Menatek Defense Technologies is taking firm steps towards this goal for its professions. I have over 45 years of industrial experience as an engineer, both military and civil backgrounds. I took important roles in all modernisation projects of the Turkish Army. My main objective is to transfer this experience to my kids, maintain its continuity and turn Menatek into a more corporate structure. For this objective; I dreamed, believed, worked hard and dedicated myself. Luckly, my kids took Menatek above my ideals.
