National Windscreens has won a “major” British Army fleet vehicle contract, resulting in sole supplier status for windscreen repair, replacement and ADAS calibration.
The five-year contract, with an option of extensions, was awarded after a competitive tender process with three UK windscreen companies.
National Windscreens had been the sole supplier to the British Army for the previous six years. This new agreement will see the company provide support to 'green' army vehicles, from the Land Rover Wolf to the Foxhound protective vehicle and large MAN Logistic Support Vehicles (LSV), as well as a wide range of other vehicles based in the UK or operating throughout Europe.
National Windscreens’ regional head of sales John Poole said: “We’re very pleased to have won such a significant contract with the MOD, building on our previous six years working with the Army.
“We’re already experienced in delivering glass repair and replacement services for British Army vehicles.
We also stock a wide range of specialist glass to ensure we get these vehicles operational as quickly as possible which is important for a client such as this where a fast response is imperative.”
The contract includes the provision of replacement anti-bandit and armoured glass.
