Sogeclair : 2017 turnover

Blagnac, France, February 07th 2018-5.45pm,
Montreal, Canada

UP BY 7.9% to 147.3M€

SOGECLAIR, the designer of innovative high added-value solutions and products for the aerospace and transport sectors, today reports its 2017 turnover, with an organic growth of 7.9% that reaches the average growth of the last years after a 6.9% progression in 2016.

The activity's development in 2017 is all the more important as the year had a decrease of 2 working days compared to 2016, a negative dollar effect, as well as a delay in the implementation of PrintSky, subsidiary dedicated to additive manufacturing for aerospace and defence (ongoing consultation of the Competition Authority).

The growing business for the 3 divisions records several strategic stages:

  • The Products business, which turns the 50M€ mark (+ 18.5%) and,
  • The international market, which oversteps 80M€ (approximately +10%) with a strong increase in America

            (+ 48%) which reaches 22% of the turnover

The Aerospace division grew by 5.6% to 127.7M€ through to the good performance of activities related to business aviation and Products activities.

The Simulation division, grew by 13.2% at 15.9M€, recorded a dynamic year with the creation of AVS (owned 65% by SOGECLAIR and 35% by RENAULT) dedicated to the autonomous vehicle simulation.

The Vehicle division is experiencing a real rally with +141.2% to 3.7M€ driven by export and defence contracts.

Overall, development activities decreased to 23% of the turnover (-2.9%), while production support grew to 42% of the turnover (+6.8%), and Products reached 34% of the turnover.

SOGECLAIR is prepared for the pursuit of its 2018 growth through the creation of new subsidiaries (AVS and PrintSky), the production activities start-up in the USA, management and tools strengthening (with an ongoing implementation of an ERP), as well as the commercial dynamic.
