Mack Defense has announced the production of 100th Load Handling System trailer as part of the Canadian Army's Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) - Standard Military Pattern programme.

The trailers are being built at Arne's Welding facility in Winnipeg, under a sub-contract with Link Suspensions Canada, the company that designed and developed the trailer for Mack and the MSVS programme.

The contract includes the production of 318 trailers by March 2019, as well as the supply of spare parts for a further 15 years as part of the programme to modernise Canada's fleet of logistics trucks.

Chris English, managing director, Link Suspensions Canada, said: ‘Link is honoured to have been able to provide this world-class technology to the Canadian Army and to have met all of Mack's deadlines in this very complex programme, which would not have been possible without the commitment of our sub-contractor Arne's Welding rose to the challenge time and again.’
