Safran Landing Systems, Walton site

Industrial site

Safran's state-of-the-art facility in Walton, Kentucky, is dedicated to the production and refurbishment of carbon brake disks, as well as the manufacturing of wheels and brakes for civil and military customers. The company's Walton plant is one of its three carbon production plants worldwide and the only one in North America. Platforms supported by this facility include Boeing's 737, 777 and 787, the Airbus A320 family, as well as C-17 and KC-135 military aircraft.

Increased production is necessary to meet growing demand for aircraft wheels and brakes in the U.S. and across North America, including customers such as UPS, FedEx, United Airlines, Allegiant, Aeromexico, Spirit Airlines, and Air Canada.

Aerospace products and parts lead Kentucky's exports by category, with Safran contributing greatly. In 2019, Kentucky exported more than $14.6 billion in aerospace products and parts, a 16.4% increase from the previous year.
