KoçSavunma continues its activities within the scope of the “Strategic Cooperation Activities” initiated by the General Directorate of Military Shipyards. Within this framework, KoçSavunma has made applications for seven products that meet the needs specified in the “Materials to be Domesticated Under Strategic Cooperation Agreements” list. Upon assessment, the General Directorate of Military Shipyards determined that the application met the criteria, and a ceremony was held in 2019 for the delivery of a letter of intent by Hulusi Akar, Minister of National Defence, to Hakan Başaran, Executive Director of KoçSavunma.
Within the scope of the Strategic Cooperation Activities initiated by the General Directorate of Military Shipyards, it is aimed to develop domestic sources for critical materials and services that are currently procured from abroad. To this end, Strategic Cooperation Agreements are signed with organisations that meet certain criteria in such areas as financial and technical competence, localisation rate, R&D, and production development. Such organisations are granted exclusivity as Sole Sources for the supply of relevant material and services for a period not exceeding 10 years. KoçSavunma is taking firm steps towards becoming one of these organisations.
