On Thursday, the federal government announced the awarding of two contracts to Mack Defense of Allentown, Penn., for the purchase of new trucks for the Canadian Armed Forces. Through the contracts valued at $834 million, the government will purchase 1,500 medium support vehicle system (MSVS) trucks, 300 trailers and 150 armour protection systems (APS) for the vehicles.

These trucks are the backbone of the Canadian Armed Forces fleet. They do the heavy lifting,’’ said Andrew Scheer, MP for Regina — Qu’Appelle, representing the federal government. “The trucks will be used to get personnel, equipment and supplies to wherever they are needed, whether to assist with domestic operations in response to natural disasters, such as floods, or to support our men and women in uniform in expeditionary operations.”

Scheer said the contracts will create 590 jobs and maintain another 110 jobs across Canada, including 37 positions at Dumur Industries, which was awarded a subcontract by Mack Defense for the production of the APS cabs for 150 trucks.

The first delivery of the trucks and equipment is planned for summer 2017, with completion expected by fall 2018.

Ian Harrison, general manager of the Dumur Industries, said the privately owned company specializes in welding and fabricating ballistic steel components for military vehicles, such as the protective hull of armoured personnel carriers or LAVs (light armoured vehicles).

But the Mack Defense project “is one of the biggest assemblies we’ll ever put together and it will take all of the resources we have today, plus some more, to get this job done,’’ Harrison said.
