The ACTIA Group sets up a new division, ACTIA Aerospace, …

…dedicated to its Aeronautics, Space and Defence activities.
2024 is a landmark year for the ACTIA Group. This year, the Group is moving towards a new structure, with the creation of the ACTIA Aerospace Division.

2024: a new structure for the ACTIA Group

ACTIA is organised into 4 Divisions:

  • – A Mobility Division, which brings together activities related to land mobility for the commercial and industrial vehicle, light vehicle, micro-mobility and rail markets;
  • – An Energy Division dedicated to ACTIA’s expertise in the management, distribution and transport of energy, particularly electricity;
  • – An Engineering Services division to meet the growing needs of the electronics sector for engineering services, especially in the software field;
  • – An Aerospace Division, which brings together activities aimed at the aeronautics, space and defence markets.

This new structure will enable ACTIA to adapt more effectively to developments and to the requirements of the various markets in which the Group is active. It will also expand its footprint for the benefit of its various customers by applying ACTIA’s characteristic strengths of innovation, operational agility and the human dimension.

ACTIA Aerospace: a solid foothold in the aeronautics, space and defence markets

The ACTIA Group is by no means a new entrant in the aeronautics, space and defence markets.

In the aeronautics sector, ACTIA has been working with major contractors for over 25 years. The Group produces and rolls out more than 6,000 flight computers every year. ACTIA is capable of supporting its customers from design to manufacture, and has demonstrated its responsiveness to maintain Supply Chain performance – particularly during supply crises – and to guarantee certified industrial production from small to large runs. As an EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Services) partner of AIRBUS for over 25 years, ACTIA supports the aircraft manufacturer in the industrialisation, manufacture and testing of flight computers and alarms that equip its entire fleet.

The SATCOM activity, created in 1972 in Brittany and acquired by ACTIA in 1994, designs and manufactures satellite antenna signal amplifiers. This expertise in power amplifiers, going back more than 50 years, is now recognised worldwide. It has gained cutting-edge expertise in the design of satellite telecommunications stations, and in the supervision and integration of complete systems for a turnkey SATCOM offering designed for civil, military and government applications.

In the space sector, ACTIA has asserted its position as a playerin the New Space sector, by offering its expertise in the design of on-board systems and its extra high-performance industrial facility: the Colomiers site that has received the Usine Vitrine du Futur (Showcase Factory of the Future) label.ACTIA has already equipped more than 700 satellites, clocking up more than 24 million hours in orbit. The Group’s clear ambition is to offer a range of off-the-shelf products for low-Earth orbit satellite constellations.

ACTIA Aerospace: synergies that open up new prospects

The ACTIA Aerospace Division is supported by a team of more than 170 people at its sites in Toulouse – including the industrial site in Colomiers, which specialises in electronics production, and Dinard in Brittany, where power amplifiers and satellite communications stations are integrated.

“The many synergies in know-how and technologies will enable us to rapidly propel the ACTIA Aerospace Division into a new dynamic of innovation and solution offerings – both products and services – that are highly relevant to our customers. Whatever the ACTIA entity, we share a common culture that drives us towards technological and industrial excellence. This will be the foundation of ACTIA Aerospace.”
