When the French industry was forcibly nationalized in 1936, 2 firms, Farman and Hanriot, were grouped to form Société Nationale de Constructions Aéronautiques du Centre, known as SNCAC or Aérocentre. Products included NC.211 Cormoran heavy transport, NC.853 light 2-seater and NC.1080 naval jet fighter. In 1949 the group went into liquidation, its plants and work being shared by SNCAN (Nord), SNCASO (Sud-Ouest) and engine firm SNECMA.
