Austin Hayes wins substantial MOD contract

11 August 2010

Industrial coatings contractor Austin Hayes has signed a long term partnering agreement with the Ministry of Defence. The five year, GBP18.5 million contract, with options for a further five years, has the potential to be worth GBP40 million pounds over the next ten years.

The partnering agreement builds on an existing contract and long-term relationship between Austin Hayes and the MOD and will see the company supply a range of over 50 refurbished munitions packaging components for use by munitions manufacturers supplying British troops on operations around the world and in training. It is anticipated that up to half a million items will be recovered from the UK and abroad each year and refurbished to ‘as new’ condition.
