September the 19th, 2023 – The Croatian Đuro Đaković Group has contracted an impressive 3.8 million US dollar job which involves the Ministry of Defence.
As Mladen Miletic/Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the successful domestic Đuro Đaković Group released the above information recently via the Zagreb Stock Exchange. It was revealed that Đuro Đaković Special Vehicles has entered into a cooperation agreement related to the delivery of Bradley armoured vehicles in the value of 3,824,918.75 US dollars.
It involves the Croatian Ministry of defence
“This contract was concluded for the purpose of implementing the first phase of the Bradley vehicle delivery project to the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Croatia,” the company’s announcement stated. This confirmed the long-awaited conclusion of a very large deal, and that the story will continue to head in that direction,” Defence Minister Mario Banožić announced back during this spring.
“The American company is ready to give Đuro Đaković a chance, and I expect that the contract will be signed,” Banožić announced back in June, adding that this very well respected company from Slavonski Brod would become a regional hub for the maintenance of these types of vehicles. The Minister of Defence also indicated at the time that he expects the first Bradley vehicles to arrive in the Republic of Croatia in the second half of the year.
Đuro Đaković recently got new owners, and success has followed
This newly contracted business venture is a firm confirmation and continuation of the successful rise of this Croatian company under the leadership of its new owners. Last year alone, production in the wagon manufacturing segment very significantly increased. On top of that, the unfortunate outbreak of war following the shock Russian invasion of Ukraine that still looms over the rest of Europe opened up significant space for this enterprise in the military segment as well.
Đuro Đaković was otherwise among 25 companies from across the European Union (EU) that made contact with representatives of the American company BAE Systems, which manufactures Bradley armoured vehicles in the Belgian capital of Brussels.
