Boeing and European defense group Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa have partnered to pursue business opportunities in the Polish Armed Forcesâ€™ technical modernization plan.
Boeing and PGZ member companies will collaborate to maintain defense systems, combine Polish systems with Boeing technologies, integrate PGZ companies into Boeingâ€™s supply chain, and conduct defense research and development activities under the agreement, Boeing said Wednesday.
â€œPGZ member-companies are diverse and have the potential to play an even larger role in the international aerospace and defense industry,â€ said Jeff Kohler, Boeing’s vice president of international business development for defense, space and security.
â€œCollaboration opportunities available through Boeingâ€™s expansive military, commercial, security and space portfolios can turn potential into reality for PGZ,â€ added Kohler.
