Jankel has announced a new partnership with the Australian company Integrated Design & Engineering Solutions (IDES). The partnership aims to “deepen and expand” Jankel’s engagement within Australia.
Jankel first entered the Australian market in 2003 with sales of Civilian Armoured Vehicles (CAVs) based on the Toyota chassis.
The teaming arrangement will be focused on selected current and future major equipment programs such as the upcoming Project Greyfin (Land 1508).
“IDES is pleased to announce this new partnership and excited to work together with an industry leader in Jankel. IDES’ established expertise, know-how and reach right across Australia, will provide unparalleled support to match the exceptional capabilities of Jankel’s vehicles and systems,” Stuart Morse, General Manager at IDES said. “With the complimentary skill sets and objectives that IDES & Jankel share, I am sure that together, we will drive the growth of our user focused and outcome driven solutions to Defence here in Australia.”
“This is an excellent opportunity for Jankel and IDES to work in partnership to bring our respective capabilities to the Australian defence market,” Andrew Jankel, Chairman at Jankel said. “We at Jankel have a long and successful history working in the region, and this partnership will help to deepen and expand that position.
“Working together with IDES we intend to highlight our full range of defence capabilities. Our recently re-shaped specific capability areas include specialist vehicle conversions, advanced technologies and through-life support, combined with our world-renowned protection systems and complex integration solutions. The partnership will also deliver capability on the ground in Australia that will ensure that Jankel can comply with any future Australian Industry Content (AIC) requirements.”
