    SAS Atelier CHABORD

    Maurice Chabord's company becomes EURL CHABORD. The activity extends to the mechanic-welding for the Peugeot Sport cars engaged in the Paris Dakar and then those of Citroën Sport in rallies.
    At the same time, EURL CHABORD, which became SAS ATELIER CHABORD, became involved in the certification of silent exhausts for light civil aircraft. This commitment responds to an increasingly pressing demand from Aero-Clubs confronted with the problems of noise pollution denounced by local residents. This new involvement in aeronautics will broaden the company's field of activity, thanks to the approvals obtained from the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).
