Matt Grech, land and aero systems manager at Penske Power Systems, said, "Taking part in Land Forces provides an opportunity for us to communicate about our products, technologies and capabilities directly to our customer base and in line with existing and future business opportunities. Penske Power Systems is pleased to be exhibiting our MTU and Allison Transmission products at Land Forces this week."

"Land Forces also provides an opportunity to collaborate with prime contractors, the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG), the Department of Defence, uniform and original equipment manufacturers – all within the one location, which we find invaluable," Grech explained.
