At the SITDEF Conference in Peru Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa presented a wide array of products and services addressed to representatives of armed forces, uniformed units and rescue services.
The stand of PGZ was visited among others by official delegations from Peru under the leadership of Vice Minister Gonzalo Riosa Polastri and Major-General Jorge Céliza Kuonga, as well as representatives of Chile, Columbia, Argentina and Brazil.PGZ also hosted in its pavilion meetings with representatives of the region’s defence industry, among which the Group hopes to find opportunities for cooperation and joint bidding on the markets of Latin America.
“We have a few export projects that are well under way, so our presence in this region is of utmost importance for us.We compete here among others for orders from Turkish, Russian, Serbian and Ukrainian companies.A considerable part of the equipment of armed forces in South American countries is still of Soviet provenance.This gives Polish companies a great opportunity to participate in modernisation programmes and transfer of know-how in the scope of service support provided to the users", said Radosław Domagalski-Łabędzki, Member of the Management Board of PGZ S.A.
Offer of the PGZ Group
During this year’s seventh edition of the SITDEF Conference the PGZ Group promoted among others individual soldier equipment (light machine guns, rifles, optoelectronics, uniforms), which are also of interest to Latin American police formations.Much attention was also paid to the anti-aircraft defence systems, artillery systems, innovative radar technologies, wheeled vehicles and engineering equipment indispensable to support actions of rescue services in the course of natural disasters, which strike this region on a yearly basis.
People visiting our stand had a great opportunity to familiarise themselves with the Group‘s offer.They could inspect among others the MSBS GROT Modular Small Arms System in various configurations from the "Łucznik” Arms Factory in Radom and the SKW-338 sniper rifle from Zakłady Mechaniczne Tarnów. The exhibition also featured ammunition and solutions for anti-aircraft defence systems from Mesko and Dezamet as well as wheeled and tracked vehicles manufactured by Huta Stalowa Wola and Rosomak.
