LATECOERE - Méaulte - St. Nazaire ville merger
Within the scope of the "Power 8" plan launched by Airbus, the LATECOERE group bid to take over the Méaulte and Saint Nazaire ville sites. A proposal has just been finalised.
The new Group thus established would rank in the worldwide top 6, with revenue greater than 1 billion euros, as of 2008:
- European leader for Aerostructures (European leader for nose sections and world leader for doors).
- Ranked 2nd in the world for onboard wiring (world leader for avionics bays).
The outlook for the group is one of significant growth with, in the short-term, the launch of Airbus A350XWB, and in the medium-term, the launch of Airbus 320's and Boeing's 737 replacements.
The Latécoère - Méaulte - St. Nazaire ville merger consolidates the future of the aerostructure industry in France.
A capital increase is being prepared. The description of the operation will be communicated during the second half-year and to be finalised at the end of the year.
