Cobham Establishes Cobham SATCOM Business Unit
Cobham plc combined its acquired Danish satcom company Thrane & Thrane with its own satellite business unit to create a new strategic business unit (SBU), Cobham SATCOM.
Thrane & Thrane CEO Walther Thygesen will lead the new Denmark-based Cobham SATCOM, which is double the size of Thrane & Thrane or Cobham’s legacy satcom businesses were prior to the acquisition.
Thrane & Thrane will trade as Cobham SATCOM beginning in November.
“The integration of the businesses is going well, with teams focused on how best to bring together complementary product lines and routes to market so that we can grow the business further. As the demand for airborne, land-mobile and maritime satellite communications continues to increase, we’re working hard to make it easier for customers to buy from us a wider range of satcom equipment and integrated solutions,” said Richard Tyson, president of Cobham Aerospace and Security Division.
