10-year anniversary for Sabena Technics in Bordeaux


Sabena Technics is celebrating its acquisition 10 years ago of the EADS Sogerma site in Bordeaux, France. The site’s successes include obtaining A380, B777 and A350 rating approvals; investment in the workshops; and the development of new component capabilities, services and products.

Today, the Bordeaux facility has maintenance capabilities covering most Airbus and Boeing types as well as military aircraft including the C-130. Its airframe maintenance activities are carried out within six hangars, which extend over 100,000m². Component overhaul and repair services are provided by workshops specialized in avionics, electromechanics, mechanics, hydraulics, helicopter landing gear, air conditioning and fuel. All of these operational activities are supported by the company’s own backshops, including sheet metal working, machining, surface treatment workshops and painting.

The site also provides a broad range of modification solutions thanks to its Part 21J and Part 21G approved design organization as well as training and technical certifications on all types of Airbus aircraft.
