In addition to promoting its full range of armored vehicles, Turkish Company Otokar provides information about its flexible business model, which incorporates technology transfer and the local-made production of armored vehicles.
Serdar Görgüç, Otokar General Manager said, "We have been able to gain significant experience about responding to the needs and expectations of the Latin American market through the military vehicles currently serving here. In addition to promoting our wide product range during the exhibition, we will also look for opportunities to establish industrial cooperation supporting a stronger presence in the region. In this respect, we are willing to evaluate the transfer of technology and local manufacturing projects where Otokar has a well-established and proven track record.”
For many years, the Turkish Company Otokar developed, designed, and manufactured different types of wheeled including 4x4 URAL, COBRA, COBRA II, KAYA II, ISV, ARMA 6x6 and ARMA 8x8, as well as tracked vehicles including the Tulpar family.
