Naval Group recently opened a regional office in Mexico in order to promote its products and services and to develop partnerships in the country. Mexico becomes the 18th country where Naval Group operates

This opening represents the first step of a long-term commitment of cooperation and partnership in developing naval capabilities in Mexico.

Naval Group is an international player in naval defence. As a naval systems provider and integrator, the Group has a history of more than 400 years in the defense industry. Partnering with more than 50 navies around the world, Naval Group aims to share with Mexico its breadth of experience and unrivalled technical expertise in ships with combat systems and all critical equipment and services necessary to build and maintain in order to engage naval units in a theatre of operations.

Olivier Michel, Naval Group Senior Vice President Sales for Latin America said: “The establishment of a regional office in Mexico is a new step in Naval Group’s strategy to develop the proximity with our customers, our international footprint and long-term partnerships in the country with the local industry. Such partnerships are a fantastic opportunity for transferring of knowledge and technology, developing and reinforcing industrial and technological capabilities as well as job opportunities.”

The company’s extensive portfolio opens many opportunities to address the entire range of Mexican naval needs. Naval Group has demonstrated in many countries such as in Brazil, India or Egypt its capability to support naval and maritime capabilities and economic growth of its partners.

The opening of the representative office enables the group to identify synergies and partners to support the needs of Mexico and Central America.
