Defence and Security

Since the establishment of the firm in 2011, PRIMUS has consistently worked with clients in the field of defence and security. After the Russia’s war against Ukraine, security and defence issues became even more important for both Lithuania and neighbouring countries.

In April 2022, PRIMUS became a member of the Lithuanian Defence and Security Industry Association (LGSPA), thus joining the platform, which is dedicated to the cooperation of companies working in the field of defence and security, in order to optimally use and develop the potential of members through transparent mutual cooperation with Lithuanian and foreign governmental and non-governmental institutions. PRIMUS Managing Partner (International Business) Robert Juodka was elected to the board of the Lithuanian Defence and Security Industry Association and is actively involved in the activities of the association.

PRIMUS is also a long-standing partner of the NGO National Defence Foundation.
