Thales has been present in Egypt since 1973, providing its customers with capabilities for air traffic control, communications, radars, air defence and transportation systems. Thales today employs 100 people in the country.
The Group’s vision is to bring security, safety and growth in the country; whilst evolving state sovereignty, providing sustainable economic development, and fostering local talent. This factor is evident through the continuous local cooperation between Thales and the Egyptian state.
Historically, Thales has provided defence solutions, aerospace and transportation systems for urban railway projects in Egypt. Over the last few years, the Group has extended its footprint in other areas including security for critical infrastructure and space-related products. Thales’ local presence is continuously increasing as a result of the country’s economic growth initiatives.
