DVD 2018: Jankel achieves direct partnership certification from Mercedes Benz

Jankel, a world-leader in the design and manufacture of high-specification defence, security and NGO protection systems, has announced their achievement of Direct Partnership certification from Mercedes-Benz. The certified Direct Partnership approval comes at the end of an extensive and exhaustive Due Diligence process, where Mercedes-Benz has fully assessed Jankel’s capability to market, sell and support modified Mercedes Benz commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) chassis systems; a significant achievement for Jankel.

This partnership arrangement gives Jankel access to otherwise unavailable levels of technical information and support from Mercedes-Benz, as a COTS chassis system OEM, significantly strengthening the offering to the end-user.

Jankel has successfully developed their business model in recent years to become a company that delivers fully engineered tactical and military vehicles, with the benefits of matching a range of highly capable COTS chassis systems, such as those produced by Mercedes-Benz, amongst others.

Dan Crosby, Commercial Director at Jankel said: “Achieving Mercedes-Benz Direct Partnership certification is a huge step for the whole team at Jankel and one we’re exceedingly proud of. As well as enabling us to offer a range of OEM-approved armoured, tactical and utility vehicles based on modified Mercedes-Benz COTS chassis systems, this certification validates our ability to effectively modify other COTS vehicle types to the same exacting standards.” He added: “We’ve achieved a number of significant milestone successes in recent years and we’re looking forward to building on these, whilst continuing to deliver exactly what our customers need”.
