GDELS signs Czech agreements

5th June 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS) has signed new agreements with Czech Republic companies as it looks to strengthen industry ties for the country’s tracked vehicle programme.

The Czech Republic government is seeking a replacement for its tracked armoured vehicles, and GDELS is offering its ASCOD vehicle.

Five local companies have signed on to work with GDELS should it be successful in the programme. Agreements have been signed with Czechoslovak Group, VOP CZ, Letecké Přístroje Praha, Meopta Systems and Ray Service.

Thomas Kauffmann, vice president international business and services at GDELS, said: ‘With this step, we clearly reconfirm our strong commitment to the Czech Army to supply our ASCOD, one of the most modern and capable infantry fighting vehicles, and to execute our successful strategy of bringing significant benefits to the local industry.

‘The Czech Republic is one of GDELS’s home-markets and we can rely on a vast and proven network of cooperation with various industry partners across the country.’
