Dutch Technology

Airbus Defence and Space Netherlands is Nederlands van oorsprong. Wat in 1968 begon als de ruimtevaartafdeling van vliegtuigconcern Fokker, groeide uit tot een zelfstandig bedrijf gespecialiseerd in innovatieve ruimtevaarttechnologie. Ook als onderdeel van de Airbusgroep blijft onze eigen, noem het typisch Nederlandse, aanpak overeind: betrouwbaar, oplossingsgericht, met een helder einddoel voor ogen en altijd in voor (internationale) samenwerking.
