WFEL's Boxer Warehouse and Quality teams received the delivery from Lancashire-based BCW Manufacturing Group, which was selected as a nominated sub-contractor from an initial group of over 20 qualifying companies. BCW have demonstrated compliance with the strict quality and engineering capability criteria required as part of WFEL's world-class supplier approval procedures.

"I am extremely pleased with the roll-out of our UK supply chain for the Boxer vehicles for our British Army customer,” WFEL managing director Ian Anderton said.

“This £2.3 billion program is delivering economic benefits not just for WFEL but for many other companies around the UK, particularly in the North of England. 

“This first delivery from BCW is another historic moment as we ramp up to begin the first-ever production of these Mechanised Infantry Vehicles in the UK."

Nick Eary, business development director, ANSUKA Group (BCW's parent company), added, "We are both delighted and proud to be part of the team contributing to the delivery of the new Boxer vehicles for the British Army.

“We have already built a strong relationship with WFEL's Procurement Team, who know we can be relied on for this and potential future deliveries of specialist parts. It was particularly pleasing to be able to deliver the goods two weeks ahead of the requested delivery date."
