Rheinmetall BAE Systems Land (RBSL) and Rheinmetall Landsysteme (RLS) have jointly awarded a contract worth over £10m to Renvale Ltd to supply CAN-Node electro-mechanical boxes for the British Army’s new Boxer vehicles under the Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) programme.

Renvale will supply CAN-Node electro-mechanical boxes which ensure communication between electronic devices within the Boxer vehicle. Over the next ten years, Renvale will source materials and manage the sub-assembly and inspection of the completed boxes.

The work will be completed at Renvale’s headquarters in Suffolk which employs c.50 highly-skilled engineers and technicians, quality assurance, and support personnel.

The contract will provide further growth, creating 15 new positions, including up to 12 apprentices and an additional support team who will be recruited locally and receive extensive training within the company.

As a UK SME, this is a major contract for Renvale, providing assurance and stability over the next 10 years. The contract also supports the UK manufacturing community and enables further expansion and investment in Renvale’s five-acre technology park.

Renvale is also working closely with their strategic partner, Ray Service, who has supplied components for other international Boxer programmes. Ray Service is supporting Renvale with upskilling and technology transfer and has recently begun production for prototype components ahead of the Boxer UK programme.

Anthony Moss, Chief Operating Officer at Renvale Group said: “As an SME designing and manufacturing advanced electrical and electro mechanical assemblies, we are excited to apply our advanced capabilities to other sectors and programmes as significant as Boxer.

“Working closely with our strategic partner, Ray Service, for support with supply chain and technology transfer, we have been on an exciting five-year journey to reach this position. This formal award is a real milestone for our team and one we are immensely proud of.”

The MIV programme aims to support and enhance the UK supply chain. As such, RBSL and RLS are part of a MIV Joint Procurement Team, which has engaged suppliers in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This contract is the latest in a series of supplier contracts for the MIV programme.
