Germany’s Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) and Achleitner of Austria announce the strategic cooperation between their two organisations, combining the flexibility and innovative strength of a mid-size vehicle manufacturer – Achleitner – with the global reputation, market presence and corporate resources of a leading European defence multinational, RMMV.

As RMMV Chairman Pietro Borgo notes, “The strategic cooperation between RMMV and Achleitner has allowed the Survivor R to be developed utilising the core competences of these complimentary companies, combining the best of each to deliver global customers a class-leading product at a competitive price.”
“We are looking forward to future proposals to extend the strategic cooperation between Rheinmetall and Achleitner, including the development of various special bodies for tactical and logistic vehicles,” declares Franz Achleitner, CEO and owner of Achleitner Fahrzeugbau.
