Israeli Defense Tech Firm IAI Opens Berlin Office To Grow Europe Operations
April 30, 2018 | Israel’s military and commercial aerospace tech company IAI (Israel Aerospace Industries) announced that it opened a new office in Berlin, Germany “to support its growing business in the European market.” In a statement put out by IAI, the company said chose Germany due to its “central role in Europe and its strong alliance with Israel,” as well as its regard for Germany “as a key European market and as a platform for co-development of defense and aeronautics technologies.” The Berlin office will replace IAI’s former location in Paris. “Collaborations with European companies form an important part of IAI’s presence in Europe, seeking to create synergetic solutions for the European and international market,” IAI said in a statement, noting Europe’s struggle with terrorism over the past several years. IAI co-developed Israel’s world-famous Iron Dome anti-missile defense system as well as the Arrow III interceptor system for long-range missiles. IAI also develops drones, satellites, naval systems, and radars for military and civilian use. Late last year, IAI inaugurated an office in Mexico City.
