News: USA - Oshkosh Defense awarded $5 million remanufacturing contract
Oshkosh Defense has been awarded a contract modification with the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM).
Tuesday, 30th December 2008
Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, has been awarded a contract modification with the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) to recap approximately 30 Common Bridge Transporter (CBT) variants of the Oshkosh Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT). The order is a modification to the Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV) contract and is valued at $5 million. Under the modification, Oshkosh Defense will tear down the 10-year-old A0 configuration CBT HEMTTs and recapitalize them into Oshkosh's current HEMTT® A2 Load Handling System (LHS) models. The new vehicles will feature computer-controlled engines and transmission systems, as well as a lighter load handling system. Through Oshkosh's remanufacturing and recapitalization services, heavily used vehicles are returned to Oshkosh, stripped to their frame rails and completely rebuilt to like-new condition. Vehicles receive the latest upgrades and are considered to have zero miles and zero hours, at no more than 75 percent the cost of a new vehicle. Vehicles are put through the same road tests, performance tests and inspection procedures as new vehicles before being delivered with a standard bumper-to-bumper warranty.
