For Thales, Turkey is a key country where competitive and innovation-based products are developed through the means of strategic business partnerships.
A presence for over 25 years
Thales has been present in Turkey for over 25 years, with an office established since 1987, and employs more than 110 people.
Thales has been providing its customers with the most advanced technological solutions available in the Transportation, Defence, Aerospace and Space domains. In 2009, Thales established the company Thales Ulaşım Sistemleri (Thales Transportation Systems) in Turkey. This company delivers installation, site tests and commissioning, software tests, maintenance, project management and training capabilities.
In 2011, Thales took over Yaltes. This take-over constitutes a new phase in the long relationship between Turkey and Thales which began in 2002, when Thales with its Turkish partner created the Joint-venture. Our aim is to strengthen local ties with both large industrial groups and SMEs and continue develop our industrial footprint and local talent pool.
