Worldwide presence

Naval Group, a world-class industrial player, operates in 18 countries including Brazil, India or Singapore. Our objective? Compile a unique offer for each navy.

The Group pursues a responsible and sustainable international development policy based in particular on innovative partnerships concluded within the framework of controlled transfers of technology. By sustainably associating local manufacturers, Naval Group creates thousands of direct and indirect jobs wherever it sets up large shipyards. Finally, it contributes to ensuring that each country acquires its full naval sovereignty.

To enhance its customers' knowledge and place them at the centre of the innovation process, Naval Group has created centres of excellence for experimental research and development (R&D) in Australia, Belgium and Singapore, and plans on opening more in the future. These centres also make it possible to forge links with research institutes and universities, local authorities and partners and thus enhance the group's reputation locally. Another benefit is to develop collaboration with researchers and academics from other backgrounds, who can provide a different perspective and approach to issues.
