The first contract of Maintenance in Operational Condition
Turgis et Gaillard begin to make periodic visits of Twin Otter’s French Air and Space Force, as a subcontractor of Inéo, who win the contract. The group founded in 2011 by Fanny Turgis and Patrick Gaillard has achieved its first major reference in the field of aeronautical MOC, a field in which it has solid ambitions. One project has been completed at a PPA air base, and another is underway at a new production site recently purchased by Turgis and Gaillard. The French Air Force and Space Agency owns five Twin Otters. The service was previously provided by Hop, in Brittany.
A design office: AAROK
This new reference marks the growth of the Turgis et Gaillard group, which now has 260 employees and a turnover of 40 million euros. Its activity covers both MOC, production and development of new equipment. Its AAROK design office has developed several audacious concepts, for carrying bombs on transport aircraft, transforming ground-to-air missiles into ground-to-ground munitions or even a concept for commando boats. The group produced a prototype of a renovated VBRG armoured vehicle for the gendarmerie at a controlled cost.
A bomb carrier for the Dassault Rafale
The group also received the Minister of the Armed Forces at its new Sefiam factory in Lozère. Florence Parly came to greet one of the new products, the Sefiam 1602 trolley, a bomb carrier designed in particular for the Rafale. The machine will complete its qualification period by the end of the year. The company also manufactures structural components for the ATL2, elements for Safran Electronics & Defense, notably missile homing devices. In five years, Sefiam alone has doubled its turnover (to 5 million euros) and its workforce (around forty people). Despite its small size, Turgis & Gaillard did not hesitate to follow Dassault Aviation to India, in the framework of the "Make in India" initiative, by opening a site there.
