Safran, the human and industrial story – Safran Helicopter Engines


This movie is about the rise and development of Safran Helicopter Engines (Turbomeca at the time), the leading manufacturer of helicopter turbine engines. It takes a specific look at: the company’s foundation by Polish engineer Joseph Szydlowski, its Bordes site in Pyrénées-Atlantiques, its global reach, and the creation of its ultra-modern industrial site, France’s answer to the plant of the future. This movie puts Safran’s history and values center stage. Enjoy taking a closer look at Safran Helicopter Engines history and the enthusiasm of those who have helped to write it and, indeed, those who are still in the process of writing it today.
