Paris-based Latecoere has set up a manufacturing plant in Belagavi in Karnataka.
The French company manufactures aerostructures such as fuselage sections and doors, and interconnection systems, including onboard wiring, electrical harnesses, and avionics bays for major international aircraft manufacturers.
The 4,400-sq.m plant would initially manufacture radio navigation harnesses for Falcon 2000. Going forward, it would also manufacture harnesses and avionics harnesses for aircraft such as Boeing B777, B737, and Airbus A320 and for airlines such as Emirates, British Airways, and Qatar Airways.
“I am proud to open a new chapter for Latecoere’s development in India, alongside two prestigious names in aerospace, Dassault Aviation and Thales. Latecoere continues to evolve in line with the ‘Transformation 2020’ plan and actively pursue its strategy to optimise its industrial infrastructure and ensure operational excellence and quality for all customers,” said Yannick Assouad, CEO of Latecoer.
