Meritor Defense

By: Mss Holdings  09-12-2011

More than a half century ago, we began our tenure as a leading drivetrain components supplier for military fleets. Today, we are the largest independent drivetrain producer for tactical wheeled vehicles globally, providing systems for a complete range of lightweight to heavyweight tactical vehicles, armored personnel carriers and advanced wheeled combat vehicles for all types of terrains.

Our full portfolio of axle and brake technology includes all wheel drive systems, high mobility independent suspensions, drivelines, transfer cases and suspension height control systems.

Our products equip BAE Systems and Navistar Defense's Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. We are also part of the Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV) programs supporting Lockheed Martin and BAE Systems, and have recently been selected as a supplier to BAE Systems' Caiman Multi Terrain Vehicle program.

At Meritor, we take great pride in the opportunity to provide our advanced technology solutions for military and government applications. And we stand ready to provide the technology needed to meet every challenge worldwide, backed by global aftersales support.
