MBDA is the only European group capable of designing and producing missiles and missile systems to meet the whole range of current and future needs of the three armed forces.
MBDA is the first truly integrated defence company in Europe and the only European one able to provide missiles and missile systems for each branch of the armed forces, whether in the air, at sea or on land.
A multi-national group with 10,000 employees working together across France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. Offices also set up in USA.
FIFTY YEARS OF EUROPEAN TECHNOLOGICAL AND OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE
MBDA was created in December 2001 after the merger of the main missile systems companies in France, Italy and the United Kingdom. Each of these companies contributed the experience gained from fifty years of technological and operational success.
In March 2006, the restructuring of the sector in Europe took its next step through the acquisition of LFK-Lenkflugkörpersysteme GmbH, the German missile subsidiary of EADS (now AIRBUS Group).
This operation enriched MBDA’s range of technologies and products, consolidating the Group’s world-leading position in the industry.
Jointly held by 3 prestigious shareholders: AIRBUS Group (37.5%), BAE Systems (37.5%) and Leonardo (25%).
