Record Number of Exhibitors on French Pavilion at Singapore Airshow 2016

At the Singapore Airshow due to take place next week from 16 - 21 February, the French aerospace industry association Gifas will host almost 60 French companies presenting their expertise and products in the French Pavilion.

Never before have so many companies participated in the French Pavilion at an airshow outside France.

The exhibitors include prime contractors, equipment manufacturers, SMEs and maintenance specialists.

The Singapore Airshow is the leading aviation event in South-East Asia. This year, France is the feature country, an accolade which few countries are eligible for. I am particularly proud to help boost the influence of French industry by bringing a delegation of more than sixty small, medium and intermediate-sized enterprises, said Marwan Lahoud, Chairman of GIFAS.

The fact that the French aerospace industry is so well represented is evidence of the strong ties between Singapore and France, as well as the massive business opportunities that the Asia Pacific region represents.

More than 2,000 employees work for subsidiaries of French aerospace companies in Singapore, a city which has established itself as a leading aerospace maintenance and repair centre in Asia and a key industrial hub. The French aerospace industry is a key partner, and both countries have innovation as their primary motivation.

The following companies supported by Gifas will be at the French Pavilion for the 2016 Singapore Air Show: AAA Dornier, ABC, A-NSE, Air Cost Control, Air France Industries, Air Liquide, Alkan, Arv (Alpha-Num), Aquarese, Aubert & Duval, BeAM, Bollor Logistics, Climats, CNES, Daher, DCI, Dedienne Aerospace, Defi Group, Eca/Esfe, Exxelia, Factem, Finaero, FSH Welding, GMI Aero, Hexcel, Jacques Dubois, Lacroix, Latcore, Lmb, Mapaero, Nexeya, Nicomatic, Nyco, Price Induction, Paris Saint-Denis Aro, Rafaut, Revima, Sabena technics, Safran, Secamic, Socomore, Sophia Conseil, Spring Technologies, Stelia Aerospace, Techman-Head, Titeflex, Tld Asia, Toulouse Air Spares, Trescal, Trigo, UUDS, Win MS and Zodiac Aerospace.
