Greek Added Value
It is of great significance for ELVO to achieve a high percentage of Greek Added Value, with main goal the development and assimilation of technology in Greece, which results to the self-reliance of the Armed Forces as well as the economical growth of our country.
This effort is not restricted in the manufacturing of integrated parts in its facilities, but it also expands to the support and development of various subcontractors and suppliers.
The constant efforts, mostly in the field of self-reliant technological development and assimilation of know-how, are intended to maximize the Greek Added Value.
ELVO, giving its products Hellenic character, can actually take advantage of the know-how of well known international companies, and provide the Greek Armed Forces with reliable and best quality solutions in vehicles and spare parts, bringing out the nationally important role that a National Defense Industry should possess in the Greek Army.
In its thirty-year long presence, ELVO has evolved to become a point of growth and support of the local industry, mostly in the nationally sensitive area of Northern Greece.
Hundreds of small or medium industries, with thousands of work force, are working to reinforce ELVO’s production in products designated for the Armed Forces, thus contributing in the increase of Greek Added Value (GAV).
By achieving a high GAV in its products, ELVO not only assists the development of Greek Industry and creates employment conditions, but it also has the ability to provide full technical support to the Armed Forces during peace, but most important in periods of crisis.
