Taurus is an exhibitor at the World Defense Show (WDS) 2024, one of the main global exhibitions in the defense sector, taking place from February 4 to 8 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
At the event, the company, a Brazilian multinational and one of the world’s leading arms manufacturers, is exhibiting its broad portfolio of products and launches aimed at police and military forces at a stand located in a prominent area. Taurus is also present at a stand in the Brazil Pavilion, organized by ABIMDE (Brazilian Association of Defense and Security Materials Industries), together with other Brazilian companies in the sector, promoting the technological and innovation expertise of the Defense and Security Industrial Base (BIDS), fostering strategic partnerships and boosting business opportunities for Brazil.
Saudi Arabia is an important and prominent market, being on the list of the five largest military expenditures in the world and considered one of the countries that invests the most in defense. It is no coincidence that the region is part of Taurus’ strategic plans for expansion in the Middle East and local production.
Taurus has had a regional office in Saudi Arabia since 2022 and, in December 2023, signed a non-binding Term Sheet to study the feasibility of setting up a joint venture in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with Scopa Military Industries.
“Taurus’ commercial strategy continues to focus on opportunities in international markets, beyond the United States, the largest arms market in the world and consecutively for Taurus. The choice of Saudi Arabia and the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) region is in line with the strategic plan to expand business and increase participation in the Middle East,” says Salesio Nuhs, Global CEO of Taurus.
