History[edit] SOGERMA[edit] SOGERMA (SOciété Girondine d'Entretien et de Réparation d'Militaires Avions ) was a French company founded in 1924 with its origins in the early days of aviation.[1] Until a restructure in 2006, the company undertook MRO activities; after this the company further developed its aerostructures and seats business.[citation needed] AEROLIA[edit] AEROLIA SA was founded on 1 January 2009, as a spin-off of Airbus France's aerostructures activities. This involved the Méaulte and Saint-Nazaire industrial plants, with a part of Toulouse
design office.[citation needed] This outsourcing operation was part of Airbus global strategy to focus its activities on its core business, involving several other Airbus
spin-offs (selling-off the Filton (UK) site component manufacturing activities to GKN, and the creation of Premium Aerotec
Premium Aerotec
in Germany).[citation needed] Merger[edit] Stelia Aerospace
