Nexter strengthens Danish defence industry ties

23rd May 2014 - 11:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Nexter Systems has placed an order with TenCate for its Advanced Armour solution, marking a significant step in Nexter’s plans to diversify its supply base into Denmark as it competes for Armoured Personal Carrier (APC) and artillery procurement projects currently underway in the country.

The announcement of the order came as the French Ambassador in Denmark, François Zimeray, visited TenCate Advanced Armour’s facilities in Vissenbjerg.

The order will see TenCate supply an armour system solution engineered to fit the Nexter vehicle platform to protect vehicle occupants against the effects of blasts, fragments, and projectiles.

Nexter’s industrial cooperation strategy has seen it place orders with a large number of Danish suppliers since the beginning of 2014, including Multicut, Linak, Weibel, Prodan and AKS. Additionally, the company has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreements with partners Hydrema, Systematic and Terma as part of ongoing projects.

According to a company statement released on 20 May, Nexter is confident, as illustrated by its business relationship with TenCate, that its developing cooperation with Danish defence industry will be mutually beneficial and that it will lead to significant access for Danish industry to Nexter’s French and export markets.
