IAROM SA originates from the former National Centre of the Romanian Aeronautical Industry (CNIAR), established in 1968, which was before 1990 the Romanian authority responsible for the central management and co-ordination of all Romanian operators in the aeronautical sector, both manufacturers and R&D institutions of that time.
Following the fundamental restructuring process of CNIAR in 1991, IAROM SA was created through a Government Decision as an aeronautical strategy and policy company, continuing to act as the link between Romanian companies, institutions and authorities in the specific sector. While in the early 1990’s the state still owned a large percentage of IAROM’s shares, in 1997 the company became fully private, with 100% Romanian private capital. Following a policy of strategic financial investments, the fully private company IAROM became major shareholder of some important Romanian companies in the aeronautical and electronics areas, such as:
• the largest Romanian aircraft manufacturer and repair company - AEROSTAR SA Bacau , and
• the military radio-communications and electronics company ELPROF SA Bucharest.
IAROM SA is member of European Communities Aeronautics Research – ECARE
