TLD celebrates the opening of its new factory in Sorigny, France


On September 19th, 2014, TLD celebrated the opening of its third and new 6500 sqm factory in Sorigny, France. TLD built this new industrial site in order to produce the TaxiBot and cope with the increase of its aircraft tractors production.

This opening coincides with the last step of the aeronautical certification of the -“narrow body”- aircraft TaxiBot, and the beginning of the testing phase for the -“wide body”- aircraft TaxiBot.

180 guests and journalists as well as 300 TLD employees were gathered to celebrate this event. This new factory is located 20 kms from Tours, and close to the Montlouis sur Loire production site, where TLD produces its conventional and towbarless aircraft tractors ranges.

The building has a total surface of 6500 sqm including 5000 sqm of industrial buildings and 1500 sqm of offices.

TLD plans to double the surface of the factory by 2016 to keep up with the development of the TaxiBot project, as well as the increasing deliveries of its aircraft tractors, in an optimal environment in terms of quality and safety.
