Thales Alenia Space in Belgium awarded

On Thursday Mai 31st, The Walloon Export and Foreign Investment Agency (AWEX) gave Thales Alenia Space in Belgium the Wallonia Export Award. It rewards the company’s dynamism in the export market, which particularly brought out Walloon quality and know-how in Europe.

The Wallonia Export Award is meant to reward the efforts and the achievements of successful Walloon companies that managed to enter foreign markets with Walloon products and/or services, making them reputable. It may contribute to build a solid brand image of the industrial and cultural products, the know-how and the services made in Wallonia, from a foreign point of view.
 
While the export turnover is close to 100%, Thales Alenia Space in Belgium particularly stood out for its dynamism in the European space sector.
 
Thanks to continuous investments in research and innovation in the past years, Thales Alenia Space in Belgium has been able to develop a new generation of more efficient products bringing a new dimension to the company’s customers throughout the world.

We are extremely proud of winning this Award today. In order to be an actor in the export and especially in the European market, I believe that innovation must be an integral part of our company’s strategy, where innovative technologies make the difference. I would like to make it clear that these innovations – coming from our talents – are the result of a fruitful collaboration among manufacturers. They are also the result of a continuous support from the Belgian public authorities: on the one hand at a federal level with Belspo (Belgian Federal Science Policy Office), which actively supports the development of new technologies and products, and on the other hand at a regional level, by supporting the implementation of innovative means of production and tests.
Emmanuel Terrasse, CEO of Thales Alenia Space in Belgium.
