“We want to show that the Polish defence industry concentrated in PGZ is already taking a significant part in the modernization of the Polish Army,” said Wojciech Dąbrowski, President of the Management Board of PGZ.
“But our ambitions reach much farther. We would like to win successive contracts, for example on the integration and supply of “Narew” short-range air defence system, the construction of “Miecznik” and “Czapla” vessels or the delivery of “Wizjer” and “Orlik” unmanned aircraft systems. We have a huge potential and unique experience. We are going to talk about it during this year’s MSPO,” added President Dąbrowski.

The Strategy contains the mission, vision, values and strategic goals of PGZ in the long perspective. “We are proud of the strategy we developed. It is an ambitious and realistic plan based on the results of profound analyses of the companies belonging to PGZ and to the Group’s external environment.
In order to design the strategy, we employed a completely pioneer solution in the Polish armaments sector: we engaged more than 150 specialists from our companies in the preparation, making use of their experience in the industry. As a result, an ambitious strategic action plan was created and will make PGZ a strong and modern business organisation,” said President Dąbrowski.
