Danish Minister of Defense visits ADBC member Terma North America Inc.

Following a visit to Warrior Week in Virginia, the Danish Minister of Defense Claus Hjort Frederiksen had a series of meetings in Washington D.C., and the Minister used the occasion to visit ADBC member Terma North America the 5th of June, on the Danish Constitution Day.

Terma North America Inc. is a subsidiary company of the Danish Lystrup-based defense and security company Terma, which employs around 1,300 people worldwide. Terma is the biggest Danish Defense Corporation with an annual sale of 1.7 billion DKK ($260 million USD).

Terma North America was established 14 years ago at the Royal Danish Embassy in Washington. Terma North America has since grown considerably and currently employs around 70 people nationwide, with offices in Warner Robins, GA, Ft. Worth, TX, Suffolk, VA, and Arlington, VA.

The President and CEO of Terma North America Steve Williams used the occasion to inaugurate Terma North America’s newly expanded offices in Crystal City. The venue is to serve as an Innovation and Collaboration Center, where Terma can demonstrate its solutions and work with partners – in Denmark and the U.S. – to create new synergies

Steve Williams on the new center: “The Terma Innovation and Collaboration Center demonstrates the capabilities across all of Terma, how we collaborate with our industrial partners, and our vision of future solutions, and how we can continue to help address our customer’s most pressing challenges.” He continues:

“The Center will also be a place for U.S. and Danish companies to collaborate, in a similar fashion to the larger Terma R&D Center to be opened later this year in Atlanta.”

Terma North America was joined by representatives from U.S. business partners to put focus on U.S.-Danish industry collaboration. The event was also used to discuss how the Defense companies could contribute to and aid wounded veterans.
