OHB System AG
OHB – From team of five to global player
Through ambitious expansion work, OHB developed from a ship repair business with five employees to the third-largest provider of aerospace systems in Europe. The vision of company founder Manfred Fuchs – that satellite systems can also be small and inexpensive – played a key role here. With this idea, OHB established itself as an aerospace system provider and remains true to this philosophy even today.
Among other contracts, OHB was commissioned to develop 34 satellites for the European navigation system Galileo, and together with Thales Alenia Space it is supplying the third generation of Meteosat weather satellites. In addition, as a system manager for the asteroid defense mission Hera, under the authority of ESA, OHB is also contributing to protecting the Earth.
