Thales Ale­nia Space ex­pands in Europe with Bri­tish sub­sidiary

SP's MAI - - CORPORATE -

Thales Ale­nia Space an­nounced that it is fur­ther ex­pand­ing its pres­ence in Europe with the cre­ation of a new Bri­tish sub­sidiary, Thales Ale­nia Space UK. Based at the Har­well Sci­ence and In­no­va­tion Cam­pus (HISC) in Oxfordshire, Thales Ale­nia Space UK is an in­te­gral part of the com­pany’s strat­egy to bol­ster its pres­ence in key coun­tries that in­vest heav­ily in the space sec­tor. It fol­lows the open­ing of Thales Ale­nia Space sub­sidiary in Ger­many in 2011 and the ex­ten­sion of the pres­ence of Thales Ale­nia Space in Bel­gium by the cre­ation of an of­fice in Leu­ven.

The de­ci­sion to lo­cate a new sub­sidiary in the UK was spurred by the UK Govern­ment’s com­mit­ment to fund space ac­tiv­i­ties and cre­ate new ini­tia­tives to fos­ter growth in the space in­dus­try – in­clud­ing the for­ma­tion of the UK Space Agency, an in­creased con­tri­bu­tion to the Euro­pean Space Agency (ESA), the in­vest­ment in the UK Space Gate­way at Har­well, and more re­cently se­cur­ing a sig­nif­i­cant share of the Neosat pro­gramme for the UK. Thales Ale­nia Space UK will be an in­te­gral part of Thales Ale­nia Space Neosat prime en­gi­neer­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, and will con­trib­ute to the de­sign and pro­duc­tion of the propul­sion sub­sys­tem for this new plat­form.
