Defence News – Late May 2021

Cook Defence Systems has won an extension to its Ministry of Defence contract to supply spare tracks for the Challenger 2 main battle tank and other combat, reconnaissance and engineering vehicles for the British Army.

The UK company, based at Stanhope, County Durham, is the world’s leading independent designer and manufacturer of track systems for armoured vehicles. Its tracks are in service on almost all the tracked vehicles in the British Army and with many other armed forces around the world.

The Minister for Defence Procurement, Jeremy Quin MP, visited the company in Stanhope, County Durham, to announce the contract extension, tour the world-class facilities and meet representatives of Cook Defence Systems.
