Leonardo at FIA 2016
11 - 17 July 2016: we are Leonardo at the Farnborough International Airshow.
The Airshow which has always seen us as protagonists in its previous editions with the technological excellence of our products and a keen eye on global markets, this time signifies a truly special occasion.
For the first time at Farnborough, the most anticipated and important event of the year for Aerospace, Defence and Security, our Company is present with a new organisation and a new name.
A double debut where, even though the scenario is so familiar to us, the Airshow’s international stage offers the sense of a new beginning. Farnborough’s prestigious showcase is the perfect spotlight to show our customers and partners the path that took us from Finmeccanica to Leonardo, the results already achieved and the goals we want to reach.
The Farnborough Airshow is the first major global opportunity to show the world how we have changed. And how much we have changed.
On 1 January 2016, we became One Company, an integrated and dynamic industrial entity, with one voice to respond to the needs of customers and markets.We are very proud of this achievement, reached through a process of great transformation undertaken over the past two years and driven by great determination, commitment and passion.
To introduce and communicate our new identity, on 28 April 2016, our name changed from Finmeccanica to Leonardo. Our new brand is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, the great Renaissance engineer, scientist, and artist, who enriched the world with his extraordinary creativity, foresights and inventions. Leonardo was an innovator in the deepest and most modern of ways and an expression of the universal value of research and experimentation.
That’s why we chose him as the symbol of our way of being, thinking and operating. Because he embodies our capacity to look further, to provide our customers and partners with timely and effective solutions, through the technological excellence of our products, services and integrated solutions.
