TAI Sets Sights on Cooperation Opportunities in the Polish KRUK Programme

On 3 February, Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) and Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ), held a workshop in Radom with 15 Turkish-Polish defence industry companies, discussing a possible Polish-Turkish cooperation in the KRUK Combat Helicopter Procurement Programme of the Polish Armament Inspectorate.

With long experience in merging and integrating the capabilities of local and global companies, TAI is now exploring the opportunity to cooperate with Polish companies with exclusive qualifications in order to bring the already proven capabilities of the T129 ATAK Multi-Role Combat Helicopter to new heights, through the KRUK programme.

As indicated and underlined repeatedly by TAI- and several other Turkish company representatives from the outset of the KRUK programme, TAI is ready to fine-tune the combat proven T129 platform to satisfy the specific requirements of the Polish end-user, through integrating Polish suppliers into its supply chain.

TAI has accumulated a vast level of experience in working on advanced defence projects with global players. So, from the very beginning of involvement in Poland, TAI ensures that cooperation with the PGZ Group into KRUK and other common projects with a focus on maximising benefits for the Polish defence industry.

TAI is a global player in defence and aerospace industries through its capabilities in design, development, modernisation, manufacturing, integration, and life cycle support of integrated aerospace systems, from fixed and rotary wing air platforms to UAS, and space systems. The widespread product and activity range of TAI is an indication that this newly blossoming cooperation between the two countries will not be limited to the KRUK programme.

PGZ is pursuing a strategy to develop the highest capabilities of the Polish Defence Industry as well as its competitiveness on global markets. Through the passion and vision to become a leading manufacturer of high-technology equipment, PGZ is proved to be a strong business partner in Poland by forming a base for key competencies across the group’s 60+ companies and its 17.500 workforce.
