General Dynamics Awarded $10 Million for Vehicle Upgrades

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. – Gen­er­al Dynam­ics Land Sys­tems, a busi­ness unit of Gen­er­al Dynam­ics (NYSE: GD), has been award­ed a $9.9 mil­lion con­tract to upgrade mil­i­tary vehi­cles for the U.S. Army. The con­tract was award­ed by the Army Con­tract­ing Com­mand in War­ren, Mich.

The work will be man­aged by the new­ly estab­lished Gen­er­al Dynam­ics Land Sys­tems Com­bat Sup­port and Sus­tain­ment busi­ness.

This award to pro­vide com­bat sup­port and sus­tain­ment reflects the con­fi­dence our cus­tomers have in the Gen­er­al Dynam­ics Land Sys­tems team,” said H. A. “Graz” Graziano, vice pres­i­dent of Com­bat Sup­port and Sus­tain­ment for Gen­er­al Dynam­ics Land Sys­tems. “The award has spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance in that it under­scores the Army’s con­fi­dence in our abil­i­ty to con­tin­ue to pro­vide world­wide, world-class sup­port to the vital mis­sion of U.S. Warfight­ers.”

Gen­er­al Dynam­ics employ­ees cur­rent­ly pro­vide vehi­cle sup­port to mil­i­tary cus­tomers around the world. Com­bat Sup­port and Sustainment’s field ser­vice rep­re­sen­ta­tives repair and retro­fit vehi­cles in gar­ri­son and in the­atre to ensure opti­mal vehi­cle per­for­mance. Exist­ing sup­port and sus­tain­ment employ­ees will per­form this work, which will be com­plet­ed by May 2013.
