BAE Systems Land Systems South Africa and Iveco Defence
Vehicles have announced they have signed a teaming agreement to pursue the Vistula project for the South African Army.
This co-operation will bring together the expertise of two leaders in the defence industry. Both BAE Systems and Iveco have a global presence and experience, which, combined with an
appreciation of local needs, enables them to provide a strong service network, easy-to-repair technology, and prompt spare-part availability worldwide.
The intent of both companies is to generate consistent engineering and manufacturing work within South Africa. Both companies already support the South African Army vehicle fleet.
“This is a very positive cooperation for us,” said Johan Steyn, managing director Land Systems South Africa. “The track record of these two companies will ensure a strong partnership.”
“We are delighted to join with BAE Systems for this project,” added Flavio Marchesoni, S&M director at Iveco Defence Vehicles. “This cooperation will fully exploit the potential of our experience achieved through more than 70 years in the military trucks business.”
