COLUMBIA, S.C. Safran -- a leading provider of systems and equipment for aircraft, including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner -- has expanded its Charleston County footprint by constructing a new facility adjacent to its existing operations. This $7 million expansion is expected to create 15 new jobs.
 
Operating in the Charleston area since 2008, Safran is the provider of landing and braking systems, propulsion components, electrical wiring and electronics and engineering services for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Safran is the worldwide leader in wiring solutions and landing and braking systems and ranked second worldwide in electrical power generation for aircraft.
 
Located in Suite 107 of 8351 Palmetto Commerce Parkway in Ladson, S.C., the company’s new facility supports the assembly of wiring and landing gear activities for the Dreamliner. With the new facility already operational, Safran’s wire harness inventory management, delivery and repair services will continue. Additionally, the company is also performing final assembly on the 787 landing gear to integrate wheel and brake system components.
