The company employs more than 90,000 people, with locations in 43 countries and headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia, USA.

We are proud to be a longtime partner of Denmark, supporting and helping protect its armed forces. For more than 20 years, our European Land Systems business unit, part of the Combat Systems group, has delivered hundreds of armored vehicles to the Danish Army. In May 2015, the Ministry of Defense of Denmark announced that General Dynamics’ PIRANHA 5 Armoured Infantry Fighting Vehicle was selected as the new armoured personnel carrier (APC) for the Danish Armed Forces.

In addition, European Land Systems has established Industry Cooperation programs with 40 Danish companies and will generate over 1.7 billion kroner of revenue for Danish industry. These partnerships give Danish industry access to General Dynamics’ global supply chain network, creating new technology development, export and employment opportunities. Long-term industry partners in Denmark include Falck Schmidt Defence Systems, Terma, Nissens and TenCate.

General Dynamics is committed to partnering with Danish industry to help create future export opportunities and ensure long-term industrial growth in the country. We look forward to continuing this strong relationship.
