The Airbus Saint-Eloi site is specialized in the design,
manufacturing, assembly, equipping and testing of engine
pylons and design and manufacturing of titanium nacelle
parts for all the aircraft in the Airbus family.
Featuring the latest efficient ‘moving-line’
lean-production concept, the facility is also the
leading European centre for hard metals machining and
transformation, including titanium.
The A320neo ‘new engine option’ for the A320 Family
will enter into service from late 2015. It
incorporates latest generation engines and large
Sharklet wing-tip devices, which together with the
new engines will deliver a significant fuel savings.
With more than 1,400 firm orders since its launch in
2010, the A320neo Family has proven to be the
fastest selling commercial aircraft program ever.
