Conservatory of military vehicle opens during the heritage day

During the heritage day, Arquus' Conservatory of military vehicle opens its door on Saturday, September 17rh from 10 am to 5 pm in Garchizy (Nièvre).

Second edition of the Heritage Day

The Heritage Conservatory, officially inaugurated on 17 June 2021, is a place of memory dedicated to the genius of the pioneers, engineers and designers who built the history of what is now Arquus, in the service of the armed forces. Far from being frozen in time and space, it is intended to be a solid bridge between eras, a space of technical and technological filiation, a tangible link between the past and the present of Arquus. Within this Conservatory, the current Arquus engineers and technicians follow in the footsteps of their elders and bear witness to the constant mission of Arquus: to serve the Armed Forces by imagining, designing, producing and supporting over time the equipment best suited to the needs of the battlefield.


Arquus Garchizy, home of historic vehicles

Arquus has taken over the Garchizy facility, previously occupied by the 15th BSMAT (Army Materiel Support Base). With 450 employees, the Arquus Garchizy center of excellence is specialized for the repair and maintenance of military vehicles, the manufacture of armored cabins and the distribution of spare parts.

The Arquus Hub logistics platform provides support for the new vehicles in the Scorpion program. 

  • 5,000 parts of equipment processed every day.
  • 25,000 m² logistics platform named Hub Arquus.
  • 25,000 Army vehicles supported per year, thanks to Hub Arquus.

The factory also has its own training center, called "école des métiers". This school is in charge of training the company's employees in the core businesses of the Garchizy site: welding, logistics and quality.
