Following the National Industrial Cooperation policy that Institutions and Armed Forces have been requesting for several years, Escribano Mechanical & Engineering and SASCorp, two leading and unique companies in their respective fields, have decided to join to become the design, engineering and manufacturing solution leader in Spain in the field of Defense.
This union goes beyond an industrial cooperation, since it is a business integration under the same technical directive, which positions them as the sole designer and manufacturer of Defense solutions with a wide range of capabilities and technologies. Its objective is clear: to contribute to position the national Defense industry at the forefront of the sector, becoming the reference technological partner of the national industry and with an ambitious process of internationalization and export.
