Anniston facility receives military
The success of mine resistant armor
manufactured in Anniston in the protection of our troops in Iraq and
Afghanastan has prompted the military to award a contract to defense
contractor BAE systems in Anniston to produce 65 thousand of the
armor plates for combat vehicles for the Army. The Anniston branch
of BAE Systems will get $47.2 million to build the plates. The
plates are part of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected package
applied to various combat vehicles for protection from roadside bomb
blasts and small-arms fire. Company officials said the
450,000-square-foot forge facility on 10th Street will add three
more presses and possibly 20 more workers to build the needed
panels. The company is currently forging plates for the Marine
Corps. The Marines' 62,000-plate order should be completed by July
and has already added 30 jobs. The factory will then begin the
Army's order and should finish by September.
