posted on 21/02/2013: 3352 views



Tawazun Precision Industries, or TPI, has joined hands with Germany's leading defence contractor Rheinmetall Defence to manufacture several components for its sophisticated Oerlikon Skyshield C-RAM System.

The Abu Dhabi-based precision manufacturer and a unit the government-owned Tawazun Group, on the third day of IDEX-2013 announced an important partnership with Rheinmetall Air Defence (RAD), a subsidiary of the Germany-based Rheinmetall Defence.

The agreement will see TPI and RAD collaborate for the production of several major components for the Oerlikon Skyshield C-RAM System, a state-of-the-art system designed to defend civilian or military assets from attacks.

TPI already delivered the first components to RAD for implementation in the Skyshield System. This industrial partnership between TPI and RAD entails a joint sharing of expertise and technology between both companies.

It sheds light on TPI's ability to compete in an international market that requires sophisticated manufacturing of precision Air Defence Gun and Fire Control System components. All future Oerlikon Skyshield C-RAM System marketed worldwide will comprise various components manufactured by the UAE-based TPI.

Muatassem Awda, chief executive officer of Tawazun Precision Industries, said: "The UAE is steadily being recognised as an industrial hub, and TPI is playing an important role by contributing to the evolving precision manufacturing industry.” – Khaleej Times
