Terma’s German subsidiary Terma GmbH in Darmstadt proudly received a visit from Michael Gahler, Member of the European Parliament for the European People’s Party.

Michael Gahler is a candidate for Hesse region for the European Elections on 26 May 2019. He has been a MEP since 1999. During his two decades of service, he has focused on European security, defence and space issues and has been instrumental for setting up the Pilot Projects on Defence Research back in 2015. Thanks to this initiative, the European Commission subsequently set up the Preparatory Action on Defence Research (PADR), the European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP) and the European Defence Fund (EDF).

Mr Gahler was briefed on Terma’s activities in Germany and our footprint in programs of the EU and ESA. Furthermore, the importance of research and development funding for the continued success of the industry and maintaining highly-skilled jobs in the area was on the agenda. Mr Gahler was committed to ensuring the attractiveness of the region.

Terma GmbH, with 82 employees from 24 different countries, continues being on a growth path and is looking at many opportunities in the future. The space business in Germany and Europe with both civilian and non-civilian applications is set to grow considerably in the coming years.

As a global company, Terma is active in many different and diverse markets. While our home base is and continues to be in Denmark, we strive to be regarded as a native company in each and every country we are active in. Terma has been present in Germany for nearly 40 years and we value the persisting relationships with our German customers and end users.
