Barely four months after signing a framework contract with Safran, LGM Ingénierie, a subsidiary of the LGM Group (a multi-sector specialist in management and engineering of large systems) starts a new project in the electronics test bench segment for the French industrial group. Its position in the test equipment market has been significantly strengthened.
LGM Ingénierie (€15m, specialist in onboard electronics and test equipment) and Safran signed a 3-year framework contract for electronic test benches at the Paris Air Show on June 19. These agreements have already enabled the Paris-based engineering company to win five contracts in just three months. The latest of these was for a test bench to validate the four ECUs in the primary electrical core of the KC390 military aircraft.
By joining the panel of companies selected by the French industrial group, LGM Ingénierie is reaping the rewards of its know-how and long experience in test facilities. It all began with RATP, fifteen years ago. Then came PSA, Thalès, Valeo... and in the early 2000s, LGM Ingénierie started out at Safran with a contract for test benches for inertial units.
Today, more than 25 % of LGM Ingénierie's sales come from the development of test equipment, mainly for rail, automotive and aerospace projects. In the short term, this contribution is set to increase. Firstly, in the aeronautics sector (+50 % in sales expected at Safran), but also thanks to our deployment in new sectors such as energy. Air Liquide was signed a little over a year ago, and discussions are underway with CEA and Schneider.
