Nasmyth has entered into a 10 year Long Term Supply Agreement with WFEL for the manufacture of precision machined and fabricated components for the UK Boxer Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) programme.

The Boxer MIVs are highly mobile, wheeled armoured combat vehicles which combine long distance road deployment with all-terrain mobility, bringing new capabilities to the British Army. The common Boxer base platform, with its interchangeable Mission Modules, can cover a range of capabilities, from infantry personnel transportation around the battlefield, to highly equipped mobile medical facilities.

Ian Anderton, WFEL Managing Director, said: “We warmly welcome Nasmyth Group into our expanding UK Boxer family and look forward to developing a close partnership as we collaborate to successfully deliver this exciting project for the British Army."

Peter Smith, Chairman and CEO of Nasmyth Group, commented: “For the defence markets, Nasmyth Group manufactures a wide range of complex components for a variety of military applications.  We look forward to working with the team at WFEL to manufacture component parts for the Boxer Armoured Vehicle Programme.”
