Mr. Oruç thanked the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries for enabling the synergy amongst the institutions and continued, “For sustaining its existence, Aselsan needs to continuously make a profit. Then again, with all its employees, Aselsan assumes a mission beyond just driving profits. I must say that as Aselsan we embraced the understanding of offering innovative and reliable products and solutions with high added value to all our clients, Turkish Armed Forces being in the first place, as a mission. We are aware of the fact that through contributing to reducing Turkey’s foreign dependency in technology and by expanding our brand recognition in a global scale, we can reach our targets and therefore become the source of pride of our country. Undoubtedly, all our solution partners are embracing the very same mission. This approach lies beneath this unique success. We wish to have not only the Aselsan employees but a cluster with hundreds of thousands of members in the background of the products we develop and produce for fulfilling the demands of the Turkish Armed Forces”.
