Opening of Terma Brussels was celebrated at a well-attended reception at the new office facilities. The opening marks the continuous global expansion of the company.
With a global footprint and European companies in Denmark, The Netherlands, Germany, the UK, and now with the opening of the NATO and EU office in Brussels, Terma is a key supplier to most NATO member states across airborne and naval platforms, within the land-based radar segment, and for the European space industry.
“We decided to open the Brussels office, because we believe that being even closer to key decisions makers such as NATO, EU institutions, and embassies is key to our future growth,” says Steen M. Lynenskjold, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Terma A/S, who hosted the event. He continues:
“We highly appreciate the support we have received with regard to the opening – not least from all the Danish representations including the Permanent EU representation, The Danish Delegation to NATO and the Danish Embassy. It’s a testament to our enduring partnerships with the official Denmark – both the Danish political system and the defense forces.”
Guests at the reception included high-level people from NATO, embassies, the EU institutions, industry organizations and European and US industry partners.
“We have a long history working with NATO programs. However, decisions in NATO influence the Danish defense and security policy and that is affecting us as a company. Moreover, our framework conditions are shaped in EU, and we need to stay on top of that as well,” says Anne Mette M. Søndergaard, Director European Affairs, and the new head of Terma Brussels.
Among others, Terma is involved in NATO AGS (Alliance Ground Surveillance) and in NATO AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control System).
Also, as a member of the External Affairs Commission (EAC) of ASD (Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Europe), Terma expects to be collaborating closely with industry peers to support issues regarding European defense and security policy.
