O'Gara has an extensive history in the military market that was constricted with the military non-compete agreement that was signed in conjunction with BAE’s divestiture of O’Gara. As a key partner of the U.S. military throughout the War on Terrorism, O’Gara armored over 20,000 HMMWVs and manufactured over 80,000 armor HMMWV kits. With the BAE non-compete no longer in effect, O’Gara has a tremendous opportunity to grow through the military channel.
Although today, O’Gara’s presence in the military market is much smaller than it once was, the Company has the relationships and capabilities to supply the military with armored vehicles and related components. As the military budget rebounds and the need to upgrade existing fleets strengthens, O’Gara is well positioned to capitalize on its existing military experience and relationships.
O’Gara has been awarded armor developments for (4) major machine platforms with our partner and are currently designing protection upgrades for two additional platforms.
O’Gara has provided over 250+ armor kits for these programs over the past 4 years.
O’Gara remains a steadfast partner of the U.S. Military. We’ve supported the nation’s warfighters throughout the War on Terror, armoring 20,000 HMMWV’s and manufacturing the armor for 80,000 more. Since 2014, our technicians have produced over 250 armor kits for heavy construction equipment. These large projects give us the experience and competence to seize a larger portion of the growing military market.
The business has earned the trust of two premier automotive OEM’s, BMW and Jaguar Land Rover. Through our relationship with both organizations, O’Gara offers discriminating value to our customers through our collaboration. The platforms offered (X5 and Discovery) have been engineered by the OEM’s to handle the additional armor payload.
