KMW, WFEL and RENK announce a contract to jointly produce gearboxes and control units for the UK Boxer MIV programme.

KMW and WFEL have awarded a gearbox subcontract for the UK Boxer Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) programme.

Horstman UK, a subsidiary of RENK, will supply more than 250 angular gearboxes and control units in a £12 million ($16.68 million) contract.

RENK has produced all the angle drive gearboxes for the Boxer vehicles to date. Horstman will produce the gearbox products before they are supplied to WFEL’s new Boxer manufacturing facility in Stockport.

Horstman produces armoured vehicle suspension systems and gearboxes for main battle tank turrets, tactical 4x4s and combat engineering vehicles. The company previously supplied suspension systems for German Puma IFVs.

More than 800 Boxer vehicles are in operation with Germany, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Australia and (ultimately) the UK.
