Montoir Gron: The Wings of the Future

A Multimodal Logistics Rationale

Gron Airport, dual carriageway to Nantes, a motorway network, a rail network linking the port terminals… Montoir Gron puts multimodality into action thanks to the infrastructures and to the professionals present on site. Part of the 2LE (Logistics on the Loire Estuary) facility, alongside large-scale industrial and maritime activities, we find an impressive concentration of industrial or port-based logistics service providers (CGA, Daher, Gefco, IDEA, Manuport, MCS, SDV, Sea Invest, Soflog/Sofembal, Sogebras, Somaloir…). A centre of expertise that is regularly strengthened by the addition of new partners, such as Kuehne & Nagel in 2010. 

A Top-Level Land Development Offer

46 hectares have already been developed, including 40 hectares in the west zone and 6 hectares in the tertiary zone, Montoir Gron provides an extensive land development offer. The ground is regularly broken on new property developments and there are plans to construct two new buildings occupying a total surface area of 72 000 m2 in 2011.

An Air Transport Vocation

Montoir Gron and its airport facilities have a strong air transport vocation. Centring around Airbus, which has one plant at Montoir de Bretagne and a second plant at Nantes Bouguenais, a remarkable industrial and logistical dynamic is in place. It brings together long-standing partners, including Latécoère, which took over the Airbus plant in Saint Nazaire in 2007, but also numerous highly expert subcontractors, among whom are Aerolia (a division of EADS) or the American firm Spirit AeroSystems, which has located to Montoir de Bretagne in order to be more closely involved in the complex Europewide manufacturing set-up that Airbus represents, since all the flagship models in the aircraft manufacturer’s range are built in part on the Loire Estuary, not least the A380 and the A350.
