Manac Inc. has added “strength and capability” in support of its bid for the Logistics Vehicle Modernization (LVM) program with the Canadian Armed Forces.
Manac was selected by General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada to design and build the light capability trailer and the Heavy Equipment Transporter for the LVM program and, in turn, Canada's largest trailer manufacturer has selected K-Line Trailers to build the transporters at their Langley, BC, plant.
K-Line has been producing custom, heavy trailer systems in Canada for a variety of sectors, including the defense sector, for over 20 years.
"The Power Team with Manac and partners will deliver world-class trailer capabilities in their bid for Canada's Logistics Vehicle Modernization project," Manac Vice-President Sales & Marketing Tom Ramsden said. "Alongside our LVM Program Team at Manac Western in Edmonton, we are proud to be developing Canadian trailers for the Canadian military."
The Logistics Vehicle Modernization project provides the Canadian Armed Forces with new fleets of light and heavy logistics vehicles, trailers, vehicle modules, and armor protection kits. The new, modern fleet will be designed to carry a larger load, be more mobile, and provide increased protection to help ensure the CAF can continue to meet national and global missions.
