With a total investment of more than EUR100 million, the new Paris-Le Bourget site was designed as a model for modern and digitalised production. The use of automation will play a major role in how the site functions.
The transfer of Airbus’ La Courneuve activities to Paris-Le Bourget represents a transformation project that affects the site’s organisation of work, industrial processes, and ultimately, the company’s competitiveness. Airbus Helicopters aims to reduce production costs and manufacturing cycles for helicopters. Over time, Paris-Le Bourget is said to design and manufacture all Airbus helicopter blades.
