Safran continues to expand its industrial presence in North America, with the construction of new production units, joint ventures and subsidiaries, and through the acquisition of local companies. Clearly indicating our strong long-term commitment, the Group’s expanding presence in this region is characterized by earning a closer contact with its local customers.
