Thales is considering further acquisitions in the UK, says UK chief executive Alex Dorrian. The company "will certainly look for acquisition opportunities in the UK, but perhaps with more focus" as it "seeks to enhance [its] multi­domestic presence globally".

Any acquisitions would be consistent with the company's current strategy, focusing on defence, security and service provision. He adds: "We don't feel driven by an urgent timescale."
