements.
