TEI has assumed a key role in a number of projects to enable accomplishment of the goals set for the national Defense and Aviation Industry in Turkey, including provision of substantial employment opportunities in the industry through the Turkish Utility Helicopter Project launched in 2016 and its investment in Advanced Manufacturing Technologies Building.
TEI continues its steady growth with new national projects also in 2017. On February 07, 2017, the agreement for "Turboshaft Engine Development Project” was executed at a signing ceremony attended by Prof. Dr. Mr. Ismail Demir, Undersecretary for Defense Industries and Prof. Dr. Mr. Mahmut F. Aksit, President and CEO of TEI to build the first national aircraft engine in Turkey.
Pursuing a vision for "having globally competitive, original power systems", TEI will increase its workforce by 20%, making 4 times more contributions than expected to national employment mobilization. To that end, TEI will be providing additional employment opportunities to 374 people in total, including 207 white-collar employees and 167 technicians to increase qualified workforce in Turkey.
