Daher CEO Didier Kayat (right) and Patrick Daher - Board of Directors, chart the future on Tuesday, February 7 in Paris.
Daher has set out its plans for the future in a plan dubbed “Take off 2027”. The company is aiming to become a large, profitable international business developing in four complementary activities: aircraft production, manufacturing, manufacturing services and logistics.
Priorities identified are the internationalisation of its organisation, the improvement of the structural profitability of all its businesses, along with the commitment to innovate and decarbonise. Daher also has also decided to make manufacturing services a business sector in itself, alongside aircraft production, manufacturing and logistics.
Its plan identifies three challenges: Firstly, to transform the managerial culture by moving towards a results-driven culture and recognition for the core values and know-how of the group's employees.
Secondly, to innovate for customers and decarbonise by envisioning the products, services and processes of tomorrow for each of its businesses; challenges that will be the focus for the three technical centres launched by Daher in 2022.
And also to integrate and develop the acquisitions, by duplicating the TBM success story for Kodiak, while launching a hybrid aircraft; by benefitting from the Stuart factory's competence to make the assembly of aerostructures one of the pillars in Daher's manufacturing offer; by applying the KVE Composites Group's capabilities to secure Daher's technological lead in composites; and by developing the manufacturing services business with AAA (Assistance Aéronautique et Aérospatiale) after this acquisition is approved by the competent authorities.
“Our plan will accelerate and consolidate the momentum initiated in 2022. We want to assert ourselves as a key player in the aeronautics industry of tomorrow and will do everything possible to provide answers to its major challenges,” says Daher CEO Didier Kayat. “We are putting ourselves in battle order to succeed in a major transformation of the company and develop all the synergies, human, technical and technological, as well as geographical, which will make Daher a large, profitable international company for the benefit of our customers, employees and shareholders. In an environment that remains complex, all of these elements confirm our growth prospects in 2023 at a level comparable to that of 2022, with the ambition of reaching 2 billion euros in revenue during the timeframe of our new strategic plan."
In 2022, Daher recorded sales of andeuro;1.3 billion for all of its industrial and services businesses andndash; an increase of 15.4% compared to 2021. A total of 73 aircraft were delivered (compared to 68 in 2021) and a record level of orders for the TBM and Kodiak families, which were boosted by the launch of two new versions during the year; the TBM 960 and the Kodiak 900.
In terms of logistics and services, Daher's activity increased by 10.7%, with the year marked by the extension of existing contracts and the pursuit of internationalisation, with a new presence established in Germany and Spain.
