AUTOFLUG took another strategic step in the development of its international sales network last month when it launched a long-term partnership with Yepsan SSH. Under the initial contract, YEPSAN SSH will be the exclusive distributor of all AUTOFLUG products on the Turkish market. “YEPSAN will have access to advanced AUTOFLUG technology, and together, we will be able to develop the Turkish market with innovative safety solutions”, said Andreas Sedlmayr at the official signing of the contract in Ankara on April 7.
In the longer term, however, the partnership will not be limited to distribution by Yepsan. A second contract is gradually to establish some aspects of production at Yepsan sites in Turkey. This will not only offer logistical advantages, it will also create value added in Turkey – which could be extremely useful in meeting offset requirements, not least as regards the aviation sector. Yepsan already has manufacturing expertise in metalworking and also in textiles; the latter is for example key to production of AUTOFLUG GmbH’s leading global textile safety seat solutions.
“Growing demand for our safety solutions, in particular in the aviation and ground vehicle sector, is challenging us to find efficient solutions. Our top priority is constantly to adapt our products to the needs of our users so that we can offer maximum safety and the best possible protection.” YEPSAN already meets the strict military and aviation quality requirements and is therefore an ideal partner for rapidly achieving long-term goals.
