Daher takes manufacturing services business AAA onboard
Thursday, 13 July 2023
The company will provide industrial services to enable its customers to meet production commitments in the current context of limited resources and the restructuring of the global aerospace supply chain.

Daher has acquired France's AAA (Assistance Aéronautique et Aérospatiale), adding 2,000 employees and annual revenue of approximately 200 million euros.

AAA provides solutions that complement those of Daher, such as the assembly and installation of aerostructures, systems and engines; flight line services; maintenance; and industrialisation and quality support.

Benefitting from its business model based on four highly complementary activities - aircraft manufacturing, manufacturing, manufacturing services, and logistics - the combined group says it is capable of supporting its customers with end-to-end capabilities, not only in the regions of aerospace industry concentration where the company is already present, but in new regions of France and abroad.

The overall management of AAA is entrusted to Daher's Cédric Eloy as the CEO, assisted by Deputy General Manager Sylvain Ruellé, who also is a Daher employee.

Didier Kayat, the CEO of Daher says: “The acquisition of AAA was obvious for us, as the DNA of these two family companies is so similar. We share values based on entrepreneurship, agility and the value of our employees, which are guarantees for the success of this merger. The development of industrial services is perfectly aligned with Daher's desire to provide ever-better support to our customers in the complex context that industry faces today. This is a key step in enabling us to achieve the ambitious objectives of our 'Take off 2027' strategic plan, as it enables us to strengthen the presence with our customers, as well as internationally.”

Eloy adds: “I am very proud to take the reins of AAA and what it represents. My goal is to develop a robust operation by building on the foundation provided by AAA and the key attributes that have made it strong andndash; namely its agility in responding to the challenges of customers and employees. We have big ambitions for this activity, particularly with the opportunity to significantly increase international revenue. I am convinced that our industrial services offer is one of the strengths that will enable our customers to meet their production commitments in the current context of limited resources and the restructuring of the global aerospace supply chain.”
