At Toulouse, as well as the engineering and support activities and customer services, the site is particularly dedicated to the physical integration of the nacelle with the engine for the A330, A380, F7X, A320neo and Silvercrest nacelles. Safran Nacelles Toulouse assembles all the nacelle components, carries out the paint work in the contracting airline company colours and performs the last adjustments between the nacelle, engine and pylon by which it is connected underwing. Its geographical proximity with Airbus (Toulouse, France) and Dassault Aviation (Mérignac, France) means that it can provide final assembly line support and welcome customer airline companies which come to accept their aircraft with its nacelles. The 54,000 m2 Safran Nacelles site at Toulouse employing 260 men and women, is devoted to the integration of the nacelle system with the propulsion system.

Safran Nacelles Florange


Extensive know how

Since its creation in 1979, Safran Nacelles's site in Florange has established itself as the specialist in complex metal and composite aerostructures for airplanes and helicopters. From design to support in service – along with industrialization, manufacturing and assembly – the Florange factory deploys a modular offer, adapted to the needs of its customers.

Strong added value

Forty years of experience in the development of aerostructures has given a unique ability to offer its customers the best compromise between metallic and composite structures, in terms of design as well as assembly. This expertise enables it to design products meeting the most demanding standards in terms of performance, regulations, weight and cost.

Diversified portfolio

Its activity focuses on three large product families:

  • parts located in the engine environment: helicopter cowlings, engine and nacelle parts, etc.
  • equipment and cockpits: cockpit console structures, equipment bays
  • moving parts: landing gear doors, thrust reverser parts, etc.

Fully-mastered technologies

In addition to its expertise in development, our Florange site controls the entire manufacturing chain for composite materials, from the supply of raw materials to the finished part, including lay-up, trimming, non-destructive testing, paint and assembly.

Effective industrial tools

Significant investments have been made to support the growth of the Florange factory activities: laser projection equipment for the lay-up of composite materials, large autoclaves, lay-up room for bismaleimide (high-strength and high-temperature performance) materials, drilling robots for acoustic treatment, machining and forming means for honeycomb, etc.
