The Spanish Ministry of Defence has awarded Star Defence Logistics & Engineering (SDLE) the contract for the maintenance of the Leopard 2A4 turrets.

The preventive maintenance will be carried out at the different Army Operating Units, while the corrective and evolutionary maintenance will be fulfilled at SDLE main headquarters, located in Móstoles (Madrid).

The company's facilities are fitted with infrastructure for the repair of complete vehicles. Within this contract, all systems failures will be repaired; obsolescence defaults will be corrected and product improvements will also be done. This contract, with a total budget of 1.5 million EUR, will span until the end of 2021.

During last year, SDLE tripled its workforce, currently having 160 employees. This growth has come from a strong commitment and investment in R&D, which earned the company the recognition of Innovative SME in 2018. SDLE has recently expanded its facilities and opened new Optronics, Electronics and Communications & Security Departments, which join the company's Engineering Department for the development of logistical support software at military operations.
