“To serve and represent the interests of Israel’s Aerospace manufacturing firms with a single unified voice in the international markets.”
Welcome to the Israeli Aerospace Manufacturers Federation
The IAMF is the network for the international promotion of the aerospace industry of the State of Israel.
The goal of the IAMF is to strengthen and enhance the Israeli Aerospace Industry international awareness and competitiveness.
To this purpose, the IAMF promotes the national and international profiling of the State of Israel as key aerospace location and realizes new strategies and measures for the support of the Aerospace Industry.
The State of Israel Aerospace Industry has a great potential that has not yet been adequately acknowledged on the global market. This is why the IAMF initiative was launched by the BrightStar Group, in association with the State of Israel and the Israeli Manufacturers Association.
These strengths of the aerospace industry will be further expanded by the IAMF with targeted measures in the areas of technology transfer, innovation, business location development and settlement.
In addition to this, the IAMF initiative also strives for active technology and knowledge transfer.
The focus of activities lies on added value for companies. The initiative also offers a broad portfolio of services in the areas of network management, project management, information and publicity work.
As a central contact for the economy, politics and the public, the IAMF develops and accompanies pioneering projects for the aviation and aerospace of the state of Israel.
Besides the marketing efforts for Israel as the best location to establish an R&D center– with foreign countries as an audience – the IAMF also offers local Aerospace Industry support to enlarge their footprint on international markets.
The IAMF commitment is therefore focused on the effort to reach out to the following key markets:
Europe: The IAMF, using its network of local representatives, has established a strong link with the major aerospace players and institutions in Europe
Asia: The emerging markets, especially India and China, who claim increasingly greater shares of the global aerospace industry. The IAMF is working diligently to strengthen the relationships with the major Asian and aerospace players and institutions in Europe
North America: North America still remains the world’s largest market for the aviation industry. Concerning the production volume, the USA is featuring the leading-edge locations. The IAMF has very strong relationship with Boeing and all its main subcontractors.
