Stating that the factory started production recently, Varank continued his words as follows:

Konya is a city that can make serious exports and where the industrial sector operates very intensively. In order to make Konya's industry more value-added, ASELSAN and the industrialists in Konya came together and established ASELSAN Konya. This factory went into production, and when it works at full capacity, it was opened to produce stabilized tower systems that Turkey needs. Currently, our friends continue their activities. We just conducted a test of a stabilized tower system.

Emphasizing that Turkey is making a very serious breakthrough in the field of defense industry, Varank said that it is making a great effort to take its industry further by ending domesticity rates and foreign dependency in critical technologies.

Explaining that since the first establishment of ASELSAN Konya and KTEB, they have made a great effort to help Konya industrialists in all processes, Varank said:

“Both our non-governmental organizations and Konya Metropolitan Municipality have made a great effort here, and thanks to this, we are here in the ASELSAN Konya Weapon Systems factory. We hope to move this region further. We want this to be a region where more value-added products can be produced, where R&D can also be done in high value-added production. In this sense, we will have new good news for our city and country in the coming period. We have declared before; TÜBİTAK will come to this region. By expanding the ecosystem here, together with Konya ASELSAN and our other companies, we will bring to our country an industrial zone where high technology is developed, produced and exported to the whole world from here.”

During his visit, Minister Varank was accompanied by Konya Governor Vahdettin Özkan, Konya Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Uğur İbrahim Altay and Organized Industrial Zones Supreme Organization (OSBÜK) President Memiş Kütükçü.
