Airbus SE has finalised the sale of Plant Holdings Inc, which holds Airbus DS Communications, to Motorola Solutions after receiving the required regulatory approvals.

According to Airbus, the divestment is part of the “portfolio reshaping” within the Airbus Defence and Space Division which was announced in September 2014.

Airbus DS Communications is a leading provider in North America of command centre software for fielding emergency calls. Figures released by the company state that it generated revenues of more than US $100 million in 2016.
