Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia hosts LAND 121 3B Supplier Days
Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia (RMMVA) hosted a series of Supplier Days in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin, Melbourne and Sydney in November 2013. The response has been overwhelming with more than 500 companies attending Australia wide. These Supplier Days provided Australian industry with an opportunity to engage with RMMVA and some of its key subcontractors in order to explore opportunities relating to the LAND 121 3B defence project.
The Commonwealth of Australia has contracted with RMMVA to supply and support mission systems for a medium heavy wheeled logistic vehicle capability consisting of approximately 2,500 vehicle systems and approximately 3,000 modules under LAND 121 Phase 3B.
As RMMVA Managing Director Peter Hardisty explains, “RMMVA, in close cooperation with our key subcontractors, is actively engaging with Australian industry to enable as many Australian companies to be part of this exciting program as possible.”
“The products and services we are seeking include the design, development and production of specific hardware such as modules, some vehicle bodies, sub-systems and components as well as project management and systems integration, developmental, test and evaluation work”, adds Hardisty.
RMMVA is working together with the respective State Governments, DMO Business Access Offices and Australian Industry Associations to involve Australian industry in this ground breaking defence project.
Rheinmetall is one of the world’s leading suppliers of defence technology, including wheeled and tracked military vehicles, weapons, ammunition, simulation solutions, command and control technology, force protection systems and sensor technology.
