Katmerciler, one of the dynamic companies of the Turkish defense industry, achieved another success in the export of armored vehicles. In the statement made by the company to the Public Disclosure Platform (KAP), it was announced that an export contract of $ 6.320.000 was signed with the African country for various armored defense industry vehicles. Deliveries under the contract will be completed in 2022.
Armored export to Latin America country
The Uruguayan army purchased armored vehicles from Katmerciler in line with the needs of its personnel in the UN Ceasefire Observation Force (UNDOF). Uruguay procured Hızır 4×4 TTZA and 4×4 Armored Ambulance from Katmerciler to serve in the Uruguay Mechanized Infantry Unit, which is under UNDOF mission.
Khidr Export to Kenya
Katmerciler signed a $91,4 million contract with the Kenyan Ministry of Defense for a comprehensive package consisting of the tactical wheeled armored vehicle HIZIR and its derivatives. The total amount of the package agreement, which consists of 118 vehicles of HIZIR and its derivatives, as well as spare parts and maintenance, is 91 million 415 thousand 182 dollars. Delivery of the vehicles will start in 2022 and will be completed in 2023. The agreement is Katmerciler's highest export agreement in a single item.
Katmerciler had announced the export of a 2021 million Euro defense vehicle package, which was made to another African country in early 40, in which HIZIR was heavily involved. These successive export moves make a significant contribution to the recognition of the Katmerciler brand and the recognition of HIZIR in the international arena.
