RUAG International is selling parts of the business at the Oberpfaffenhofen location

Felix Ammann, Managing Director of RUAG Aerospace Services GmbH, says: “We are pleased to have found an experienced industrial partner in General Atomics Europe who has the best prerequisites to successfully continue business activities at Oberpfaffenhofen special airport. Leading the location with its 450 employees into a secure future is RUAG International’s the top priority.”

Location safeguarding and technological expertise for Bavaria Harald Robl, Managing Director of General Atomics Europe, adds: “We are aware of the challenges that a takeover of this magnitude means, especially in the aviation sector amid the current coronavirus crisis. However, General Atomics Europe is economically robust. In addition, we have developed a future concept that creates a classic win-win situation for GA-Europe and the future new location in Oberpfaffenhofen. We are convinced of the great potential of this company and its employees and want to develop Oberpfaffenhofen into the European aviation core of the General Atomics Europe Group. At the same time, we would like to thank the Bavarian State Government, in particular State Secretary Roland Weigert from the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, who has positively accompanied and supported the process.”
