INTERNATIONAL PRESENCEJPB Système operates from three locations: our headquarter and main factory in Villaroche (France), a mirror plant in Aviation Valley (Poland), and sales offices in Cincinnati (USA).
OUR COMPANY HISTORY
During the Paris Air Show, Jean-Pierre MARC, Damien MARC's father, was challenged by SNECMA (now Safran Aircraft Engine) to find a solution for removing lock-wire from borescope plugs on aircraft engines.
JPB Système obtained certifications for its self-locking solutions designed for the GE90-115 engine (used in the Boeing 777) and the G7200 engine (used in the Airbus A380).
After Jean-Pierre MARC unexpectedly passed away, his son Damien MARC took the role of Director of the Company.
He established three strategic pillars: ongoing product innovation, accelerated market expansion to other countries and aircraft manufacturers, and production expertise. His guiding principle were 'deliver 100% on time with 100% quality'.
To expand our business in North America, we established a commercial office in Cincinnati, OH.
JPB Système became a part of the prestigious circle of 'BPI Excellence'.
Additionally, we received the Innovation Award from INPI, the prestigious French National Institute of Intellectual Property.
JPB Système secured a 30-year contract with Rolls-Royce to provide equipment for the TRENT Engine family and patented a new self-locking borescope plug designed to withstand extreme conditions.
Concurrently, we established a new plant to accommodate the growth in the aeronautic sector in Villaroche, located in the south of Paris.
JPB Système secured a contract with SAFRAN Aircraft Engine and earns the award for the fastest-growing aeronautic company.
JPB Système filed a new patent for a revolutionary lockwireless fluid fittings B-nut application. This self-locking fitting is named LULYLOK™.
To accommodate the increase in customer orders, Damien MARC decided to double the size of the plant in Villaroche.
JPB Système also received the award for 'Industrial Performance' of the year.
The company established a unique robotics machining line with 100% automated inspection. The entire manufacturing process can be managed from a smartphone. Additionally, the company secured a Long Term Agreement (LTA) with Pratt & Whitney and achieved the 7th consecutive award for being the Best SAFRAN supplier.
JPB Système inaugurated a mirror production plant in RZESZOW, near KRAKOW, situated in the aviation valley in Poland, ensuring business continuity for our customers.
Additionally, we initiated investments in additive manufacturing, specifically metal 3D printing technology (MBJ).
Creation of KEYPROD: a startup with digital expertise. KEYPROD is a unique plug & play production monitoring solution.
JPB Système seized the crisis period as an opportunity to accelerate products development by hiring top-class engineers in R&D and preparing for the business recovery. Notably, no employee were laid off.
