CDR Recognizes Airbus as Canada’s Top Defence Company

At CANSEC 2019, CDR Publisher Brett Kitchen proudly presented the award for Canada’s Top Defence Company to Simon Jacques, President of Airbus Canada.

With its recently acquired stake in the Canadian-developed A220 jetliner, Airbus Defence & Space Canada, is now this country’s biggest aerospace player but the company has been quietly operating here for 35 years and with this move it now leaps 23 places in CDR’s annual survey all the way to the # 1 position.

“On behalf of Airbus in Ottawa, we’re thrilled to have been selected as Canada’s top defence company for 2019, said Jacques. 

“We’re looking forward to growing our already substantial cooperation with the Government of Canada and Canadian suppliers towards even greater success enhancing jobs, economic benefits and capabilities for our Canadian Armed Forces,” he continued.

This is the first time for Airbus at the # 1 position, but with its stake in the A220, its role in supplying the C295 for FWSAR and its important work on other DND projects, it is expected that the government will call on the various capabilities of this innovative defence player in the years ahead.
