Oshkosh Defense has established a JV in Saudi Arabia with the Al Tadrea Manufacturing Company.

The US manufacturer holds a minority stake in the JV, which is intended to develop local expertise in Saudi Arabia by becoming a prime contractor for tactical wheeled vehicles.

Initially, the JV will focus on creating a Saudi-made truck based on the Oshkosh 4x4 Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (pictured). Saudi engineers will develop, manufacture and integrate an armoured cab, vehicle body and other components.

John Bryant, president of Oshkosh Defense said on 13 May during a virtual ceremony to mark the formation of the JV: ‘Oshkosh Defense and TMC have been working closely together for over two years through transfers of technology and capabilities to bring this joint venture to fruition.’
