TOULOUSE, France—Safran Electrical & Power has acquired the aeronautical electrical systems business of Thales. The acquisition includes Thales Avionics Electrical Systems and Thales Avionics Electrical Motors.

“Thanks to these new electrical skills, particularly in conversion, we are adding a new string to the bow of our business portfolio and consolidating [our] leading position across the entire electrical chain,” says Stéphane Cueille, CEO of Safran Electrical & Power. “This acquisition will enable us to bring even more relevant and effective solutions to the market. We look forward to working with the new teams on decarbonizing aviation through electric power.”
