Pearson Engineering has been selected by the ARTEC consortium as a partner for the potential production of Boxer armoured vehicles in the UK, Pearson announced on 9 February.

Under the contract, the company will work alongside BAE Systems and Thales UK.

Should the vehicle be chosen for the British Army’s Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) requirement, Pearson will be responsible for a significant portion of the UK procurement and assembly of the Boxer vehicle.

The MIV requirement is currently in its assessment phase by the UK MoD.

Craig Priday, MD, Pearson, said: ‘We are delighted to be selected as a key member of the UK team for Boxer. We stand ready to support this important British Army programme and would relish the opportunity to bring armoured vehicle manufacturing back to our world-class facility in Newcastle.’
