AM General has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Egyptian Ministry of Military Production (MoMP) to facilitate the country’s development of a domestic military automobile industry.
“[The] signing ceremony further solidifies our long-standing relationship with the government of Egypt,” said Andy Hove, AM General President and CEO.
“We look forward to applying our manufacturing and design expertise to help grow the Egyptian automotive industry.”
Together with the MoMP, AM General will study the feasibility of developing an in-country assembly and manufacturing capability.
This capability will enable the MoMP to replace and/or supplement its existing high-mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle (HMMWV or Humvee) fleet of tactical vehicles. The study will result in the development of a detailed plan to move forward with the partnership agreement.
