In order to contribute with supporting the forces in their current operations, both on national soil and in foreign operations, ARQUUS has made sure that numerous support activities are kept running. Dedicated teams have been kept in place on the different industrial plants to ensure the reception and delivery of all spares and organs, in accordance with all support agreements linking ARQUUS and the SIMMT.
These teams ensure, as much as possible, the support of vital fleets such as the 10,000 trucks of the MSS PL contract (TRM10.000, TRM2.000, VLRA, GBC 180), which carry the Army’s logistics, or the VAB, VBL and PVP which constitute most of the combat vehicles deployed in operations. ARQUUS has also made sure that all French VBCI and Caesar© fleets would keep receiving all necessary spares and organs, through partner company Nexter.
At the ARQUUS HUB in Garchizy (Nièvre), in charge of all logistics activities for the spares and organs for the vehiles supported by ARQUUS, almost 35% of the workforce are still mobilized today, with utmost repect for all sanitary measures, in order to ensure the reception, conditioning, preparation and sending of all kits to the regiments.
Last, the Renault Trucks network, on which ARQUUS relies for the support of the Army’s trucks and VT4 vehicles, is still operational. More than half of the network, totaling more than a hundred service points all over France, overseas territories included, is at the disposal of the armies for regular maintenance activities.
More than ever, ARQUUS is fully committed to serving the Army, in order to ensure, as much as possible in these very demanding times, its mobility on all operational theaters, foreign as well as domestic.
