Based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, NIMR Automotive's vehicles are in service with several armed Forces and have a reputation for versatility, ruggedness and performance. With a complete in-house design capability and modern production facilities, NIMR provides a total life-cycle solution for clients worldwide. The 440A is already combat proven on various theatres of operations.
NIMR recetnly started a cooperation with a Czech manufacturer, VOP CZ, to market the full range of NIMR vehicles across Europe with a specific focus on Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. NIMR will provide an opportunity through this collaboration to localize production of vehicles at VOP’s plant in the Czech Republic.
As Miles Chambers, Senior International BD & Sales Manager for NIMR explained to Army Recognition at BSDA, the AJBAN Class of 4x4 vehicles provides a multipurpose platform for all military requirements, from utility vehicles to fully protected patrol vehicles. A universal 4x4 chassis is utilized for a common logistic footprint to minimize the burden of training, maintenance and spare parts management. Other model designations are NIMR 420 (a highly mobile 4x4 logistics and utility vehicle), LRSOV (Long Range Special Operations Vehicle), and N35 (a mine-protected multi-pupose vehicle). Ths alows users to have a single fleet for a multitude of requirements whilst ensuring common logistic support and thereby lower the lifecycle cost.
The AJBAN range is designed for exceptional mobility over diverse terrain to maintain a tactical advantage. Unlike militarized or armoured commercial vehicles, the AJBAN range is designed from the ground up and, as a result, has a greater product lifecycle than competitors.
