Arkania Group: A history of growth and success.
Founded in 1969 in the Loir-et-Cher region of France, Arkania Group has developed into a thriving business. This expansion has been accomplished through the acquisition of several key companies in the industrial sector.
Our expertise began in machining and has expanded to include boiler making, sheet metal work, laser cutting, composite, and packaging. We have also strengthened our position by creating a robust engineering department, which allows us to meet the most complex requirements of the defense market.
