AAR has entered into an exclusive U.S. commercial and military aftermarket distribution agreement with Robusta B.V. to distribute Robusta’s vehicle mobility products, including Bogstrips. Bogstrips are reinforced mats designed to provide temporary traction to heavy duty vehicles and machinery. Robusta’s Bogstrips product line has been successfully used by the British and Australian Special Forces for almost two decades to recover trucks as large as 24 tons from bogged situations.
“AAR is very proud to represent Robusta B.V. and their high-performance, light-weight Bogstrips,” said David N. Perri, General Manager of AAR Defense Systems & Logistics. “Robusta’s products have an excellent reputation among defense customers and we believe that many more customer types could benefit from improved access to these convenient and functional products.”



“Robusta has specialized in heavy woven textile products for the last 40 years. The Robusta Vehicle Mobility products have proven to be very effective, not only in difficult military operations, but also in commercial recovery operations and terrain accessibility,” said Rob W. Verver, Managing Director of Robusta, B.V. “We are very enthusiastic about the fit we found with AAR and hope to leverage the solid reputation of their mobility products to broaden our distribution network to include new and different customer types.”
