In order to accelerate the transformation of French Industry particularly impacted by COVID crisis, the French Government is providing aid for investments towards the industry of the future. This programme, named “France Relance” contributes to the spread of digital technology and the adoption of new solutions from the 4.0 industrial revolution. Gardner Aerospace Mazères was selected as part of this plan and was granted an €847,000 contribution to achieve key investments in machining, 2D laser, 3D printing / Additive Manufacturing.

Thanks to BPI France and France Relance, our Mazères site has acquired these new industrial resources:

Mazak 3-Axis Machining Centre
Mazak 5-axis Machining centre
Nakamura Milling Tourer
Conventional Tour
Conventional milling machine

This machinery is the first part of Gardner Aerospace Mazères transformation plan – Ambition 2022. The first step in this big project will help us strengthen our position with our customers and accelerate our diversification process, with a Fortus 400mc 3D Printing machine also being installed soon.

These new machines will help to increase industrial capabilities, reduce industrial lead time, diversify production to new markets and increase global performance.

With these new machines also comes two new staff members, a Programmer/Machinist and an apprentice Engineer.

To showcase our new capabilities, Gardner Aerospace Mazeres invited along Director Sophie Morel and Project Manager Marie-Margaux Honikman from ADS Toulouse.
