Sweden’s Hägglunds to take part in Czech army’s tender for infantry fighting vehicles
Hägglunds CEO Tommy Gustafsson-Rask said the company that succeeds in the Czech Republic will boost its standing in other countries too. The Czech Ministry of Defence said the volume of offsets for Czech companies will be an important criterion to evaluate bids. Hägglunds therefore invited Czech companies to its headquarters, presenting possible cooperation options. The presentation was attended by President of the Defence Industry Association Jiří Hynek and representatives of the Agados and VOP companies. First CV90 vehicles could be assembled in Örnsköldsvik as well as in VOP, said Mikael Segerman, Hägglunds regional manager in charge of the Czech Republic.
