Armor Holdings, Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of military vehicles, vehicle armor systems and life safety and survivability systems serving military, law enforcement, homeland security and commercial markets, announced today the receipt of an order from AM General valued at $53.3 million under a blanket purchase agreement to provide armor components for the M1151, M1152 and M1165 Up-Armored HMMWV programs.
Armor Holdings stated that deliveries will supply armor system components for inclusion in the AM General vehicle manufacturing process, as well as armor kits specifically designed for application in times when additional armor protection is required. Work will be performed during the second quarter of 2007 by the Armor Holdings Aerospace and Defense Group at its Fairfield, Ohio facilities.
Robert Schiller, President of Armor Holdings, Inc., said, "This order adds to previous backlog for production of additional Up-Armored HMMWV components through May of 2007. We are pleased with our long-standing relationship with AM General and anticipate additional work for the remainder of 2007 under this program once schedules are confirmed. Armor Holdings is proud to continue to support this important effort to provide protection for our service members."
