UAE’s NIMR Automotive has announced partnering Malaysian DefTech and Thai to support marketing and sales of its complete range of vehicles in Southeast Asia. NIMR will also work with Thailand’s FICO Technology and Engineering (FTECH) to explore potential opportunities in the country.
In Malaysia, NIMR and DefTech, the country’s premier armoured and logistics vehicle producer, have announced plans to deepen their relationship with the aim to finalise a formal Strategic Partnership Agreement in early 2018. Under the agreement, DefTech will support NIMR through the marketing and sales of the complete range of NIMR vehicles to Malaysia and other territories in Southeast Asia, the company said in a statement Monday.
NIMR has been working closely with Thailand’s FICO Technology and Engineering (FTECH) to explore potential opportunities in the country. Through the partnership, NIMR’s AJBAN 440A and Long Range Special Operations Vehicle (LRSOV) are earmarked to undergo trials arranged at Thailand’s Military Transport Training Centre.
Both vehicles, that will be trailed for testing and evaluation in the presence of senior officials from the Thai Armed Forces, are currently on display at Defense and Security 2017 in Bangkok (6-9th November).
NIMR Automotive is a subsidiary of the Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC), the UAE’s integrated defence manufacturing and services platform.
