Texelis resumes production at Limoges facilities

21st April 2020 - 15:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Texelis re-started production at its manufacturing facilities in Limoges, France after a period of reduced operations, the company confirmed in a 21 April statement.

The company has continued to supply the French Army with key spare parts for its operational vehicles throughout the COVID-19 emergency and remains on schedule with its Nexter Serval 4x4 (pictured) programme.

Supply chain contract requirements for Arquus and Alstom are also back in operation.

Jean Vandel, Managing Director at Texelis Defence, said: ‘Despite the current and unprecedented circumstances, our customers, such as the French Army and DGA, rely on us to remain operational and are in need of the critical equipment we produce.’

He continued: ‘We are working to continue production to support them in line with government guidelines, whilst prioritising the safety of all Texelis staff and customers.’

The T750/700 production line, which opened in February, also remains on track to reach full rate production in 2021.
