DOK-ING supplied Swedish army with vehicles worth 1.6 million euros
On 11 May 2011, DOK-ING has shipped 4 x MV-4 Mechanical Anti Personnel Mine Clearing Systems (MAPMCS) to the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV). The MV-4 MAPMCS will be used by the Swedish Armed Forces’ (FM) Engineer Units for demining operations, but will also be used during peacetime training.
This contract worth 1.6 million euros, continues a decade of cooperation between Sweden and the DOK-ING. Specifically, these four demining machine type mini-flail MV-4 were ordered by the management of material resources of the Ministry of Defence of the Kingdom of Sweden to replace the old MV-4 machines purchased from the company DOK-ING 8 years ago.
Gunnar Endgvall - Head of land management of arms material resources of Swedish Ministry of Defence said that they were very satisfied with the ten-year cooperation and to have confidence in the DOK-ING. This is the first time I visited the factory and I must stress that I encountered on the extensive knowledge and involvement of people. Not only that here we get great products, but also excellent service - hard Endgvall.
