Its high-tech component design and manufacturing activities operate in the aviation, space and, more recently, industrial drone markets (surveillance and autonomous hospital-to-hospital transport). In Belgium, the company is located in Lummen (composite structures), in Brussels (metallic aerostructures) and in Louvain-la-Neuve (SABCA Technologies). It is part of the Orizio Group since 2020, along side with Sabena Engineering.
