Uniform brand identity: Land defence group KNDS completes the legal renaming of its Group companies

KNDS, a leading European manufacturer of military land systems based in Amsterdam, has formally renamed its Group companies Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co. KG and Nexter Systems S. A. with effect from 8 April 2024. Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co. KG now operates as KNDS Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG, Nexter Systems S. A. as KNDS France S. A..

As part of these renamings, the names of the German, French, British, Italian and Belgian subsidiaries of KNDS France and KNDS Deutschland have also been legally adapted. For all other subsidiaries of the Group, the name changes will be implemented by the end of 2024.

The previous brand names had already been replaced by the “KNDS” brand in June 2023. The legal name changes required special coordination with authorities, customers and suppliers. They were therefore implemented in a second step.
