PILOT 28: Figeac Aéro wins another two contracts
Monday, 10 June 2024

Figeac Aéro, a leading partner for major aerospace manufacturers, today announces that it has signed two new contracts worth a total of around €90 million to produce single-aisle commercial aircraft parts.

Thomas Girard, Figeac Aéro’s Chief Operating Officer, made the following statement: “We are very pleased to have been awarded these two new contracts. They further reinforce our position on commercial aircraft programmes that are spearheading efforts to upgrade single-aisle fleets to more fuel -efficient aircraft. These latest agreements are fully in line with the targets set out under our PILOT 28 strategic plan and provide yet more evidence of our ability to reconcile a competitive offering with financial performance”.

Agreements Stemming From Long-Term Partnerships

The two contracts cover a large selection of titanium and aluminium parts alike, destined to the recent Airbus A220 and Boeing 737 MAX single-aisle programmes. They cover the whole spectrum of the Group’s activities and will make use of several of its major sites, both in France and overseas. The contracts will also rely on dedicated production flows and optimized logistics thanks to very close proximity with the customers. They therefore demonstrate just how competitive Figeac Aéro’s industrial setup is.

The contracts also stem from long-term partnerships built up with major firms in the global commercial aerospace sector. They consist of a combination of contract extension, market share increase as well as new part numbers outsourced by the customer for the first time.

Optimal Performance On Both The Industrial And Financial Fronts

Production under these two contracts will run until 2032 and ramp ups are scheduled in the second half of 2024 and in 2026, respectively.

A dedicated workshop organised into production islands will optimise productivity, direct costs and working capital, and the Group will benefit from a combination of know-how and immediate proximity with the customer, allowing an efficient scaled-for-growth industrial setup while optimising its use of resources. Figeac Aéro is once again showcasing its ability to make its offering ever more competitive while at the same time optimising its financial performance, all the while meeting each of the financial criteria set by the Group.

The two contracts combined are worth a total of around €90 million, of which some €40 million pertaining to new part numbers, contract extensions and expansions of allocated market shares.

Another Major Step Closer To The Targets Set Out Under PILOT 28

The two agreements should generate annual revenue of around €6 million by 2028, so the Group is taking a major step forward in the growth trajectory set out under its PILOT 28 plan. Factoring in all the contracts it has recently won in the commercial aerospace segment, the Group has thus already secured close to 15% of its full-year new business revenue target of €80-100 million out to 2028.
