WeAre Group and NOVAE Aerospace announce the signature of a partnership agreement aimed at furthering their international development. This innovative offer will take shape this year through the creation of WeAre India, in Nagpur, and Novae India, and the establishment of an Industry Park and a Service Park, planned for November 2019.

The WeAre Group and NOVAE Aerospace management teams have signed a memorandum of understanding formalizing both groups’ ambition to seek mutual synergies between their international initiatives.

The agreement will lead to sharing of commercial information and pooling of operational resources (sites, teams, networks, know-how, etc.). It reflects WeAre Group’s determination to accelerate its international expansion and forge strategic partnerships to foster the establishment of new sites, and NOVAE Aerospace’s desire to pursue the export development of its industrial and service offer. This agreement is initially being implemented this year through the creation of WeAre India, a structure set up to forge partnerships with Indian companies and target the aviation, defense and space markets.

WeAre India plans to open an Industry Park for its lathing, milling and panelwork activities by the end of 2019, and is studying the feasibility of establishing a second focus of activity dedicated to special
processes (NDT, surface treatment and painting).
NOVAE India will initially work in the country on developing its offers in Technical Assistance to Project Owners, Industrial Transfers and the related Technical Training, as well as on seeking commercial opportunities
for its product and equipment maintenance and repair activities.

The signature of this agreement with WeAre Group confirms the NOVAE Aerospace Group’s strategy of building strong, meaningful partnerships with leading aeronautical mid-caps, supporting its clients in their international development and growing its own business outside France.
Sébastien TAVEAU, CEO of NOVAE


The signature of the WeAre/NOVAE agreement and the announcement of the creation of WeAre India demonstrate WeAre Group’s determination to pursue its international development both to support its strategic clients and promote its diversification strategy.
