Airbus Helicopters has opened an engineering design office in Poland, expanding its research and development capabilities. The facility, with about 100 engineers, is in the city of Lodz and is the company's fourth such facility. The others are located in France, Germany and Spain. "We see a significant potential from Poland, particularly with its young and skilled engineers who can contribute to a new way of bringing innovation to our products and systems," said Airbus Helicopters President Guillaume Faury. "Our goal is to have Airbus Helicopters Polska directly involved with us in many fields, including organization, processes and design."
