Hakan Öktem said, “As KoçSavunma, we are focused on R&D and innovation activities as a domestic and national defence company due to the difficult conditions caused by the pandemic all over the world. We have received important orders from domestic and foreign countries and signed contracts with many companies in this context. Thus, we are proud to close 2020 as a solution partner sought by defence companies both within Turkey and abroad. We fully believe that this fruitful period will maintain its stability in the upcoming period.”
Öktem noted that their strategic roadmap is to opening up to different sectors and growing in foreign markets. He said, “KoçSavunma evaluated 2020 efficiently in terms of both domestic activities and export opportunities. During this period, we successfully initiated the processes of promoting our products and generating solutions with various ministries and institutions.”

In line with its 2021 strategic goals, KoçSavunma is prioritizing the initiatives in different sectors this year and plans to increase its activities such as participating to expos in global markets.”
