Thales has been involved in Danish projects since 1973, and established the Nordic & Baltic regional office in the country due to the significance of the Group’s activities and market outlook.
In Denmark, Thales provides innovative solutions and advanced technologies in Defence, Ground Transportation, Air Traffic Management, Passports & Biometric solutions. Today, Thales Denmark employs more than 200 people and functions as the hub for nine countries in Nordic & Baltic countries.
A presence for 45 years

Thales’ strategy is to boost its local presence by establishing local partnerships. In Denmark, Thales already has a significant number of collaborations with local subcontractors and partners and will, as new contracts arrive, continue to reach out to local expertise.
As Thales recognises the high quality of Danish research, it is a principal objective to recruit local employees and establish long-term cooperation with Danish universities and regional research centres. The markets we aim to address lie within transportation, aviation safety and defence & security technology. A recent example is the acquisition of Cubris, which is a Danish company specialised in developing support systems to optimise train driving and operation, leading to substantial energy savings.
The Nordic and Baltic cooperation with the Group will also bring high levels of modernisation, increasing capabilities for both parties.
Denmark’s first European Train Control System (ETCS) line is now in service. The new digital signalling system has been in operation since 21 October on the line between Frederikshavn and Lindholm in Northern Jutland.
CTS Ceramics Denmark and Thales Defense Mission Systems have collaborated since the end the 2000s to build knowledge within sonar technology. Now the collaboration results in a four-year 1M EUR contract between our two companies further cementing our mutual relationship. Through this contract, CTS Ceramics Denmark will provide piezoelectric components to Thales future Sonar solutions.
