Radar looks at production ramp-up which is what 2022 will be all about at Safran. After two years of Covid, the companies making up the Group are now gearing up to take on this industrial and human challenge. Getting the internal teams involved, recruiting people, managing relations with suppliers, creating production facilities... How is this ramp-up structured throughout the world?

In this episode, Radar takes you on a journey between France and the US!

Pierre Champtiaux, head of civil engine production at Safran Aircraft Engines in Villaroche (France) and Jake Hughes, head of production lines for Safran Landing Systems in Walton (Kentucky in the US) talks to us about ramping up production for LEAP engines and the manufacture of carbon discs, brakes and wheels.
