Grégoire METZ, appointed new general manager of  DECISION S.A.

On the eve of the new challenge, Grégoire Metz, 45, a naval engineer takes the helm of Décision S.A.

After more than 30 years of developing innovative projects in his Ecublens' workshops, Bertrand Cardis has asked to step down from the business's operational management in order to devote part of his time to new projects for Groupe Carboman.

"I asked to step down from the management of Décision in order that I might spend more time on special projects, in particular in the field of aeronautics. We worked for more than ten years in the construction of two solar planes -SOLAR IMPULSE and SOLAR IMPULSE 2- and we have developed a unique knowledge in this field. For us, it's now wise to make the most of this expertise", said Bertrand Cardis.

The former manager will remain in Groupe Carboman as both a shareholder and an administrator.

______________________________________________________________________
Décision's team is pleased and wishes to congratulate Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg for having imagined, 13 years ago, the solar power around the world flight project and for having achieved it by landing in Abu Dhabi.

A collaboration since 2003

Décision-Groupe Carboman is proud to have collaborated with Solar Impulse since the beginning of the project, in May 2003, and becoming one of the key partner. The swiss company based in Ecublens was in charge of the production of the main carbon structures for both planes, HB-SIA and then S2, especially for the wings longitudinal beams, the fuselage, the engines and the pilot cockpit support system.

Demonstrations of a carbon fibre fuselage and components for new mobility sector

The synergistic structure of Carboman enables its component companies Multiplast, Decision, and SNE-SMM to collaborate effciently with new entrants and established manufacturers. Carboman provide the perfect partner for early stage development of the design concept, prototyping and pre-series production in the aerospace composites sector.

Carbon fuselage at Multiplast

Multiplast will present its new carbon fibre fuselage for Eviation’s first all-electric regional aircraft that will debut at the show. The 9 pax Eviation Alice uses the lightest possible carbon fibre composite airframe to provide a cost-effective 650-mile range using a sustainable, low noise and zero-emission electric propulsion system.

 

Decision SA, with its history in aerospace composites having manufactured the carbon fibre structure of the Solar Impulse aircrafts HB-SIA and HB-SIB, will also launch components for several projects in the new mobility sector. These autonomous and piloted eVTOL crafts are a rapidly growing market and, with its extensive development and prototyping requirements, form a key part of the group’s future strategy. 

 

Expansions in Infrastructure

As a group, Carboman will also announce plans for expanding its production infrastructure for both aerospace tooling and components.

SNE-SMM, the Brittany-based composite tooling specialist, joined the group in late 2017. Now fully integrated into the Carboman family, SMM’s 5-axis CNC equipment that includes a massive 46mx10mx5m CMS machine and team of 35, offer tooling from ultra-large prototyping moulds to high temperature composite tools for serial production.

In addition, Decision SA will also add a new aerospace certified 2.2mx6m 250°C 10bar autoclave at its Ecublens site, significantly upscaling the size of structural components that can be produced for aerospace customers.

Our mission at Carboman has always been to develop the construction methods for tomorrow’s composite structures and we are excited to be working on so many aerospace projects now.
Combining the highest technical standards with an ultra-eff cient European infrastructure and quality standard, Carboman are perfectly placed to deliver the next generation of high-performance carbon fibre aerostructures and components” comments Dominique Dubois, CEO, Carboman Group.

We are pleased to welcome Carboman, one of the leading composite structure developers, to the global ecosystem of world-class partners that are supporting us as we bring the first all-electric zero-emission plane, Alice, to market,” comments Omer Bar-Yohay, Eviation CEO. “Our goal is to change how people move, and together with Carboman, we’re providing more than simply an environmentally-friendly, affordable way to travel – we’re designing the new era of air mobility.”

 

The full Carboman team will be available on booth H2B – B67 in Hall 2 throughout the show where visitors will experience aviation's new icon – the first fully operational Alice – in Le Bourget.
