Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse, headquartered in Toulouse, France, has announced that it is pursuing its industrial development in the Occitanie region with the investment of almost €30 million and construction of a 12,000 m² building on its Campsas site in the Tarn-et-Garonne, doubling the site’s area.

The new facility is located close to the current plant, which specialises in the machining of high-precision mechanical parts, including turbine and compressor wheels and high-temperature valve bodies which are integrated in bleed air and air-conditioning systems. The current Campsas plant employs 200 people and is equipped with state-of-the-art machining centres and Additive Manufacturing machines.

The new building is said to be low-energy and will be dedicated to the production of heat exchangers, key components in aircraft air-conditioning systems, which is currently carried out at the Toulouse site. This reportedly eco-responsible building is also anticipated to be the company’s Industry 4.0 showcase, featuring state-of-the-art production technologies and industrial processes.

A detailed design phase has reportedly been underway since the beginning of 2022 to define the building and its location on the site, in line with environmental regulations. Construction of the building is due to start in September 2023, with commissioning scheduled for 2025 to enable the gradual installation of manufacturing processes.

The project includes a social component designed to support employees whose jobs will be transferred from the Toulouse site to the Campsas site which will eventually employ 400 people. The area freed up by the relocation of the heat exchanger production activity will enable a significant increase in industrial capacity for the assembly and maintenance of other equipment for air systems.
