A FAST GROWING INDUSTRIAL GROUP
VENTANA Group, present in France, Austria, Sweden, Tunisia, and Portugal was created in 2003 and has since seen strong organic growth and simultaneously broadened its technological expertise. The Group now consists of 13 companies divided into 3 divisions (mechanical, mecaweld and foundry) with complementary synergies, in an integrated and evolving organization.
Thanks to strong independent shareholders, VENTANA has invested more than 20 M€ (excluding acquisitions and creations) over the last 10 years to prepare the future to be at the service of its customers.
Our mission : to conceive and implement efficient manufacturing processes, which are increasingly more respectful of people and the environment, for your high value added metal components and sub-assemblies.
Our fields of excellence serve the most demanding industries such as aviation, space, defence, energy and motor sports.
By choosing to work in partnership with the VENTANA Group, you will be participating in a unique manufacturing experience made of sharing and fulfillment. Whether you are a project sponsor or are looking for a motivating professional experience, we are here to listen to your needs and suggestions.

A COMPLETE RANGE OF MANUFACTURING PROCESSES
Fruit of the technological innovations developed by VENTANA and its partners, constituting as many combinations of our core businesses to adapt to our customers’ needs.
Simplify your supply chain by opting for our sustainable and efficient solutions for the co-design, industrialisation and manufacturing of your high value-added metal components and sub-assemblies :
• One single contact point for the customer (the VENTANA customer sales support). Total control and management of the supply chain including our sub-contractors
• A common system of continuous improvement of our productions and processes
• International certification of our processes (ISO 9001, EN 9100 & NADCAP)
|With V-Refab, reproduce spare parts that cannot be found on the market, without tooling and in record time ! All we need is an OEM part, our reverse engineering resources and manufacturing processes will do the rest for you. Our partner Vint'air is your contact for the Vintage market, drawing on our expertise and industrial resources.||With V-Weldmill, combine mechanical welding with precision milling ! Our expertise is based on our mastery of tolerances and complex shapes, whatever the material, thanks to our experienced teams, who enjoy taking up your technical and industrial challenges.|
| With V-Millcast, profit from the expertise of the only French group to master light alloy sand casting and the associated machining of very complex parts ! V-Millcast is also a guarantee of a solid, sustainable supply chain relying on 4 foundries and 2 machining plants backed by VENTANA's integrated organization.||With V-Hybcast, discover a light alloy sand casting you have never seen before: development times as short as ALM (Additive Layer Manufacturing), production repeatability on a par with a CNC machine tool, sharply reduced non-recurrent costs (NRC), not to mention total design flexibility for your new products. In a nutshell, the V-Hybcast hybrid foundry has all the advantages of direct manufacturing, without the drawbacks (metallurgic and dimensional stability, lower cost and no size limitation) !|
COLLABORATIVE R&T PROJECTS
VENTANA is giving itself the means to achieve its innovation ambitions (innovation being one of three strategic aims of its Agile 2018 company project) by investing heavily in research to optimise its manufacturing processes and V-Solutions, in line with its CSR policy.
Development of smart workstations and advanced measuring devices. This project will expand the use of digital tools whose virtual assistant will help operators in their daily tasks and training. The project will also help increase the appeal of the V-Weldmill and V-Millcast solutions. (CORAC's Aeronautical Factory of the Future platform)
Substitution of silica sand traditionally used in sand foundry by a synthetic medium in order to drastically reduce raw materials consumption, mold wastes, and to eliminate the HSE risks inherent in the light alloys foundry process with the view to improving employee’s working conditions.
This project will characterise and compare various additive manufacturing processes of high-performance alloys to incorporate them into our V- Weldmill and V-Refab V-Solutions. It will also help develop a cross-border network of French and Spanish industrial partners. (Poctefa European project)
A New Chance for Guidance
As part of the "Nouvelle Chance pour l'Orientation" (A New Chance for Guidance) scheme launched by the Aquitaine Regional Council, VENTANA helped to create, in collaboration with the Guynemer High School in Oloron, a convincing prototype developed by 2 microbusinesses from Aquitaine, namely Néomades in Bidart and Tikki Move in Bordeaux.
Thanks to the supervision of UIMM Adour Atlantique, the project then expanded to a nationwide app, encompassing several dozen casting, machining and soon mechanical welding jobs.
You too can download the NCO app and test your aptitude for these fascinating jobs, by doing a search on "NCO UIMM" from your App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).
