Backed by recent contracts and research performed with the DGA (French defense procurement agency) and various industrial players in the sector, including Airbus Group, Lacroix offers to provide the RSAF with the latest generation of spectral flares.

The RSAF is about to select the three best offers before opening the evaluation phase on a sample of products. A major step for which Lacroix is confident, because “we can rely on very high performance and success rate in deceiving the threat,” said Lacroix’s new Head of Asean & Pacific Office, Rémy Gardon.

Development of stable, durable and precise chemical compositions offers the best efficiency for dealing against missiles,” he added.

The Etienne Lacroix Group (turnover of € 139 million in 2016), which will celebrate its 170th anniversary this year, is a word leader in pyrotechnics applied to the defense, law enforcement and civil protection sectors. For several years, Etienne Lacroix Group has been active in international deployment and market share take-up in the Middle East and Asia.

In order to develop its business in South East Asia and Oceania, Etienne Lacroix Group decided to open a representative office in Malaysia in 2017, with the aim of prospecting and developing commercial relations with state actors.
