Local cooperation

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, radar systems, aviation safety and defence technology.
The Nordic and Baltic cooperation with the Group will also bring high levels of modernisation, increasing capabilities for both parties.
