ASELSAN, the apple of the eye of the defense industry, entered the field of financial technologies. The name ASELSAN will now take its place in this arena, which includes various topics from new generation banking technologies to payment recording devices. The company will share its experience at every stage of engineering, from design to production, from sales to after-sales support, with the financial sector. During this sharing, instead of focusing only on its technological power in the field of defense, it will also contribute to the development of the local supplier ecosystem in the field of financial technologies by maintaining the priority of localization and nationalization as always.
“WE WILL REFLECT OUR EXPERIENCE”
ASELSAN Chairman of the Board and General Manager Prof. Dr. Haluk Gorgun said, “We set out for Turkey’s struggle for technological independence 46 years ago. In addition to our leadership in the field of defense, we also responded to the needs of our country in a timely manner and with superior quality in many civilian areas, from health to transportation. With this sense of responsibility, we will continue our technological investments without slowing down, as we have done so far. We are pleased to add a new ring to our investments in this field by entering the field of financial technologies. We will reflect all kinds of experience we have gained in defense technologies to the field of financial technologies.”
$130 MILLION CONTRACT
Stating that they have carried the company’s vision of localization and nationalization to every field they operate, Gorgun said, “It is a tremendous development for us to be a part of keeping an important resource in our country by producing products and systems already supplied from abroad in the field of financial technologies. We are very proud to enter the field of financial technologies and to be their solution partner with the $129.7 million contract we signed.”
