Leonardo Finmeccanica has signed industrial and trade partnership agreement with Algerian Ministry of defense last month to establish a joint company to produce light and medium weight category helicopters at an industrial site.

After the completion of the facility and during the early years of activity, the joint company aims to manufacture three different AgustaWestland helicopter types for various uses including transport, medical evacuation, surveillance and control, the company announced Friday.

The joint company will also benefit from a local and international distribution network and aftersales services including a range of repair and overhaul capabilities and training solutions for the Algerian Ministry of National Defence and other customers.

The industrial programme will also support the development of high technology capabilities in the field of aeronautical material production.
