Saab At The Singapore Airshow 2016

Defence and security company Saab is proud to attend the Singapore Airshow from 16 to 21 February 2016. Saab will make several important product and programme announcements at the show.

The Singapore Airshow is the first major exhibition for the aerospace and defence industry in 2016 and an event of great strategic importance for Saab. The Asia Pacific region, with Singapore as one of its hubs, is a dynamic and fast-growing market where Saab sees great opportunuites across all of its product domains. At the Singapore Airshow 2016 Saab will demonstrate how its advanced technology and innovative thinking pushes the boundries to break through the thought barrier.

“From India to Australia Saab is known as a reliable partner and a source of strategic defence, security and aerospace technology. We stand proudly alongside all of our existing customers in the Asia-Pacific region, and we see great potential to do new business in many more places. The Saab product range speaks for itself; from the Gripen multi-role fighter to advanced submarines like the A26; from our complete radar portfolio on land, sea and air, to our superior ground combat systems; not forgetting our long expertise in command and control and network-powered defence. There is no other company that can match our range of proven, integrated solutions. We are the partner of choice for smart, sustainable progress,” says Dan Enstedt, President, Saab market area Asia Pacific.

Saab is enjoying a sustained period of expansion. There are few, if any, other defence, security and aerospace suppliers that can deliver the range of effective and efficient products found in the Saab portfolio. Singapore is the perfect place to demonstrate Saab’s products and capabilities to key customers from the Asia Pacific region and around the globe.

"Saab has been active in Singapore for the past 30 years, supplying the Republic of Singapore Armed Forces with advanced high-tech solutions like submarines, RBS 70 air defences, Giraffe radar systems and more. We are proud of what we have achieved here and we will support our Singaporean customer for another 30 years to come," says Anders Dahl, Vice President, head of Saab Singapore.
