Haulmark Signs Overlander Contract
Brisbane's Haulmark Trailers has signed a $70 million contract for the provision and support of 973 Lightweight and Light trailers to the Australian Defence Force under Project Overlander, Land 121.
"The new generation of vehicular systems will replace the current trailer capability for Defence and have been purposely designed to operate in conjunction with the G-Wagon vehicles, currently being acquired under a contract with Mercedes Benz Australia/Pacific," Greg Combet, Minister for Defence Materiel and Science, said.
The capability will be delivered from April 2012 through to February 2015.
ADM remembers being present at the end of 2007 when then Defence Minister Brendan Nelson announced the Ph 3 Land 121 winners at Haulmark's Brisbane facility, along with their preferred tenderer status.
It's good to see the contract finally signed.
