TVS Wins Major Armed Forces Contract

TVS Supply Chain Solutions has won a major contract with the Defence Support Group (DSG) to support the Ministry of Defence (MOD) with spare parts for vehicles used by the UK’s Armed Forces.

The new contract, which was won after a competitive tender, is worth £36 million over four years and provides spare parts for Land Rover vehicles used for front line commands and repair workshops.

The tender was conducted on behalf of MOD by DSG’s Land Supply Business Unit in conjunction with the Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) organisation. The contract is split into four areas; safety critical parts sourced from a Land Rover approved supplier; OEM parts obtained from suppliers other than Land Rover approved sources; supply to DSG workshops and supply to the British Forces South Atlantic Islands.

TVS has a growing relationship with DSG, currently managing a number of contracts including the provision of heavy armour spares, field kitchen and general support consumable spare parts.  The company has a dedicated Defence facility in Bicester, which manages over £10 million of inventory, covering a range of 130,000 NATO Stock Numbers.

Irene Ainscough, Director of Defence at TVS Supply Chain Solutions, commented: “The award of this contract to deliver spares for Land Rover vehicles is further confirmation of our ability to provide bespoke procurement and supply chain solutions to the UK’s Armed Forces. We are delighted to have won the contract and look forward to a close working relationship with Jaguar Land Rover and DSG.”
