Figeac Aéro deploys IFS Applications for 1,200 employees

Leading aeronautical manufacturer based in France implements IFS Applications to support global growth


5 July, 2016 – IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that French aeronautical manufacturer Figeac Aéro has decided to implement IFS Applications™ 9 to replace and unify its current portfolio of business systems. The agreement includes licenses and services valued at approximately 1.5 million euros.

With a workforce of more than 1,900 employees at sites in France, the US, Mexico, Morocco, and Tunisia, Figeac Aéro is a leading aerospace manufacturer specialising in the production of light alloy and hard metal structural parts, engine parts, landing gear parts, and sub-assemblies. Figeac Aéro aims to be the number one aerospace subcontractor in Europe.

In order to support the rapid growth of its industrial footprint, the company was looking for a comprehensive enterprise software suite to replace its portfolio of legacy systems. Following a thorough evaluation process, Figeac Aéro selected IFS Applications.

The IFS solution will be used by some 1,200 employees to support mission-critical processes such as manufacturing, supply chain management, financials, quality management, and project management.

“We needed a central, integrated business system to effectively manage our rapidly growing operations,” Figeac Aéro CEO Jean-Claude Maillard said. “We chose IFS based on the solution’s comprehensive functionality and the company’s successful track record in the aerospace manufacturing sector.”

IFS France president Amor Bekrar added, “We are very pleased to welcome Figeac Aéro among our customers in the aerospace and defence space. Drawing on our long experience in this sector, we are proud to help the Figeac Aéro group consolidate its business processes and optimise its strong international growth.”
