Navistar Defense Receives $134 Million for Fleet Support
WARRENVILLE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Navistar Defense, LLC today announced that it received a $134 million
delivery order for field service representatives (FSRs). The order from
the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command renews the company's in theater
FSR service contract to support International® MaxxPro® Mine Resistant
Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles.
"I'm proud to say that Navistar will not sell a truck if we can't
support it in theater," said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar
Defense. "Sustainment of our vehicles is key — especially when vehicle
lifecycles may run between 15 to 20 years. With our fleet of vehicles
now growing beyond 32,000 trucks, fleet support will continue to be a
critical piece of our business."
The company currently has more than 600 FSRs in theater and working
domestically to support the MaxxPro family of vehicles.
Work conducted under the renewed contract will run through December 2012.
Navistar International Corporation (NYSE: NAV) is a holding company

the pickup truck, van and SUV markets. The company also provides truck
and diesel engine service parts. Another affiliate offers financing
services. Additional information is available at www.Navistar.com/newsroom.
