Patria, Volvo team for Swedish opportunities

7th February 2012 - 08:52 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Patria has announced that it has signed an exclusive teaming agreement with Volvo Group to offer new concepts and partnerships related to comprehensive life-cycle support services for the Swedish Armed Forces' possibly upcoming needs.

Patria is in the process of delivering 113 AMV 8x8 armoured wheeled vehicles to the Swedish Army in addition to the about 200 Patria XA 6x6 vehicles already in service there. Volvo Group is a long-term supplier of vehicles to the Swedish Armed Forces and has an extensive network of service and maintenance facilities.

A good example and a forerunner of public and private partnerships in the defence support sector is Patria's subsidiary Millog in Finland. Millog has been already for three years a strategic partner of the Finnish Defence Forces providing life-cycle support services including a wide range of expert services, such as maintenance, repair, technical support, and system configuration management. The partnership arrangement set up for the Finnish Defence Forces' logistics operations has proven to be efficient and profitable for all stakeholders. According to Patria, this concept offers great opportunities for the public defence sector to reduce costs.
