Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group will provide support for a range of containerised deployable systems for the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) under a new contract announced on 3 July. Marshall will work with partner G3 on the contract, known as Project Amphora.

Project Amphora covers a contractor logistic support (CLS) service that will see deployable shelter systems fully supported to meet operational requirements.

Under this new contract, Marshall and G3 will enable numerous and varied equipments to continue to operate successfully as the UK military moves toward Force 2020. Work includes the support of a number of deployable systems ranging from AFV Power Pack Repair Facilities, to Deployable Engineering Workshops to C4ISTAR working environments.

Steve Fitz-Gerald, chief executive, Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, said: ‘Marshall and G3 Systems have worked very closely developing a unique and highly responsive offering before jointly bidding in a well competed bidding process.
‘The transition period for the contract to providing a full operational capability is very short and as the suppliers of the majority of the UK’s shelter infrastructure, we were able to submit a low risk, fully compliant solution which gave the MoD confidence that operational capability would be achieved in the required time frame at an acceptable cost.’
Peter Gleave, managing director, G3 Systems, added: ‘This contract win reflects the efforts made by both companies to integrate our approach and offer the MoD a true partnership and best value for money. The success of the team proves that SMEs can combine their resources to match the breadth and depth of major prime contractors, whilst retaining the expertise and agility associated with SMEs.’
