GOOD NEWS!!!: PH firm partners with US corporation to set up weapons assembly in Bataan


This is a historic moment for the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and to the Philippines in general.


Philippine company Asia Defense and Armament Corporation (ADAC) has set up a partnership with US-based Daycraft Systems Corp. to operate a weapons assembly facility inside the Freeport Area of Bataan (FAB).


The two corporations signed a joint venture agreement last May 21 in an effort to supply customized equipment for the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and other unformed officers of the Philippine government.

The local production and delivery of this equipment are in line with the Self-Reliant Defense Posture program that seeks to allow local industry and labor to benefit from defense expenditure. Likewise, any excess in the production of the local facility should be exported for sale to various NATO and ASIAN countries.


ADAC has been dealing in the manufacture and trade of defense and security-related products in the Philippines which includes, defense robotics, unmanned aerial vehicles, cybersecurity systems, and ammunition equipment.

Daycraft, on the other hand, is a manufacturer of defense products for safety and peacekeeping based in Arizona, USA. Its products have evolved from mechanical weapons controlled directly by peacekeepers to externally, electrically powered weapons controlled remotely, keeping the peacekeepers behind armored protection.


“We are excited to be forming a joint venture alliance with ADAC for the ASEAN region, and we know we have the right partner to focus on improved customer support and services, to continually provide better client relationships along with joint development, licensing, and sales of new products into the region”, said Richard Day, Founder & CEO of DWS. Mr. Day and his team have over 50 years of combined experience in electronics manufacturing and weapon systems controls business,” said Daycraft president Chad Day.


The partnership aims to have the facility fully operational not later than the fourth quarter of 2022.
