Alenia Aermacchi celebrates 100th anniversary

Alenia Aermacchi celebrates 100th anniversary

May 1, 2013, Alenia Aermacchi turned 100 years old.

The sole aeronautical company in the world to boast over a century of activity under the same shared brand, Alenia was incorporated in 1913 by Giulio Macchi as Società Anonima Nieuport-Macchi. 100 years later, the brand Alenia Aermacchi oversees the aviation sector of Finmeccanica Italy’s main industrial group that ranks in the top ten groups in the aerospace, defense, and security sectors.

Created on January 11,2012 from the merger of Alenia Aeronautica, Alenia Aermacchi and Alenia SIA, today’s Alenia Aermacchi is the final step of a long integration process launched in the mid-sixties aimed at streamlining operations to better compete in the international markets, markets which demanded solid companies that offered integrated product portfolios

Today, Alenia Aermacchi has grown its workforce to ca. 12.000 people – a distinct contrast from the 10 workers who built the first Nieuport-Macchi monoplane in 1913. .With its activities balanced equally between the military and the civilian sectors, it is a global major player in the aviation industry.
During its century of activities, the “Alenia’ companies which progressively merged with under today’s brand have designed, developed, built, delivered and supported nearly 30,00000 aircraft in both the civilian and military sectors. These aircraft have been\operated by air forces, airlines and private operators around the world.

Giuseppe Giordo, Alenia Aermacchi’s CEO, commented: “Our first 100 years mean a century of records, of technological achievements and of development of an industrial system which has been generating a significant economic and social impact in our country. Today Italy boasts one of the few aviation industries in the world able to offer a last generation fighter, a tactical transport aircraft whose superiority is worldwide acknowledged, an outstanding advanced jet trainer and several industrial collaboration programs ranging from the modern Boeing 787 up to the A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft.”

During the remaining months of 2013, several initiatives will be promoted to celebrate Alenia Aermacchi’s centenary, highlighting the role the company has played in the development of aviation technology and its impact on economy and society.
As of today, a dedicated website is online: www.aleniaaermacchi100.it
Alenia Aermacchi may be100 years old, but it still has the same urge to fly as it did on the first day!

One Hundred Years Young

Alenia Aermacchi è entrata il 1 Maggio 2013 nel suo primo secolo di vita. Unica società aeronautica al mondo che può vantare un secolo di attività sotto uno marchio comune, venne costituita nel lontano 1913 da Giulio Macchi come Società Anonima Nieuport-Macchi. Un secolo più tardi il nome Alenia Aermacchi raccoglie l’intero settore aeronautico di Finmeccanica, il maggior gruppo industriale italiano nel settore delle alte tecnologie.

Nata il 1° gennaio 2012 dalla fusione di Alenia Aeronautica, Alenia Aermacchi e Alenia SIA, l’attuale Alenia Aermacchi è l’approdo finale di un processo di integrazione lanciato alla metà degli anni Sessanta con l’obbiettivo di competere sui mercati internazionali che già allora richiedevano aziende solide e con una gamma di prodotti integrata.

Alenia Aermacchi oggi conta complessivamente circa 12.000 addetti – contro i 10 operai necessari nel 1913 per costruire il primo monoplano Nieuport-Macchi – ed è il principale attore industriale del Paese in questo campo, con un’attività bilanciata tra il settore civile e quello della difesa.

In questo secolo di attività che la hanno vista protagonista di una storia complessa attraverso un continuo processo di sviluppo tecnologico e industriale, le aziende che progressivamente sono confluite sotto il marchio odierno, hanno progettato, sviluppato, costruito, consegnato e supportato una volta in servizio, circa 30.000 velivoli di tutte le categorie, sia civili che militari, entrati in servizio con forze armate, compagnie aeree, operatori privati, in tutto il mondo.
