Thales is now expanding its presence in Romania through the development of a Group Engineering Competence Centre (ECC), reinforcing its position as a leader in all its markets. The ECC will deliver solutions beyond ground transportation, in a number of core Thales business areas, from space and defence, to security and aeronautics.
The ECC will deliver a first class Thales engineering capability in Romania thanks to the existing ecosystem of skilled engineers and the agile environment that Bucharest has to offer. Both the needs of the local market and export markets will be catered for, meaning those who join Thales will have the opportunity of working on diverse projects with a high level of complexity, innovating in all the different markets we are present in.
As a global technology leader, Thales has the capabilities, the strength and desire to address new challenges and new opportunities ahead in Romania. With our engineers and researchers, we have unparalleled capability to design and deploy equipment, systems, and services to meet the most complex security requirements. Thanks to the Bucharest-based Competence Centre, we will have a greater capability to serve Romania’s ambitions.
Building on its position as a leader in the rail transport industry, Thales in Romania is diversifying its activities to become a front runner in all of our core markets. Our Engineering Centre in Bucharest is becoming a strategic site in Thales Group, with high-level projects and career opportunities across all of our businesses: Defense, Security, Space, Aerospace and Ground Transportation. The highly skilled engineers and talented researchers Romania has to offer will provide the capability to deliver the best, innovative and digital solutions to our customers, both locally and globally.
