We have achieved what we have on our way to this goal by implementing our strategic plans with determination. The principles that our company holds have guided us in achieving these historic successes. Throughout this epic journey, we have never deviated from our fundamental principles of honesty, justice, transparency, and having a solution-oriented mindset. These principles are the cornerstones of CANiK and the values that guide us on our path. Our vision is to become a global brand regarding the small arms and defence sectors by representing the pinnacle of innovation, quality, and smart solutions in the global arena. Our mission is to create highly efficient smart processes as a brand that designs, develops, and produces firearms and defence products, services, and solutions of the future in the small arms and defence sectors, and to invest in talented human resources so that we can stay one step ahead forever more.”
