So far having deliveries completed typically for construction companies, Rába has now entered an entirely new segment. This time around the company will be delivering welded vehicle parts for the Austrian subsidiary of Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) to create specific trucks. The total value of orders will reach up to EUR 10 million over the upcoming four years.
The cooperation of the two companies began in 2015. Following the successful sample production this year Rába has been granted with serial production.
According to the contract signed recently the Győr-based company will produce and deliver welded vehicle parts to its partners until 2020, of which the projected and ordered amount for 2017 represents a value of more than EUR 2.5 million. RMMV also counts on Rába during product development projects as a flexible and skilled supplier.
With the deal made in line with strategic objectives, Rába will increase its market share on the European metalware market, well supported by the recent technology-upgrading and capacity-increasing investments.
