Leonardo is a new brand that defines the change of the company and its transformation from a financial holding company to an operational, integrated and innovative industrial entity.
Leonardo is Italy's leading aerospace and defence company. The Group plays a significant role in major international programmes and the global market. Leonardo's presence in aeronautics include the design and production of civil and military aircraft and trainers, helicopters and tiltrotors, the overhaul and conversion of aircraft. In defence electronics, Leonardo is leader in avionic systems and equipment,electro-optical payloads and UAV, naval and battlefield C4ISR systems and ATM systems. Defence systems represent a field of excellence for Leonardo, with a leadership in medium caliber naval artillery and wheeled combat vehicles and in land and underwater weapons systems.
28 April 2016: the Shareholders' Meeting approves Finmeccanica’s new name. From now on, it will be Leonardo - Società per Azioni. After sixty-eight years of history, the brand name that has identified the high technology industry in our country, from the post-war period to the present time is renewed in the very modern name of Leonardo da Vinci, innovator in his times and recognised as universal symbol of genius and creativity applied to all fields of inquiry.
The name change is the logical conclusion of a path of profound renewal that got its start with the transformation of 1 January 2016 – from financial holding to One Company, a single industrial company, integrated and concentrated on the key sectors of aerospace, defence and security.
Leonardo thus takes the baton of an important industrial development, which started even before Finmeccanica, with the goal of representing worldwide the new image of a global and technologically advanced company.
