Projects to be Started After IDEF Also Discussed
From TTAF Defence’s point, the fair was very efficient, and it is one of the companies which utilised the fair actively for holding meetings and making contacts. The company had been involved in new projects with 2 of its current clients, and the fair provided an opportunity to discuss the latest developments of said projects as well. TTAF Defence presented its offers, and after the fair, started preliminary work.
Exports were one of the company’s agenda topics as well. TTAF Defence sees Africa and Asia as key export markets after 2022. The company officials met with high level delegations from these regions and commenced efforts to have close contacts with the countries it met, between December-February.
Ergün İşgör, General Manager of TTAF Defence added the following on the activities of the company during the fair: “We held fruitful talks with our old clients with falling business volumes between us, as they wished to meet, and we have seen some improvements with said companies.
For localisation, we filed an application to ASELSAN for manufacturing some sub-components that we can produce. We were able to meet with relevant engineers about this project.
In the fair, we realised companies outside of Ankara did not have enough knowledge about us, even the companies we are having intense business relationships with. The fair was a very good opportunity for our recognition as well. Most importantly, university students paid a lot of attention to our company.”
