Managed since 2005 by Thierry Haure Mirande, AÉROPROTEC specializes in the surface treatment of metal parts for the aeronautical industry. With a know-how on very complex parts recognized on a national and international scale, the SME works with the sector’s major players: Airbus, Safran, Embaer and Dassault. Present in France in Pau, and very soon in Sauvagnon, and with offices in Tunisia through its affiliate AÉROTECH, the group’s development is anchored in sustained technological intelligence. One of its main challenges is to respond to the radical changes in surface treatment processes imposed by the European REACH directive. Its strategy for innovation, performance, quality and reducing the manufacturing cycle time is also consistent with the globalization of the aeronautical sector.
