Additional Information

The management of Famat (Fabrications Mécaniques de l'Atlantique), an aeronautical subcontractor specialised in the manufacture of parts for aircraft engines, has announced that around a hundred employees who will retire between the end of 2020 and the end of 2022 will not be replaced. The company currently has 380 employees for a turnover of €125 million in 2018.  The Famat was selected in the call for projects launched as part of the State financed aeronautical recovery plan. It will receive €1.042 million in support. Highly impacted by the consequences of the COVID-19 health crisis, the Famat is calling for long-term short-time working for some of its employees.
