DSM Dyneema and FNSS sign letter of intent for future cooperation on lightweight, high-performance armor protection solutions
The Letter of Intent was signed by Dirk Louwers, marketing manager Life Protection, EMEA, DSM Dyneema, Bastiaan de Koning, director sales, EMEA, DSM Dyneema, Nail Kurt, general manager and CEO, FNSS, and Reed McPeak, assistant general manager, FNSS. It was signed in the presence of The Netherlands Minister of Defence, Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, at the DSM Dyneema booth #284A in Hall 2.
The letter demonstrates the strong and longstanding collaborative relationship between The Netherlands and Turkey, and underscores DSM Dyneema’s commitment to FNSS as a valued customer. Both companies will concentrate on the development of improved armor concepts, mainly spall liner systems, to meet market demand for cost efficiency, high performance, low weight, and enhanced design flexibility for vehicle manufacturers. They will explore the commercialization of improved armor designs with the Dyneema material in FNSS vehicles for Turkey’s domestic and export markets.
