EXPERIMENTAL SEROLOGICAL TEST TO GUARANTEE OUR WORKFORCE’S HEALTH AND SAFETY
Starting next week, in addition to the comprehensive measures already adopted, we will offer an experimental serological test, on a voluntary basis, to the critical workers at our plants who guarantee the main activities.
This test will allow the rapid detection of anti-SARS-CoV-2 Ig and IgM antibodies in the blood samples. As a result, more information regarding asymptomatic cases will be available in order to manage them according to health protocols. As always, our workforce’s health and safety is our priority.
Iveco Defence Vehicles will donate face masks to the Civil Protection Departments of Bolzano and Vittorio Veneto and contribute to mask manufacturing
Protection is in our DNA. As we are aware of the severity of the current situation, we feel the urge to take a further step to support institutions and people, who, on a daily basis are dealing with this emergency bravely and with dedication. That’s why we have decided to donate a first stock of our supply of face masks (models KN95 and FFP3) to the Civil Protection Departments of Bolzano and Vittorio Veneto for immediate distribution to local hospitals and nursing homes.
It’s our way to express our profound thanks to all the personnel who are on the front line in this dangerous and difficult challenge. These donations will continue, as we receive our own supplies. Furthermore, we are using our specialized skills in textile manufacturing processes to contribute to mask manufacturing.

Iveco Defence Vehicles to deliver an additional 26 amphibious platforms to the U.S. Marine Corps in partnership with BAE Systems
According to the contract for the new generation of Amphibious Combat Vehicles (ACV) awarded in 2018, CNH Industrial subsidiary Iveco Defence Vehicles is providing its 8x8 amphibious armored platform design, core components and services.
In the frame of the contract recently awarded by the U.S. Marine Corps to the
company, BAE Systems, along with teammate Iveco Defence Vehicles, will deliver an
additional 26 Amphibious Combat Vehicles (ACV) under the Low-Rate Initial Production
(LRIP) phase of the program. This award brings the total vehicle orders for the ACV to 116,
and moves the program closer to full-rate production.
The ACV is an advanced 8x8 open ocean-capable vehicle that is equipped with a new sixcylinder, 700hp engine, which provides a significant power increase over the legacy fleet currently in service. The vehicle delivers best-in-class mobility in all terrain and has a suspended interior seat structure for 13 embarked Marines, blast-mitigating positions for a crew of three, and improved survivability and force protection over currently fielded systems.
Current low-rate production is focused on the ACV-P variant. Further special variants will be added under full rate production within the ACV Family of Vehicles program. Iveco Defence Vehicles and BAE Systems previously received the Lot 1, Lot 2 and Lot 3 awards.
The companies and the U.S. Marine Corps have been making significant strides to reach full-rate production, including the successful completion of Logistics Demonstration as a critical enabler for the program to move into Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) with trained U.S. Marine maintainers. This and other major milestones such as operator training and additional testing will take place before full-rate production.
As a leading provider of protected and integrated mobility solutions to military and civil protection customers, Iveco Defence Vehicles brings proven experience, having designed and built more than 30,000 multi-purpose, protected and armored military vehicles in service today.
Iveco Defence Vehicles to supply the Romanian Armed Forces with 942 trucks, first batch of a frame contract worth 2900 vehicles.
Iveco Defence Vehicles announces that on December 30, 2019 a first order of a frame agreement including more than 2900 high mobility trucks has been signed with the Romanian Ministry of National Defence. These first 942 vehicles will be delivered throughout four years, starting from 2020.
The frame contract includes four typologies of military logistic platforms from Iveco Defence Vehicles’ high mobility truck range: 4x4, 6x6, 8x8 and 8x8 Prime Mover, to be further declined in 16 different variants, among which approximately a third are with armored cabin.
Being equipped with Central Tyre Inflation System (CTIS), black-out lights, dual-fuel engines, self-recovery winches and tactical axles, they can offer exceptional mobility, fording capability and C-130 air transportability in order to provide tactical support to any military operation.
This important achievement is testament to the satisfaction of the Romanian Armed Forces with the two previous contracts for 57 high mobility trucks in 2015 and 173 in 2017, and contributes to further strengthen the relationship between the Romanian Ministry of National Defence and Iveco Defence Vehicles, enhancing the company’s position as a key military truck supplier.
