Turkey's government has taken over factories and shipyards that had been under control of the military.
It follows a failed military coup last month in which over 260 people died.
Reuters reports the take over is part of a wide ranging shake-up of the armed forces sparked by the violence.
The country's Prime Minister has said the move will focus the military's activities on national security.
Thousands of people including civil servants have been arrested in a massive clampdown following the attempted coup.
