AgustaWestland opens new office in Seoul
AgustaWestland opened a new office in Seoul, Republic of Korea. The office will strengthen AgustaWestland’s position in the Far East by better serving existing Customers and promoting future business with military, government and commercial Customers. In the Republic of Korea AgustaWestland has experienced an expansion of its market presence with approximately 50 helicopters of various types in service or on order in military, parapublic and commercial roles ranging from naval applications, search and rescue, law enforcement, firefighting and VIP/corporate transportation. This growing presence was supported earlier this year by a major contract for eight AW159 Maritime Operational helicopters for the Republic of Korea Navy, thanks to the heritage established by the Republic of Korea Super Lynx and also includes excellent and solid partnerships with local players such as Firstec Co. and Doodam Systems Co.
