Rheinmetall Defence to operate the German Army Combat Training Centre for a further four years
Rheinmetall AG of Düsseldorf has won a major service contract from the German Bundeswehr worth around €70 million. Through to 2018, the Group will be responsible for providing contractor support for the complete exercise and training operations of one of the world’s most advanced military training facilities, the German Army Training Centre (GÜZ) in the Altmark region of Saxony-Anhalt.
As the current service contract with Rheinmetall expires on 31 August 2014, the request for tenders for contractor support covered the four-year period starting 1 September 2014. Building on the Group’s successful track record in providing contractor support for the GÜZ, Rheinmetall’s proposal convinced the Bundeswehr to renew the contract, which has now been signed with Germany’s Federal Agency for Procurement, Information Technology and In-Service Support of the Bundeswehr.
