Meprolight Ltd., a member of the SK Group and manufacturer of electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, self-illuminated sights, and Laser Range Finder systems for military, law enforcement, and civil applications, has completed construction of two advanced maintenance laboratories for electro-optical products for an undisclosed Latin American Army.

In a ceremony held at the beginning of August 2017, the already-operational electro-optical laboratories that were set up to maintain MEPRO MOR and MEPRO NOA NYX sights as part of a large order of these products were officially inaugurated. Teams from the Latin American Army underwent extensive training both locally and in Israel to prepare them for the independent handling of all maintenance issues associated with these products.

"We are pleased to announce the successful completion of our flagship project – the transfer of know-how of advanced electro-optical maintenance capabilities," said Assaf Shimron, CEO of Meprolight. "The new laboratories are already operational and enable full independence regarding product maintenance," he added.

Samy Katsav, Chairman of the SK Group, commented, “This project is in line with the Group’s strategy to promote technology transfer to our customers. We have already successfully carried out several projects of this kind in a number of countries, and we will continue to promote additional projects in the future. Knowledge transfer is a Win-Win situation for all parties, allowing our customers the independence, flexibility, agility and the highest level of maintenance of our products, which brings even greater satisfaction regarding our products and services."
