Babcock already provides the maintenance, repair and asset management for the majority of the British Army’s vehicles and equipment and has been delivering technical and engineering support to Ukraine’s military from the wider region since July 2023.  

Babcock Chief Executive Officer, David Lockwood said: “Getting military equipment and assets back to Ukrainian armed forces in the most efficient way possible is why we are making this in-country investment in an armoured vehicle engineering facility.  This will enable even faster turn-around times on repair and restoration of critical military assets to the front line.”
