A BAE Systems-led team, including Hobson Industries and Penman MW Engineering, has won a significant contract to provide Post Design Services (PDS) for the British Army’s Pinzgauer, Land Rover and Light Trailer fleets, which could be worth up to £12m.

The two-year contract will see the BAE Systems-led team, based in Telford, Shropshire, deliver support services to keep the vehicles ready for operational use at all times. There is also the possibility to make significant modifications, including the addition of a Roll-Over Protection System for both Pinzgauer and Land Rover.

Defence Minister, Harriett Baldwin, said:  “This two year contract will ensure our soldiers continue to have the efficient and reliable vehicles they deserve, that can be adapted and maintained to work in any situation from combat training to patrolling theatres of conflict.”

Mark Durning, In Service Support Director at BAE Systems Land (UK), said:  “BAE Systems and our partners were able to offer a cost-effective, low-risk solution for the British Army. We have been successfully supporting military vehicles for decades so we have the expertise to quickly understand technical specifications and develop an effective maintenance plan for any vehicle – even those we did not design and build. We now intend to offer this expertise more widely to other military customers using other platforms.”

Tackling obsolescence and vehicle safety improvements is another key part of the contract, which the BAE Systems led team has experience of delivering on other contracts.
