HALIFAX, Sept. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - The Atlantic Defence and Security
Exhibition (DEFSEC Atlantic) is the second largest defence and security
exhibition in Canada. As a prominent member of the Canadian aerospace
and defence sector and a major sponsor of DEFSEC, IMP Aerospace
believes this is the perfect venue to make a significant announcement
regarding its future plans and recent rebranding.
"Over a period of many years, IMP Aerospace has developed a broad range
of world-class capabilities, which have application beyond the
aerospace sector and is, in fact, already providing substantial amounts
of both products and services to naval and land customers. To better
recognize this growing diversity of customers and product applications,
and to bring a stronger focus to the naval and land activities, IMP
Aerospace has been rebranded with the creation of 'IMP Aerospace &
Defence.' This change comes at a time that fits well with current
trends, given the recent announcements by the federal government to
commit significant resources to recapitalizing the Royal Canadian Navy,
Canadian Coast Guard and Canadian Army. Thus, we have reorganized to
better focus on the broader sectors," stated David Gossen, President,
IMP Aerospace & Defence.
"The recapitalization projects outlined in the Canada First Defence
Strategy and the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy include
significant In-Service Support (ISS) activities, as well as
manufacturing requirements for which IMP Aerospace & Defence has
significant strengths and competencies. Its presence across Canada,
and particularly in Halifax, provides a geographic benefit of being
close to both the naval and land communities. To strengthen our
ability to provide effective service and support to these sectors, I'm
pleased to announce that a Naval & Land Services office has been
IMP Naval & Land Services will coordinate integrated solutions utilizing
our expertise in Integrated Logistics Support, Systems Engineering,
Materials Management, high quality manufacturing and In-Service Support
for customers active in the Navy and Land system sectors.
IMP Aerospace & Defence will be exhibiting at the Atlantic Defence and
Security Exhibition in Halifax, September 5 - 7, 2012, at Booth 301,
and looks forward to discussing its broader capabilities.
