ELVO becomes member of the Hellenic Manufacturers of Defence Material Association (SEKPY)

The reformed ELVO 2020 S.A reinforces Its participation and contribution to the Greek production of defence material through its membership in SEKPY.

This development comes a year and a half after the transfer of the company to the consortium of the new shareholders, following an international tender, which put an end to the 6-year inactivity that the company had fallen into. The initiatives undertaken by the new management since February 2021, the restarting of the factory’s operations, as well as its certification based on the new international standards, have made ELVO’s membership of the Association not only possible, but imperative as well.

“ELVO’s SEKPY membership is a positive message and development. On the one hand, it confirms the rebirth of a brand name with unique potentials; on the other hand, it strengthens the Greek production of defence materials presence and footprint at a time when we all understand its importance in matters of national security and consider its overall contribution to the country’s development path. These are key points that the Association insists on highlighting and reminding at every given opportunity, promoting the greatest possible self-sufficiency of the country, as well as the development of know-how with a Greek trademark,” commented the President of Association’s Board of Directors, Mr. Rozolis.
