Aselsan aims Asian expansion through Malaysian subsidiary

11 December 2017

Turkish defence firm Aselsan is aiming to position its new subsidiary in Malaysia to support regional expansion, with an initial focus on remote-controlled weapon stations (RCWS).

A company official confirmed to Jane’s on 8 December that Aselsan Malaysia Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary that was inaugurated in July, will pursue both sales and after-sales opportunities in Malaysia and the wider region.

In the first instance, Aselsan Malaysia will look to build RCWS systems in Malaysia for the Malaysian Armed Forces, although the company will also aim to establish the subsidiary as a hub through which it can provide regional sales and support services across a range of systems including naval weapons, communications, radars, electronic warfare, and air defence.
