Welcome to Space™ Community

Message from the President

François Bertrand
Président de SPACE

Two years ago, Space was facing a double challenge : implementing the “Performances industrielles” Gifas project in France and accelerating its development in Germany and Spain.
Today, we can say proudly that both objectives have been successfully met :
– 400 SMEs plus 69 primes have been involved in the Gifas project as planned ,
– 27 individual projects have been deployed in Spain, Germany and France
For the coming 2 years, we want to keep on working on these 2 objectives. In addition we are reinforcing our “Training” offer because training is a key factor in the performance of the supply chain.

We are totally committed to our goal : helping the aerospace supply chain progress towards Excellence.

All my best to you all in 2016.
François Bertrand

How SPACE™ came about?

In 2007, European aerospace prime contractors realized that our supply chain was not able to meet the new challenges of industrial excellence.

They decided to create the SPACE™ association in June 2007 to support the development of this industry.

The Mission is to conduct robust industrial improvement projects with suppliers at their sites by mutually sharing resources from the main Aerospace prime contractors (ACITURRI, AERNNOVA, AIRBUS GROUP, ALESTIS, DAHER, DASSAULT AVIATION, DIEHL, LATECOERE, LIEBHERR AEROSPACE , RATIER FIGEAC, ROCKWELL COLLINS, RUAG, SAFRAN, SONACA, THALES, ZODIAC AEROSPACE).

Since that time, SPACE™ has supported more than 600 industrial improvement projects – individual as well as collective project – and has trained more than 1500 experts on how to master the tools for effective industrial process control, in France, in Germany and in Sapin.

The initial results met our expectations; nevertheless it is necessary to continue with the process according to the challenges of the sector.

The goals of SPACE™, a professional non-profit association, are to pool its available expertise to serve the European aerospace community and tosupport all local and global projects towards industrial excellence initiatives.

Please join us so that we go forward together to develop your industrial performance and to improve our Supply Chain.

Be stronger and more competitive, become one of our members today!
