Meet the Buyer Event - 2nd November

General Dynamics will be bringing construction of the new tank building facility to Merthyr Tydfil in 2016/17 and a ‘Meet the Buyer Event’ will be held at the Orbit Business Centre, Merthyr Tydfil  on Monday 2nd November.

Summary of work:

1. Fabrication of steel panels to form a set of training armour which covers the entire vehicle. There are 412 sets in total to be delivered over the next 6 years. The delivery schedule is from March 2016 through to 2024. We think the best way would be for GD to buy the bulk steel and free issue to the fabricators but we are open to other ideas.

2. The assembly of cables and harness. There will 589 sets of cable harnesses to be produced. On the day we will provide more information how many harnesses and cables per set. GD will again buy the components in bulk (connectors and backshells in particular). As these cables are going into military vehicles the construction and quality processes will be key. The delivery schedule is from March 2016 through to 2024.
