ARTEC, a joint venture between Krauss-Maffei Wegmann, Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles and Rheinmetall Military Vehicles Nederland, has produced the Boxer to meet the requirements of several militaries.

The British Army will take delivery of 623 Boxers (8x8) to meet its Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) requirement, with production having begun in Germany, as well as in the UK at Rheinmetall BAE Systems Land (RBSL) in Telford and WFEL in Stockport.
