Armor Holdings Gets $50 Million Army Deal For Armored Cabs

Deal is from  Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command.

Armor Holdings, a manufacturer and distributor of military vehicles and vehicle armor systems, said Friday it received a contract modification valued at up to $50.3 million for production of Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle (FMTV) armored cabs from the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM).

The company said the contract is to produce Low Signature Armored Cabs (LSAC), which urgently addresses the need for heavy armored vehicles in theatre. Work will be performed in 2007 by the Aerospace & Defense Group at its facilities located in Fairfield, Ohio and Sealy, Texas.

Robert Schiller, President of Armor, said, "We are grateful for the opportunity to increase the number of armored FMTVs in the U.S. Army's inventory. We also are pleased that our operations can meet this additional need without impacting our ability to meet increasing production requirements for the FMTV, MRAP, and other major vehicle armoring programs."
