Vereinigte Flugtechnische Werke
|Fate||Acquired & Merged|
|Predecessor||Focke-Wulf and Weser Flugzeugbau|
Vereinigte Flugtechnische Werke (VFW) was a German aerospace manufacturer formed by the 1964 merger of Focke-Wulf and Weser Flugzeugbau GmbH (Weserflug). The formation of VFW was a natural outcome of the 1961 rocket technology development alliance between the two merger partners and Hamburger Flugzeugbau (HFB) in the Entwicklungsring Nord (ERNO) group.
Afterwards, the ERNO/VFW descendant was active as the space infrastructure division of Astrium contributing parts to the European Ariane space booster system and the International Space Station. In June 2003, this unit became part of EADS SPACE Transportation.
