Thales structure
During the 70s, Thales began to develop its activity in passive components (Componentes, S.A.) and military equipment (Equipos Electrónicos S.A.).

From 1990 onwards, the company implemented a multidimensional policy in Spain through the creation of two Joint Ventures in defence electronics (Amper Programas and SAES), the acquisition of computer services and solutions businesses (Thales Information Systems, SAU)
 
The New Thales
The year 2007 marks a milestone in the company's history on a global level due to agreements signed with Alcatel-Lucent, through which Thales has acquired the Railway Signalling and Services and Space Integration activities. With a team of 67,000 people, sales exceeding 12,000 million euros and an industrial presence in more than 56 countries, Thales has become the world leader in mission-critical systems for three leading markets: Defence, Aerospace and Security.

These same kinds of corporate trends have been observed in Spain. Currently, Thales has a staff of more than 1300  professionals, business activity worth more than 300 million euros and a strong presence in the leading markets of  Transportation, Defence, Aerospace & Space and Security.
 
Thales Spain has a new release of the Integrated Management System Policy . This Policy integrates the main operational principles, aligned with the standards adopted in our Company and is common for the legal entities Thales España GRP, Thales Sistemas de Seguridad and Thales Programas.
