Heritage

The Safran Heritage Center is responsible for the conservation, management, communication and promotion of heritage documents belonging to Safran. Created on July 1 2006, this center is a reflection of Safran’s desire to conserve, communicate and share its history, built on passion and innovation over more than a century.

  • Create and implement projects to promote and disseminate the Group’s heritage internally.
  • Advise internal and external visitors as well as Safran Museum on research requests and simplify visitor access to the heritage collections.
