History of Rolls-Royce


Rolls-Royce (LON: RR) was a British luxury car and later an aero-engine manufacturing business established in 1904 in Manchester, United Kingdom by the partnership of Charles Rolls and Henry Royce. 

The First World War brought them into manufacturing aero-engines. Joint development of jet engines began in 1940 and they entered production. Rolls-Royce has built an enduring reputation for development and manufacture of engines for defence and civil aircraft.

In 1971, the owners were obliged to liquidate their business. The useful portions were bought by a new government-owned company created for the purpose named Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited which continued the core business. Rolls-Royce plc finally returned to the stock market in 1987.

On 14 June 2018, the company announced a restructuring of the business to create three simpler decentralised units (civil aerospace, defence and power systems).

The Market


Rolls-Royce (LON: RR) is a defense and aerospace company. This is a sector in which demand is international, although very unevenly distributed between countries. The ability to defend oneself is a natural desire expressed since the beginning of civilizations. It is of course a sector very prone to innovations, which companies must imperatively take into account in order to remain competitive. As a result, we observe a demand that is renewed with each new innovation.

 It is also a sector very much impacted by the global and national geopolitical context. Indeed, the customers of this sector are not individuals but states, governed by various laws and budgets, which makes it a much more complex market to predict. The current context between Russia and Ukraine, which strongly benefits this market, is one proof.
