Founded in January 2009, AEROLIA is a wholly owned subsidiary of EADS. AEROLIA is supported by the strengths of the EADS group while also having the necessary autonomy for its development at the global level to meet the demand of other customers in aerostructures.

AEROLIA has 3 production sites in France and a fourth site in Tunisia. It employs more than 2,300 people and achieved a turnover of € 700M in 2009.

AEROLIA is operating in Tunisia as a wholly owned subsidiary. This site contributes to the overall competitiveness of the company by providing assembly of simple subsets and by integrating a network of local subcontractors.

The Tunisian production unit of 10,000 m² is specialized in the assembly of subsets. Its implementation represents an investment of € 30 million over 5 years.

As part of this project, AEROLIA brings together a network of partners and industrial subcontractors responsible for the realization of detail parts, sheet metal, tooling, composite, logistics as well as surface treatment.

Located close to AEROLIA within an aircraft park of 20 hectares, this network of partner companies will represent eventually 750 jobs and reduce logistics flows while contributing to a better economic performance of the formed industrial complex.
