Armor Holdings has announced the receipt of an order from AM General valued at $87.4 million under a blanket purchase agreement to provide armor components for the M1151 and M1152 Up-Armored HMMWV program.

Armor Holdings stated that deliveries will supply armor system components for inclusion in the AM General vehicle manufacturing process as well as armor kits specifically designed for application in times when additional armor protection is required. Work will be performed during 2006 by the Armor Holdings Aerospace and Defense Group at its Fairfield, Ohio facilities.

Robert Schiller, President of Armor Holdings, Inc., said, "We are proud to be the supplier to AM General for these vital armor sub-systems supporting the Up-Armored HMMWV program and look forward to an even stronger relationship now that we have completed the acquisition of Stewart & Stevenson.

This particular order now brings backlog for Armor Holdings Aerospace & Defense Group to approximately $2.1 billion, while we look toward additional opportunities as a result of the pending FY06 Defense Supplemental Bill."
