Otokar Land Systems, the company we established in 2016, has brought us closer to our clients in the region. The company enables us to observe the needs and expectations of our existing and prospective users better. In the last seven years, we accomplished major projects with Otokar Land Systems. In 2017, we signed an important contract for procurement of 8×8 tactical wheeled armoured vehicles and in 2021 we successfully completed deliveries despite the pandemic. Thanks to our superior design, testing and manufacturing capabilities, we quickly respond to the constantly evolving needs and expectations of our users. Today, Otokar also stands out with its technology transfer and local production capabilities. We look forward to a productive exhibition period and hope to build on our relations with our existing users at IDEX.”
