Our expertise in Aerospace & Defence Industry

Capitalising on its extensive experience in the Aerospace & Defence Industry, Mazars has developed specific skills and tailor-made solutions to help companies to improve their performance and attain their goals.

The expansion of international tourism, which is doubling every 15 years, and increasing standards of living across the world are driving the steady growth in the global Aerospace & Defence Industry. In this context of massive aircraft orders and fierce competition in an ever more globalised market continually buffeted by evolutions in the euro/dollar parity and industry consolidation, Aerospace & Defence companies are experiencing mounting pressures to deliver a better quality product at lower cost and on increasingly tight schedules. To meet those challenges, Aerospace & Defence companies must rethink their organisation while also securing their supply chain in order to become more efficient and cost effective.
