Ajax Systems, the Ukrainian developer and manufacturer of professional security systems, is opening its first plant abroad in Istanbul, Turkey.
The new 8300m² plant will produce the entire lineup of Ajax devices, duplicating the current production in Ukraine. Ajax Systems has already started to form a local manufacturing team. At the first stage, it is planned to hire at least 400 people. The plant expects to produce at least 150,000 devices per month.
The company was planning to launch new production facilities abroad long before the war; it is the logical continuation of production scaling.
Aleksandr Konotopskyi, CEO of Ajax Systems, said: “The opening of a new plant in Istanbul is a strategic step planned by the company and aimed at diversifying production facilities. We chose Turkey based on a combination of factors: the availability of manufacturing professionals, infrastructure, the free economic zone conditions, the level of taxes, the quality of contractors, and proximity to our major markets. The new production will strengthen the Ajax product development and accelerate access to new markets.
“We strongly believe that the diversity of talents and cultures creates the best products and solutions. And we have always counted on local teams.”
Ajax Systems has completely resumed the existing manufacturing and product development in Ukraine. The company is actively hiring specialists for the plant and expanding its R&D team. This production facility remains in Ukraine. In addition, the company has its own logistics hub in Poland and develops its local teams in the strategic markets of Spain, Italy, the UK, Germany, France, UAE, South Africa and other countries.
