Kongsberg will supply the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) and has selected Marshall to manufacture and provide its modular, reconfigurable containers following a competitive tender.
 
“We selected Marshall because of their competitive prices, their high standards of design and manufacture, speed of response and willingness to work collaboratively with Kongsberg,” said Kjetil Myhra, Executive Vice President of Kongsberg. “We look forward to working with them on this contract and delivering the highest quality solution to our customer.”
 
Marshall’s container systems provide operators with a comfortable and protected working area even when deployed in extreme environments and can be rapidly reconfigured to suit changing deployment needs.
 
The robust containers are installed with advanced equipment that is protected from the rigours of military transport on land and in the air.
 
Marshall ADG CEO, Alistair McPhee, said: “We are delighted to have been selected by Kongsberg to support their customer with this dynamic solution. We hope this will be the beginning of a long and productive relationship, as Kongsberg continues to achieve further success with NASAMS in its key markets around the world.”
 
Marshall provides a high volume modular container production line at its Cambridge base that enables the company to meet customer demand quickly and efficiently.
