  • ANALYSIS: Finmeccanica has some breathing room

    News | 13 Nov 2014 10:11 | Dan Thisdell

    To say it has been an eventful year – or at least a stressful one – for Finmeccanica would be an understatement. On the plus side, 2014 has seen a resolution of the scandal surrounding its AgustaWestland unit’s deal to sell VVIP helicopters to India. And the group – nearly one-third owned by the Italian government and long a repository for sometimes-troubled Italian state industrial enterprises – appears to be within reach of its goal of finding buyers for its very troubled rail rolling stock and technology businesses, which lie at the root of many of its financial woes.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Finmeccanica-has-some-breathing-room-405569/

    News | 11 Nov 2014 14:05 | Murdo Morrison

    ​Becoming a tier one in the aerospace supply chain is a tough business, and the 21-year rise of Dema from $2 million-turnover boutique design house to one of Italy’s foremost aerostructures players has not been without growing pains.
