TEN­CATE AD­VANCED AR­MOUR ON NEX­TER PLAT­FORMS

SP's LandForces - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

Ten­Cate Ad­vanced Ar­mour Den­mark A/S has won a con­tract for the sup­ply of light­weight com­pos­ite ar­mour to Nex­ter Sys­tems. The Ten­Cate ar­mour sys­tem to be sup­plied pro­tects ve­hi­cle oc­cu­pants against the ef­fects of blasts, frag­ments, and pro­jec­tiles. The so­lu­tion is en­gi­neered to fit the Nex­ter ve­hi­cle plat­form.

Fol­low­ing this or­der the French am­bas­sador to Den­mark, François Zimeray, vis­ited the Ten Cate Ad­vanced Ar­mour fa­cil­i­ties. Upon a re­quest from the French Em­bassy, Ten­Cate was sin­gled out by Nex­ter as an ex­am­ple of how Dan­ish In­dus­try stands to ben­e­fit from Nex­ter’s in­volve­ment in the ar­moured per­son­nel car­ri­ers (APC) and ar­tillery pro­cure­ment projects cur­rently be­ing un­der­taken by Den­mark.

Steen Tan­derup, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Ten­Cate Ad­vanced Ar­mour EMEA & APAC, said: ‘We are very happy to be selected as sup­plier for this project, and to de­velop fur­ther the good re­la­tion­ship be­tween Ten­Cate and Nex­ter Sys­tems. Nex­ter Sys­tems is a very in­ter­est­ing part­ner for Ten­Cate with a wide range of ve­hi­cle plat­forms and a sig­nif­i­cant level of ac­tiv­ity in ex­port mar­kets, thus rep­re­sent­ing a good match for the Ten­Cate Ad­vanced Ar­mour global growth strat­egy.’

Alexandre Pen­ley, Di­rec­tor In­ter­na­tional Af­fairs of Nex­ter Sys­tems, said: ‘The or­der placed with Ten Cate Ad­vanced Ar­mour is a di­rect con­se­quence of Nex­ter’s will­ing­ness to di­ver­sify its sup­plier base in a long term per­spec­tive and to use in­dus­trial co­op­er­a­tion as a pre­ferred and es­sen­tial means to deliver best value for money to our cus­tomers. From this per­spec­tive, Ten­Cate Ad­vanced Ar­mour and Dan­ish in­dus­try stands out as a re­li­able and valu­able part­ner.’
