Streit Group, the world's largest privately-owned vehicle armouring company, has appointed David Winner as general manager, Streit Group UK.

Opened in London in 2012, the UK subsidiary is responsible for all of the Group’s sales and marketing operations across Europe and for consulting on European defence and security requirements and design solutions.

Winner joined Streit after a 32-year career in the British Army, during which he was entirely focused on armoured vehicles. He has been involved at all levels, from vehicle user to trials and development work to the short notice introduction of new platforms for operations.

He was also responsible for the delivery of technical training on a number of platforms operated by the Royal Armoured Corps and the wider Army community.

Winner said: “I am excited about this move to the commercial world and looking forward to using my experience to help clients make the right decisions and influence future vehicle production to the benefit of those who will be using them.”

Streit Group CEO, Guerman Goutorov, added: “Setting up a UK operation is an important step for us as we see it as a gateway to the rest of Europe. So we’re delighted that David, with his exemplary experience, has agreed to take on the role of UK general manager.”

Established in Canada in 1992, Streit Group now has its head office in the UAE and employs more than 1,000 people at nine production plants and 25 sales, service and support offices across the world.

With a production capacity of more than 500 vehicles per month, Streit Group’s product portfolio includes luxury vehicles for VIP protection, cash-in-transit and other commercial security vehicles, and a range of APCs and LAVs, including the Spartan, Typhoon, Cougar and Cobra.
