IN THE SHOW
TO THE CONGRESS
« We have been taking part in the ADS Show ever since its first edition. For us, it is the benchmark show for everything related to military support. In particular, it provides the opportunity to present all our products and services to users and decision-makers in France and abroad, who are always strongly represented. The presence of the Show on our doorstep fits in with our determination to reinforce our military support activities in Mérignac. This strategy was initiated in 2014 and is being pursued within the “Piloting Our Future” transformation plan launched by our President in 2016, which aims at transferring the military support business from Saint-Cloud to provide a better response to the expectations of users and improve our efficiency. That encompasses the training of export customers, support engineering, technical assistance, supply of spare parts and repairs. This Show is totally in line with the approach launched by our President. »

BOSE CATEGORY BUSINESS MANAGER - AVIATION
2016 was the first year Bose participated at ADS - World Military MRO Congress in Mérignac, exhibiting together with a France based Bose Contract partner. We were so impressed with the high quality contacts, as well as professional organization, that we intend to make this event a permanent commitment in our exhibition schedule. We were able to meet with, and present our technologies to, key decision makers in the French Defense Force, all in one place in just two days! Further developing our business with the French Defense Force is a strategic goal and ambition for Bose, ADS - Mérignac is the event for us to do so.
Patrick Schutterop, Bose Category Business Manager - Aviation
« We have participated in the ADS Show ever since the first time. For our members, it has become a must. It provides them with the opportunity not only to benefit from a high level of visibility with all the regional, national and international players, but also to meet the decision-makers in the area of aeronautics and defence. It also gives our cluster the chance to pursue our missions of support of the SMEs in the sector to develop their skills and their competitiveness on the national and international scale. »
Patrick Désiré, General Manager of the Aerospace Valley Cluster
« The SIMMAD is responsible for ensuring the optimal availability of the country’s aircraft at all times and in all places, thanks to its mastery of all the logistical, technical and contractual aspects, at the best price over time.
The ADS 2016 Show was an ideal event to inform and develop the network of players, including the SMEs, benchmark industrialists and the various State entities.
This unique event provides the armed forces, the MCO community and in particular the SIMMAD with the opportunity to enhance the expertise of their personnel.»
