Horstman will collaborate with Soucy Defense on developing new-generation suspension systems fully adapted to Composite Rubber Track, which will increase the overall performance of the track system as well as the vehicle. The aim is to be able to offer potential customers with a fully integrated mobility solution to meet specific customer needs.

“I see this as a strategic collaboration which will increase the value proposition to our customers, whilst risking mobility integration from the outset. Working collaboratively from the design phase will ensure a turn-key solution for our actual or potential customers” says M. Lalonde, Vice-President Defense Division.

“Both companies have a long history providing solutions independently to customers around the world. With future tracked vehicle programmes coming into view it has become clear that we can provide integrated solutions to meet specific customers’ requirements and leverage our experience and skills. We are looking forward to working together in the future.” Says Ian Pain CEO Horstman Group.
