Restructuring, Rebranding and New Management Team
Part of HENSOLDT Group since 2017, EuroAvionics has now been rebranded as HENSOLDT Avionics, as part of a strategy driven by a new management team, led by Managing Directors André Hinueber and Dieter Buchdrucker, the company announced on 5 March.
“HENSOLDT Avionics is highly successful in the civil avionics market while HENSOLDT has a strong position in the military avionics domain,” explained Celia Pelaz, Head of Spectrum Dominance/Airborne Solutions at HENSOLDT. “Our complementary portfolio and market access open up mutual growth opportunities which are now also reflected by the name change.”
With approximately 100 employees, HENSOLDT Avionics designs, manufactures and markets civil certified avionic equipment that provides interfaces to a wide range of third-party avionics and sensors. Among their products are situational awareness mission management systems as well as enhanced reality computers and autopilots, particularly for UAS. The company generates revenues of over €20 million, and its products are installed in almost every type of civil helicopter.
Mother company HENSOLDT is a leading provider of military avionics systems, such as situational awareness systems, military mission computers and flight data recorders for helicopters and fighter aircraft.
From 1 March a new management team at HENSOLDT Avionics GmbH has been in place: André Hinueber served at HENSOLDT Sensors GmbH for several years and will be Managing Director, responsible for business development and manufacturing; Dieter Buchdrucker is Co-Managing Director, responsible for human resources and finance; Michael Gröninger, as Authorised Officer, will be responsible for the product business as a long-time and experienced manager of HENSOLDT Avionics GmbH.
