Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS develops, supplies and services innovative air management systems for the aerospace industry. The company can look back over 60 years of experience in aeronautical engineering and is represented in Southern France today at two locations: The headquarters are in Toulouse. Parts of the production are externalized to the Campsas location 50 kilometers away.

New research and test center

Research and development are key to continuous innovation. In 2011, new air system testing facilities were opened in Toulouse. The test center is a powerful research and development tool, equipped with state-of-the-art vibration test rigs, a noise optimization anechoic chamber and altitude chambers of various sizes. Here, air management test rigs allow to perform elaborate tests of complete aircraft air systems, including systems on board of future more electric aircrafts.

In addition, a high-power hydrogen test bench is connected to the electrical system test rig since mid-2021. This essential infrastructure will support the development of fuel cell based power generation systems for "heavy" mobility applications.

Partner to aviation research

Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS is an active partner to the Clean Sky 2 aviation research program. The project aims to further reduce the effects of aviation on the environment and to increase Europe's global competitiveness. Some innovative concepts as electrical-driven air conditioning system are developed to pave the way for a greener aviation. The program will run up to 2024 and contains various research and development projects that will benefit the next generation of aircraft.

Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS: a responsible company

Responsibility is a guiding principle of Liebherr that includes the protection of women, men and the environment for the conduct of all the company's activities. Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS is committed to guarantee the health and safety of its employees, to develop more responsible management of its facilities, to produce and maintain its products while meeting and even exceeding the requirements of sustainable development.

Improve environmental performance

Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS is ISO 14001 certified since 2007. This certification attests the continuous improvement approach led by the company to improve its environmental performance.

In order to address its major challenges, the company has been integrating for many years the development of more environmentally friendly technologies into its R&T activities.

An eco-design approach was also initiated and implemented into several R&T projects. This approach is aimed at being widely used to support the environmental performance of the company.

Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS has regularly carried out its Greenhouse Gas Emissions Assessment, which was followed by actions in order to reduce these emissions. The latest report published in 2019 shows an emission of 2263 Tons of CO2 in 2018, a general trend of 34% decrease in emissions (scope 1 and 2) in comparison with 2014 in a context of growth (+145 employees from 2014 to 2018 and +20% of turnover between 2014 and 2018). To strengthen its approach, the company is committed to assessing its indirect emissions (scope 3) for all its activities.

Social commitment

On the social plan, the company has started implementing a deep social transformation in order to put its employees at the center of its concerns. Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS also employs prisoners in a penitentiary center and contributes to their reintegration.

What about tomorrow?

Sustainable development is an essential stake for Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse. That is why the company has launched a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach supported by the Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS and the Liebherr Group.

The main pillars are:

  • Contribute to decarbonization in the activities linked to aerospace or other applications, by acting on energy consumption, and developing innovative technologies and products more respectful of the environment.
  • Control hazardous substances, in particular those covered by the REACH regulation.
  • Reduce and recycle waste, with a specific focus on rehabilitated parts.
  • Preserve biodiversity and natural resources, in particular by optimizing water consumption.
