JLG Industries has been awarded a USD7.6 million order from the US Army for its all-terrain lifter army system (ATLAS) vehicles for delivery to the Iraqi military.
The two-year contract to support the Iraqi military's requirements under the Iraqi Supplemental Acquisition Military program is due for completion in October 2007.
The first delivery is scheduled for January 2006.
Greg Fries, JLG manager, investor relations & analysis, said the company did not disclose the number of machines sold under a contract.
Congressman Bill Shuster, an armed services committee member, said:
"Right here in central Pennsylvania we are doing our part to equip and prepare the Iraqi Security Forces to defend themselves while also creating good jobs and economic development."
