    Horstman has been selected to provide a complex gearbox in support of the British Army’s Boxer Mechanised Infantry Vehicle programme, both for the UK and export. After rigorous competition, Horstman was selected to ensure that the best value and lowest risk to the Boxer programme was taken forward. This £12m award continues the company’s long heritage of providing combat mobility solutions in support of British and allied forces and demonstrates its potential as a company of the RENK group.

    RENK, a German-headquartered multi-national company, has invested significantly in the UK with the acquisition of Horstman in 2019. While Horstman is well known for its armoured vehicle suspension systems, this Boxer award re-kindles a significant history in producing gearboxes in Bath for battle tank turrets, tactical 4×4’s and combat engineering vehicles.
