We are proud to say that we have been involved and keep up our involvement in many military programs from ground vehicles to air/space applications from the design stage to their serial production for years. We are helping and serving our customers from a single contact to many; from copper to fiber; and from simple to hybrid complex connection interfaces based on our power of experience, expert team collaboration and our reliable relationship with our manufacturer partners.

Defence Turkey: Over the years, what activities have you performed in Turkey and what are your future plans for Turkey?

NDM: PEI Genesis started to serve the Turkish Market since the local defense industry in Turkey evolved.  Actually, we inaugurated our liaison office in Istanbul in 2011.

Due to the nature of our rapid growth in the market, we have expanded our team from 4 to 7 people over the years. Thanks to the professional management of our Country Manager, Mr. Sezgi Dinçer, we are planning to invest and continue to grow in the Turkish Market in the future as well. 

Defence Turkey: Could you please inform us about the cooperation between Turkish Defense Industry Companies?

NDM: We are proud to say that in the span of 6 years we have not only worked with main contractors like STM, Aselsan, Roketsan, Havelsan, HTR, TAI, TEI, Otokar, BMC, Nurol Makina, FNSS, Katmerciler, Anadolu Shipyard, Dearsan, Sedef, RMK Marine, but also we have worked with their subcontractors and partners under the control of SSM. 

We are also serving the design requirements of Technology Development Centers in the Universities and Industrial areas and we are providing consultancy with our expertise to TÜBITAK divisions in Turkey.

Defence Turkey: Could you please share details with us about your R&D activities in the commercial and military aerospace industry?

NDM: We are already in the harnesses and main/sub system interconnections of many serial production programs of the armored ground vehicles (both wheeled and tracked), military avionics and electronics, aviation productions (both rotary craft and fixed winged), fiber, copper and wireless military communication platforms. Most of them started from scratch, we have helped engineers to use the most common, industry-proven, cost efficient, and easy to reach items in their applications/platforms with dimensional calculations, 2D and 3D technical drawings and technical conformance data. Once their designs are frozen, PEI Genesis also grants not only fast and scheduled on-time deliveries but also registers and provides these items both in project life and also as spare parts support.    

Defence Turkey: Finally, is there any message you would like to convey to the readers of Defence Turkey Magazine?

NDM: Today, we would like to thank all of our customers as they perceive us as not a standard supplier but as a trusted advisor and a reliable partner in their territory.
