Armor Holdings receives $32-million order

Armor Holdings Inc has received an order valued at approximately $32 million from the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense for additional Pinzgauer Protected Patrol Vehicles.

The company said the new deliveries will be completed in 2007 with work performed at the Armor Holdings Aerospace and Defense Group's Pinzgauer facilities in Guildford, Surrey. Vehicle armoring support will be provided by the Aerospace and Defense Group at its facilities in Fairfield OH.

Robert Schiller, president of Armor Holdings, said, “We are pleased that the UK Ministry of Defense has placed a second order for additional Pinzgauer model armored vehicles in support of British deployed forces. We believe this order also underscores our success at integrating Armor Holdings' armoring capability with an important light tactical vehicle program acquired through the Stewart & Stevenson acquisition.”
