Leonardo confirms its commitment to support and strengthens the industrial structure and competitiveness of its supply chain AD&S sector on international markets, also in this context affected by the pandemic situation.
The financial robustness of its supply chain has always been an important priority for Leonardo. In the current situation where liquidity needs are clearly greater, Leonardo is stepping up support and increasing the package of solutions and tools available to its suppliers, with a particular focus on SMEs, to ensure continuity and development to programmes which are strategically very important.
In this context, Leonardo, in its leadership role in the AD&S sector, has signed agreements with certain banks, factoring and other financial institutions that already support the Group's supply-chain.
These agreements are aimed at enhancing the financial strength of the supply-chain, ensuring credit for the small-mid size Italian suppliers in the sector.
Leonardo's partners in this initiative are: Banca Nazionale del Lavoro and International Factors Italia – IFITALIA S.p.A. (Gruppo BNP Paribas), Cassa Depositi e Prestiti S.p.A. and SACE S.p.A., Intesa Sanpaolo S.p.A., UniCredit S.p.A. and UniCredit Factoring S.p.A., Banco BPM S.p.A., Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank, Crédit Agricole Italia Spa and Eurofactor Italia SpA (Gruppo Crédit Agricole), UBI BANCA S.p.A. and UBI Factor S.p.A.
