Eurocopter Japan, a new Eurocopter entity to better address the Japanese Market

Marignane, 27 October 2005
Inherinting from the long history of Eurocopter Service Japan the customer-minded approach, Eurocopter Japan coordinates the network and the sales activities in Japan, with the distributor EuroHeli, also a member of the Eurocopter Family. Eurocopter Japan has been created to better address present customers’ needs, as well as to tackle business development activities. Stephane Ginoux is Eurocopter Japan CEO, as well as Managing Director of EuroHeli.

With its fleet of 355 helicopters presently in Japan, Eurocopter is holding more than 50% of the Japanese Civil and Para-public market. Some highly exposed customers such as the Japan Defense Agency, the National Police Agency, the Tokyo Fire department along with numerous prefectural Fire Bureaus and Police Departments are used to flying Super Pumas or Dauphin, down the range to the EC135.

Latest successes for Eurocopter in Japan include the sales to the Japanese Defence Agency of the newest version of the Super Puma, the EC225, which will be used for the transportation of the Japanese Emperor and foreign head-of-state.

The 6- to 9-seat helicopter BK117, which was developed jointly with Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI), proved to be a success: More than 60 BK117s are in operation in Japan alone, and more than 450 have been sold in the entire world. Today, building on this successful example of international industrial cooperation, both companies have decided to pursue the venture in the form of a new version, the EC145/BK117 C2, already promising to be a best seller.

Eurocopter is a wholly-owned subsidiary of EADS. EADS is a global leader in aerospace, defence and related services. In 2004, EADS generated revenues of € 31.8 billion and employed a workforce of about 110,000. The EADS Group includes the aircraft manufacturer Airbus, the world’s largest helicopter supplier Eurocopter and the joint venture MBDA, the international leader in missile systems. EADS is the major partner in the Eurofighter consortium, is the prime contractor for the Ariane launcher, develops the A400M military transport aircraft and is the largest industrial partner for the European satellite navigation system Galileo.
