Vendôme site marks 50 years of expertise

Established in 1965, the Thales site in Vendôme in Central France produces more than 45,000 avionics products and 31,000 spare parts every year for 250 customers around the world.

Since 2010, the site has been the mainstay of Thales’s low-volume and multi-unit avionics manufacturing capability, drawing on specialised expertise in a broad range of disciplines and recognised proficiency in advanced electronic, optical and micro-mechanical technologies.

The products manufactured at Vendôme include the Integrated Electronic Standby Instrument (IESI), which provides attitude, altitude and airspeed indications in a single unit, the Flight Control Unit (FCU), engine control instruments, Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS) as well as certain display systems. Close to 700,000 of the instruments currently in service were made in Vendôme.
