As a trusted partner, Safran Aero Boosters provides groundbreaking technologies in its fields of excellence. The ultimate goal is to create lighter, more compact low-pressure compressors with optimized aerodynamic performance.

Technological maturity for innovative and integrated solutions

Inertia friction welding

Safran Aero Boosters, which has been associated with most major aeronautical programs in recent decades, is the world leader in low-pressure compressors for commercial turbofan engines on the medium-haul market (75% market share) and long-haul market.
Through contractual partnerships with Safran Aircraft Engines, General Electric and Pratt & Whitney, Safran Aero Boosters shares both the responsibilities and risks associated with the engine programs of the future with other engine manufacturers. Low-pressure compressors are manufactured on an integrated site bringing together both engineering and manufacturing teams.
