As the COVID-19 pandemic continues around the world, many global defense industry companies are suffering the impact during this uncertain time. Travel restrictions and cancellations of exhibitions and congresses make face-to-face communication with industry peers and customers impossible.
To mitigate the impact and make available a virtual contact platform, we have set up “Ammotec Reloaded”. In this way, we want to stay in touch with our customers, partners and friends and at the same time reach out to new contacts. This platform shall build the (virtual) bridge and allow us to inform you where Ammotec stands and what latest news we have for you. We want to share market insights and throw a glimpse on the developments in the industry.
Thefirst edition was held April 21 and 22. First speaker was Christoph Eisenhardt, CEO of RUAG Ammotec, giving an overview where RUAG Ammotec currently stands in the sales process and thus counteract and clarify rumours. As second topic our R&D team gave an insight into the latest developments. This according to the Olympic motto "Citius, Altius, Fortius" (Faster, Higher, Stronger). After the break the attendees gained an in-depth view of the enlargement of our product portfolio with pistols, rifles, suppressors, scopes etc followed by the presentation about ammunition and packaging tests for safety during transport and storage. Highlight of our first event was Dr. Kogila Balakrishnan's session about the value of industrial collaboration and offsets in the Asian Defence and Security market.
The feedback from the participating guests was thoroughly positive. A second edition is currently being evaluated. Information will follow.
