Otokar participates in FIDAE 2022, on April 5-10, in Chile. During the exhibition, Otokar will promote its armoured military vehicles and turret systems of its own design and production and its capabilities in land systems. Otokar will also provide information about its flexible business model, which incorporates transfer of technology and local manufacturing.

Stating that Otokar is a listed NATO and United Nations supplier Serdar Görgüç General Manager of the company, said, “Currently, Otokar vehicles are actively used in five continents in several different missions. We strongly believe that the performance of our vehicles serving worldwide are the most important reference for our potential customers. Latin America is among our target markets in defence industry. Being the region’s one of the leading exhibitions, FIDAE is particularly important for us to meet our current users and develop partnerships with potential users to increase our presence in the Latin America. We have significant experience about responding to the needs and expectations of this region thanks to our military vehicles currently serving here. During the exhibition in addition to promoting our wide product range, we will also look for opportunities to establish industrial cooperation to localise the support of Otokar vehicles in the region. We are also willing to evaluate transfer of technology and local manufacturing projects where Otokar has a well-established and proven track record.”

Pointing out that Otokar is among the global players in defence industry Görgüç continued: “Our combat proven know-how in land systems and related R&D, engineering and testing capabilities as well as our wide product range puts us at the forefront of the global defence industry. In the last decade, we had allocated 8% of our revenue for our R&D and testing activities. We analyse different needs and expectations of our users, simulate these requirements in house and develop solutions that meet these requirements in the fastest manner thanks to our excellence in R&D, engineering and testing.”
