In 1992, the Eurocopter Group was created via the merger of the helicopter divisions of Messerschmitt-Bolkow-Blohm (MBB) in Germany and Aerospatiale in France. At that time, the Group had around 12,000 employees and 11 subsidiaries and participations.
Twenty years later, the Group boasts an impressive track record, with 20,000 employees in the Group and 30 subsidiaries and participations in 21 countries, 33 percent of the worldwide civil and parapublic fleet, and more than 11,300 Eurocopter helicopters in service in 149 countries. Eurocopterâ€™s worldwide network of service centers, training facilities, distributors and certified agents supports some 2,900 customers.
Eurocopter offers the most comprehensive civil and military helicopter range in the world. For these reasons and many more, Eurocopter is very proud to celebrate its twenty years of existence, and many more to come.
