Abu Dhabi, 15 June 2016: NIMR Automotive, the defence vehicle manufacturer in Abu Dhabi, achieved an important milestone in its history with the 1,000th vehicle completed in its production facility at Tawazun Industrial Park in Ajban, since commencing operation in 2014.
NIMR’s 1,000th vehicle produced is the AJBAN 440A, a 4×4 ballistic and blast protected Light Tactical Protected Patrol Vehicle for four crew members, and is fitted with a roof mounted multi-fit ring. The AJBAN Class of 4×4 vehicles provides a multi-purpose platform for all military requirements from utility vehicles to fully protected patrol vehicles.
After producing the first vehicle “ISV02 Command” in 2014, more than 16 models were added to NIMR’s portfolio. The company progressed significantly to provide a range of vehicles which address various needs of armed forces and internal security organisations around the world.
In 2014, NIMR started off with producing 2 vehicles a month and has now increased the production to more than 80 vehicles a month. In 2015, NIMR delivered more than 500 vehicles with a 100% on time delivery record across the expanded model range. With the creation of the UAE’s integrated defence manufacturing and services platform, NIMR became a member of the Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC).
Commenting on this achievement, Dr. Fahad Saif Harhara, CEO of NIMR Automotive, said: “With the completion of the 1,000th vehicle, NIMR Automotive today achieved an important milestone in UAE’s history. We have established a modern production system that delivers consistent quality and high volumes.”
He added: “I am extremely proud of the work that NIMR’s team produces every day, with our modern production facilities, engineering excellence, and latest product development techniques. NIMR remains committed consistently delivering high quality military vehicles to its customers.”
NIMR currently produces three classes of highly capable military vehicles, the AJBAN, HAFEET and N35, which are suited to a diverse range of payloads and mission requirements. The desert-proven 4×4 and 6×6 variants are available in armoured or non-armoured configurations, with modular configurable crew capacity and payload, where protection and mobility are the focus of design.
