Plasan - $200 million contract to supply protection to 1,500 Additional U.S. Marines vehicles as part of MRAP Project

Plasan
: 28 January, 2008  (New Product)
Plasan - a global leader in the field of combat-proven ballistic armor solutions for vehicles, airborne platforms and personnel, will supply US firm International Military and Government, LLC with its advanced critical MRAP vehicle protection, for an additional 1,500 armored vehicles. The armored vehicles are to be delivered by the end of July 2008. This is a contract in excess of $200 million.
This contract continues and builds on last June’s order for 1,200 units awarded by the U.S. military to International and Plasan. The previous award sent shockwaves through the rest of the competing group of American companies. “This second order reinforces and affirms the high level of satisfaction by the client, and it helps to secure Plasan’s position as a world leader in ballistic protection,” says Plasan’s CEO Dani Ziv.


Plasan, while enjoying international acclaim for its achievements and rapid growth, recognizes the importance of providing employment not only to workers and suppliers in Israel but to workers and suppliers in every one of its user countries. Plasan purchased manufacturing companies in both France and the U.S. 'We maintain', points out Ziv, “and expand our ongoing cooperation initiatives with local companies in our client countries.” Ziv goes on to say, “This is an integral aspect of our mode of operation. We recognize the need to generate employment and to contribute to the further development of technological know-how and manufacturing capabilities everywhere our systems are sold.”


The ballistic protection solutions which Plasan will provide the Marines under this expanded order build on those which it has already provided to the U.S. military, to the defense and security forces of Israel, and to others worldwide. These solutions are well known for their ability to provide protection and high survivability to both vehicles and the troops in them, in various battlefield scenarios and in particularly dangerous areas of conflict like those experienced daily by the American Armed Forces. These vehicles will be protected and provided with the ability to take part in a broad cross section of mission profiles such as convoy travel, troop transport, IED removal, and close quarter battle.
