The consolidation will complement Thales’s footprint in the land market in particular, meanwhile sustaining its field-proven expertise in helicopters and military aircraft solutions. This acquisition will provide an opportunity to reinforce local footprint in priority geographies (France, Switzerland, Germany and the United Kingdom), while increasing presence in UAE and Australia.

The synergies of Thales and RUAG S&T will create new opportunities to accelerate the deployment of next generation hybrid solutions, combining world-class live and synthetic expertise. The initiative, which is driven by the digitalisation of land forces, is fully in line with the global evolution toward more environmentally friendly solutions, in line with Thales ESG commitments.

With the formal acquisition process completed, the next step will be to initiate the integration of the two companies to create a more efficient business, while ensuring the continuity of activities and operations for the benefit of the armed forces.
