Zetor Engineering, s.r.o. was founded in 2014. The company is owned by Zetor, a.s. The main activity and mission of Zetor Engineering is the design and development of vehicles for the defence industry.
The basis for success in this area is a long experience with heavy-duty off-road machines.
The first steps planned by Zetor Enginnering in the defence industry have been development and design activities and projects in relation to highly mobile tracked and wheeled off-road vehicles, designed to meet the very latest requirements goverened by:
- Experiences and analyses concerning the deployment of current vehicles of this type in combat operations
- Prognoses of future conflicts
- The realization that vehicle protection in modern conflicts is not sufficient, and that even significant modernization of currently used vehicles will not fulfil today´s high crew protection requirements
