As a partner of the Bundeswehr and numerous international armed forces, Diehl Defence develops and delivers high-tech equipment in the fields of ground-based air defence, guided missiles, ammunition as well as training and protection systems.
Changes in the markets and new requirements on the part of our customers necessitate proactive measures. We have therefore decided to concentrate our defence business, as from February 1, 2017, under a single roof:
Diehl Defence GmbH & Co. KG
The new company will assume both the tasks of the previous Diehl Defence Holding GmbH and the business activities of the business unit Diehl BGT Defence GmbH & Co. KG.
The existing board of management of both companies will remain unchanged, comprising:
-- Dipl-Kfm. Claus Günther, Strategy and Investments, President
-- Dipl.-Betriebsw. (BA) Thomas Bodenmüller, Chief Financial Officer,
-- Dr. rer. nat. Rainer Kroth, Chief Technology Officer,
-- Dipl-Ing. (BA) Helmut Rauch, Chief Program Officer.
Taking this step, we want to prepare for the future, improve our prospects in the market and safeguard jobs. Our aspiration remains providing tailor-made operational equipment within the agreed cost and time frame.
