Daher, or DAHER, is a French industrial conglomerate. Daher works in the aerospace, defence, nuclear, and automotive industrial sectors in the fields of manufacturing, services and transport.

History[edit]

The company was established in Marseille, France in 1863 by Alphonse Barban. The company was subsequently acquired by Paul Daher.

On 27 June 2008, EADS announced its intention to sell a controlling interest in EADS Socata to Daher.[1] On 3 November 2008, EADS and DAHER announced that they had reached an agreement for DAHER to acquire a 70% share of Socata.[2] On 7 January 2009, DAHER confirmed its acquisition of a majority 70% stake in SOCATA.[3]

In 2007, Daher acquired the Germany nuclear company Nuclear Cargo + Services (NCS), based in Hanau Germany. This marked Daher's first major push into the nuclear sector.[4] Subsequently, the U.S. Company, Transport Logistics International, Inc. became part of the Daher group on January 1, 2010 [5]
