Across Europe, we are redefining the future of aerospace

Collins Aerospace has a legacy of innovation in Europe that spans more than a century. Our roots in Europe are deep, tracing back to companies like Ratier, Nord Micro, L’hotellier and Dräger Aerospace – established in Europe since the early 1900s.

Today, our facilities employ 15,000 people in 15 European countries. They include more than 3,000 local engineers, whose ingenuity is a flourishing source of intellectual property for the region.

Europe is a proud and critical part of our heritage. It’s also a major part of aviation’s future.

Collins Aerospace in Europe serves ministries of defense, integrators, aircraft manufacturers, airlines and other customers across Europe and beyond. We’re applying local talent, technologies and partnerships to develop more intelligent, connected, electric and sustainable solutions for aerospace and defense markets worldwide.

Innovating and growing our capabilities across the continent are two more ways we’re redefining aerospace.
