Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has won a contract worth more than £100million to supply the next generation of containers for the Dutch Armed Forces.

The Cambridge company will provide more than 1,400 deployable container systems over five years. They include command and control shelters, workshops, controlled atmosphere and basic stores units, and come with a 14-year support package.

Alistair McPhee, chief executive of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, said: “Winning this contract is a major milestone in the strategic development of our Land Systems business and emphasises our capability to manage major programmes which benefits not only Marshall but local suppliers.

“During both the implementation and support phases of this contract we will be working closely with Dutch industry not only as part of the supply chain but also as part of the development of our business across Europe.”

The contract, with the Dutch Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO), is part of a major programme to update the Dutch Armed Forces with new vehicles, containers and support equipment.

As part of the design work, Marshall will provide a new expandable container that uses lighter materials but maintains the strength of its existing Matrix Expandable products.

Marshall says it will work with a range of suppliers on the contract, and its Leiden-based subsidiary, Marshall Aerospace Netherlands BV, will provide engineering and supply chain management and act as a focus for the contract.

The support programme includes a full availability-based fleet management package ensuring the units are maintained to the latest standards, along with a “significant training commitment”.

It represents another major deal for Marshall in the Netherlands, where it has had a presence since 1995, when it provided command and control shelters.

It has since supported the country’s C-130 fleet, provided ambulances, flat racks, fitted out the Boxer AFV ambulances and been contracted to provide an advanced Medevac pallet, which is in the final stages of development.
