About us

The RAFAUT group has been involved for over 50 years in aerospace and weaponry either as an equipment supplier to French Ministry of Defense and as a supplier to the civilian aeronautics major primes. Founded in early 1940 as a mechanics subcontractor, the Company was taken over in 1960 by Jacques Rafaut from his father who leaded it toward aeronautics.

As a Defense equipment supplier, the RAFAUT group is specialized in carriage and release systems, warheads and external Fuel tanks.

RAFAUT runs an in house dedicated design office, which expertise is focused on aerostructural systems that need complex kinematics working in high constraints environments. For civilian aerospace, RAFAUT manufactures flight controls and complex assemblies for civilian aeronautics major primes.

Subsidiary of Rafaut group since March 2021, LACE, with over 60 years of experience, designs, qualifies, industrializes, produces, sells and repairs products mainly used for helicopter load carrying. LACE has strong presence on the European market and present worldwide, its main customers are Airbus Helicopters, Bell Textron, Sikorsky and many helicopter operators around the world.

LACE adapts to its customers on the civil and military markets which makes it one of Rafaut major strengths. The main goal of LACE is to reduce its cycle times and offer different solutions adapted to the needs of our customers in order to overcome their emergencies.
