Visit of Turbomeca’s production site [fr]
The Ambassador Barbier visited Turbomeca’s production site on September 19th.
This visit gave the Ambassador the opportunity to learn more about this company’s activities.
The world’s leading provider of helicopter engines, Turbomeca specialises in the design, production, sale and support of low- to medium-power gas turbines for helicopters.
Turbomeca Africa (TMA), a subsidiary of the SAFRAN Group, is the South African site of Turbomeca.
Experiencing significant sales growth, TMA can be seen as an example of bilateral training, in particular through the training programs giving skilled workers from disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to develop their knowledge (long-term training in France).
Moreover, its investment in South Africa is a good way for the country to keep high level industrial capacity, the work requiring quality assurance strict procedures and very high machining qualifications.
