31st International Defence Industry Exhibition MSPO (5-8/09/2023) – SUMMARY:
PGM organized a joint stand with an area of 80 m2 for 7 PGM members, under the slogan: “Competences of Polish automotive factories for the defense industry“. It highlighted the possibilities and wide offer of the automotive industry for the defense industry.
7 PGM companies presented their offers at the stand:
At the stand, we also presented the competences of approximately 30 other companies from PGM (outside the group of 7 exhibitors). If people visiting our stand were interested, we gave them index cards of PGM members who matched the product or service profiles they were looking for.
Our stand was visited by several PGM members who did not exhibit at this event, which facilitated the exchange of knowledge and experiences and establishing contacts between group members.
The PGM stand was visited by representatives of many companies, including: PGZ, ROSOMAK, JELCZ, HUTA STALOWA WOLA, PIT-RADWAR, MESKO and others.
On the 2nd day of the fair, we organized a joint dinner for PGM members, attended by over 20 people from approximately 10 companies. In an informal atmosphere, PGM members could get to know each other better and talk.
On the 3rd day of the fair, we held a meeting with ROSOMAK SA. The meeting was attended by representatives of 9 companies – PGM members. The meeting was also an excellent opportunity to talk about the competences of the meeting participants in the context of the needs of ROSOMAK in the development of the 4×4 KLTV LEGWAN light reconnaissance vehicle.
The website Defence24.pl published a substantive article titled “Competences of Polish automotive factories for the arms industry“, in which we presented the offer of the Polish automotive industry for defense, using examples of several companies associated with PGM.
