    The people we all rely on to make the world go round – they rely on Thales.  Thales rely on its employees to invent the future: right here, right now.

    Present in Romania for over 40 years, Thales is expanding its presence in the country by growing its Digital capabilities and by developing a Group Engineering Competence Centre (ECC).
