We delivered 9 buses that we produced for Izmir public transportation within a short period of 364 months after receiving the order. We exported natural gas buses to Ukraine. We have successfully delivered our 7×4 and 4×8 armored vehicles that we have ordered before.” said.
“Work continues in the field of Defense Industry”
Görgüç also mentioned the developments in technology; “In the field of technology, too, we are focusing on our efforts that will take Otokar to a higher league on a global scale. After Turkey's first hybrid bus, we introduced Turkey's first electric bus in 2011. We continue our work for our autonomous bus, which we announced at the beginning of the year, without slowing down. On the other hand, we continue to work on the development of unmanned and remote-controlled land systems in the field of defense industry.” said.
“We are the focus of the youth”
Otokar, which has been on the "Turkey's Best Employers" list for two years in the studies carried out by Kincentric, has been awarded the title of "Great Places to Work" this year, and Otokar's work in technology, R&D and digital transformation has increased in recent years. Otokar General Manager Serdar Görgüç, stating that more young people are at the center of it, said, “With the strength we have gained from our colleagues since the day we were founded, we have been taking important steps towards becoming a company where mutual trust and respect prevail and participation and diversity are valued. As the Otokar family, we are proud to be entitled to be among the best workplaces and employers as a result of our efforts in the field of human resources. Our company, which carries out its activities in the commercial vehicle and defense industry markets at home and abroad with the goal of sustainable growth with 100 percent domestic capital, continues to attract the attention of young people, especially with its innovation-oriented works. During the online career days we made recently, we encountered intense interest from our young people. In the organization, Otokar's design, engineering and testing capabilities in the commercial and military fields drew attention. As Otokar, we offer our young engineers opportunities where they can improve themselves and turn their dreams into reality.” said.
