ASPİLSAN Enerji, which also sends the lithium-ion cell and batteries it produces abroad, aims to export $ 15 million by the end of the year.
Established in Kayseri in 1981 with the donations of philanthropists, ASPİLSAN Enerji has been fulfilling the long-lasting battery needs of the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and the private sector in the field of energy for 42 years.
While ASPİLSAN Enerji primarily fulfils the energy needs of the TAF with the cells and batteries produced in the lithium-ion battery facility established two years ago with an investment of approximately 1.5 billion Turkish liras, it also exports its products to different countries.
The factory produces lithium-ion cylindrical batteries and Ni-Cd (nickel-cadmium) batteries, as well as approximately 400 types of battery systems in areas such as radios, night vision systems, jamming systems, anti-tank systems, robotic system batteries used in mine scanning and bomb disposal, missile and guidance kits and anti-torpedo systems.
ASPİLSAN Enerji General Manager Ferhat Özsoy said in his statement that they opened up to the world with exports after starting lithium-ion battery production in 2022.
Özsoy stated that after the first battery export was made in Germany and the Netherlands, they also received orders from Middle East countries.
Özsoy emphasized that they have started transforming into a global company. He also said that our marketing processes for our battery packs continue. We think that this will continue to increase in the coming days.
While Özsoy stated that the company had started exports to Eastern European countries, he emphasised that the speciality of the exports was the sale of shelf-type batteries referred to as battery packs. In addition, he claimed that it was understood from the tests that these products have the ability, quality and quality to compete with the world.
Özsoy remarks that the support given by Turkcell and Türk Telekom to the batteries used in the base stations is essential. He added that this situation strengthened their exports.
“We aim to export 15 million dollars this year”
Noting that the factory is a strategic facility, Özsoy said:
“We started to sell our battery, whose intellectual and industrial property rights belong to us, to technologically advanced countries such as Germany and the Netherlands. At this time, we are starting to sell our battery packs. It means that we have not only produced individual cells but we designed technologically advanced battery packs composed of these cells, and we are capable of manufacturing and selling them. In our next roadmap, we aim to reach an export volume of approximately 15 million dollars for this year. In particular, we aim to expand our product sales to various sectors in the export market, starting from our vehicle batteries and extending to mobile phones."
