History

Daher pioneered the convergence of manufacturing and service provision

Daher has been forged by logistical challenges and has, throughout its history, made a proactive contribution to successive industrial revolutions by developing a breadth of expertise that spans shipping, lifting, transportation and logistics. Today, it designs and operates logistics services for the aerospace and advanced technology industries. In terms of manufacturing, its involvement dates back to 1911 and the pioneering plane maker Morane-Saulnier. Its current TBM range of single-engine turboprop aircraft makes Daher the world’s oldest aircraft manufacturer still in operation.
