Babcock Canada and Roshel, an Ontario-headquartered manufacturer of special-purpose armoured vehicles, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaboratively explore opportunities to support the Canadian Armed Forces.

Babcock has been active in the Canadian defence and security markets for over 16 years, while Roshel designs and manufactures a range of armoured vehicles for military and law enforcement agencies across North America and worldwide.

The MoU is designed to enable both companies to leverage their respective capabilities, combining Babcock’s global asset management expertise and Roshel’s vehicle manufacturing experience, to deliver innovative solutions to the Canadian Armed Forces.

“We are proud to be a trusted partner of the Canadian Armed Forces and are delighted to sign this memorandum of understanding with Roshel,” Jerry McLean, CEO of Babcock Canada, was quoted as saying in a company press release. “This agreement will enable us to leverage our global expertise and jointly explore innovative opportunities that will support the requirements of the Canadian Army.”

Roman Shimonov, CEO of Roshel, added, “Signing an MoU marks a significant milestone in our expansion efforts within Canada and globally. We are delighted to partner with Babcock, whose extensive capabilities enable them to provide in-service support for our vehicles on a worldwide scale. There are numerous opportunities where our combined expertise can collaborate to set new industry benchmarks.”
