Zodiac Aerospace has its eye on the sky. The company, formerly Groupe Zodiac, makes aerospace equipment for commercial aircraft, helicopters, and space applications. It operates through three main business areas: Cabin Interiors (cabin fittings), Aircraft Systems (fuel circulation, monitoring, and control systems), and AeroSafety & Technology (evacuation systems and airbags). With about three-quarters of its workforce based outside of France, Zodiac maintains production facilities near some of the largest aeronautics manufacturers in the world, particularly in North America and Europe. The Domange and Marechal families together own about 25% of the company, equal to 40% of its voting rights.
