Boeing and PGZ to Pursue Broad Aerospace and Defense Collaboration

Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ), one of the largest defence groups in Europe, has signed a broad-based agreement with Boeing outlining areas where member companies may collaborate in support of the Technical Modernization Plan of the Polish Armed Forces.

 Together they will explore opportunities to support, sustain and upgrade defense systems; integrate Polish systems on Boeing platforms; strengthen manufacturing capabilities; incorporate PGZ companies in Boeings supply chain; pursue joint research and development and advance defense industrial capabilities.

PGZ member companies are diverse and have the potential to play an even larger role in the international aerospace and defense industry. The collaboration opportunities available through Boeings expansive military, commercial, security and space portfolios can turn potential into reality for PGZ, said Jeff Kohler, Boeings vice president for International Business Development for Defense, Space & Security.

One of the first Boeing platforms offering potential for Polish industry collaboration is the AH-64E Apache, which is a candidate for Polands attack helicopter requirement as part of the countrys defense modernization program.

 Boeing and its AH-64E Apache industry team which includes General Electric, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Longbow Ltd. recently participated in a two-day workshop with 10 PGZ companies to forge partnerships as part of Polands Kruk Program.

 Since its establishment, PGZs priority has been to make its business activity as international as possible. We find it particularly important to conclude such agreements with foreign partners that, on one hand, are going to support the execution of the Technical Modernization Plan of the Polish Armed Forces and, on the other hand, are going to incorporate PGZ companies in international supply chains, said Wojciech Dąbrowski, President of the Management Board of PGZ. I am convinced that cooperation between PGZ and Boeing will be fruitful for both parties. This is an opportunity for PGZ companies to achieve innovation growth and enter new business areas.
