Latécoère (Paris:LAT) (“the Company or the Group”) is a leading partner of the world’s leading aircraft manufacturers serving the aerospace industry with innovative solutions for a sustainable world.
While the aerospace industry has suffered from the impacts of the global Covid-19 pandemic, Latécoère has taken numerous measures to ensure that it can both weather the storm and emerge stronger from this crisis, including strengthening of the team, improving focus on customer needs and satisfaction, improving operational efficiency and making strategic investments, including acquisitions such as Bombardier EWIS and TAC.
