This company was founded on May 1,1956, becoming established at Ottobrunn bei Munchen in 1958. Until January 1,1965 was known as Bolkow Entwicklungen KG, adopting above title following acquisition of a one-third interest in the business by Boeing. Bolkow held a 25% interest in Entwicklungsring Sud (EWR). Aircraft produced include the Bo 207 four-seat light aircraft, BO 208 C Junior (a license-built version of the Malmo MFI- 9) and the BO 105 five-seat light helicopter, which featured a rigid main rotor of glassfiber-reinforced plastics. This helicopter continued in production under the designation MBB BO 105, signifying that it was then built by Messerschmitt-Bolkow-Blohm, and most recently it has become a Eurocopter product.
