EFESO Aerospace and Defence industry

DELIVER SHORT TERM RESULTS


The Aerospace & Defence industry is truly global. Its ecosystem is comprised of a complex, world-wide network of organisations that both collaborate and compete with each other to fulfil commercial, industrial and military needs.

These organisations range from very large to very small businesses and include original equipment manufacturers, systems integrators, airframe suppliers, component providers, transport and cargo carriers and maintenance, repair and overhaul companies as well as end users.

The urgency to deliver short-term performance improvements goes hand-in-hand with mid-term capability building and long-term financial sustainability

Therefore, in Aerospace & Defence the main challenge is to design and implement progression programs that combine the above in order to deliver Value as promised to all stakeholders. In a context where complexity and innovation are increasing, as well as pressure on cost, scale of investment is booming, competition is fierce and clients can afford to be more demanding than ever.

EFESO is able to support A&D Program performances by combining knowledge and experience which, in partnership with our A&D clients, have already proven to be the right path to achieve significant and sustainable results.
