The POTEZ AÉRONAUTIQUE Group designs and manufactures aerostructures.
With more than 550 employees, we cover all the skills required to manufacture complex assemblies: design, manufacturing and industrialization engineering, project management, manufacturing of detail parts and assembly. The Group is diversifying its activities into services based on these same set of skills. In 2021, its consolidated sales amounted to EUR 51 million.
OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE IS OUR MAIN FOCUS. THAT MEANS…

CONTROLLING THE SUPPLY CHAIN
BEING CUSTOMER ORIENTED
INNOVATION IN ACTION
Our innovative attitude is based on a twin approach that facilitates continuous improvements in performance with regards to our resources and products while at the same time respecting the environment:
• Investments in Industry 4.0 with innovations in industrial processes: automation, cobotics, digital control;
• Product innovations by means of several R&T projects on composite materials and door production.
Many of our projects are supported by innovation support schemes such as the Programme d’investissements d’avenir [Future Investment Program] (PIA3), the CORAC fund (DGAC), France Relance subsidies, and Crédit d’Impôt Recherche [Research Tax Credit]. Some projects involve partnerships with public research organizations, such as Compositic, the technical platform of the Université Bretagne Sud [University of Southern Brittany].
Within the framework of these projects, we often work with students and trainees from engineering schools such as ENSAM, ESTIA, ENIT, ICAM, etc.
Digitalization is also a major priority for the company. We actively invest in the deployment of MES, PLM, paperless solutions, etc.
SITES AND PARTNERS
Innovation, high standards, know-how, customer-oriented culture, and agility – these are the values upon which our family business has been founded from the very start.
Our history is the saga of an industrial family. It was all started in 1916 by Henry Potez who was driven by a passion for aviation and the quest for excellence.
The story was continued by his grandson, Roland Potez until 2020. Antoine and Henry now continue the trajectory, resolutely turning towards the future.
