MBDA, a world leader in missiles and missile systems, is a multi-national group with over 9,750 employees in France, the United Kingdom, Italy and Germany and the United State. MBDA has three major aeronautical and defence shareholders - BAE Systems (37.5%), EADS (37.5%) and Finmeccanica (25%), and is the first truly integrated European defence company. MBDA works with over 90 armed forces worldwide. MBDA was created in December 2001, after the merger of the main missile producers in France, Italy and United Kingdom. Each of these companies contributed the experience gained from fifty years of technological and operational success. The restructuring of the industry in Europe was completed with the acquisition of the German subsidiary EADS/LFK in March 2006. This further enriched MBDA’s range of technologies and products, consolidating the Group’s world-leading position in the industry.
