Transhield, Inc. announced today that the company was awarded a $4.5 million contract by the U.S. Marine Corps to provide 3,700 protective vehicle and equipment covers. These covers will be used for the Marine Corps’ entire fleet of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles, as well as other equipment. Through patented technology, Transhield vehicle covers provide unique anti-corrosive properties to help extend the life and ensure readiness of military vehicles while in storage, on base or awaiting redeployment. This order is part of the USMC Corrosion Prevention and Control Office’s ongoing effort to reduce damages caused by corrosion and environmental degradation.
“We are extremely proud to have been selected by the U.S. Marine Corps to help safeguard their multi-billion-dollar MRAP fleet and help maintain its readiness for duty,” said James Glick, Transhield’s president. “We appreciate the USMC’s confidence in our patented technology to provide affordable and effective corrosion-reducing protective covers that are ideally suited to help maintain the military’s vast vehicle fleet. I believe that our protective covers provide unique benefits that can protect taxpayer investments in vehicles and equipment.”
Transhield custom-fit covers offer the lightweight and ease-of-use found in earlier vinyl and tarp covers combined with the durability, breathability and corrosion reduction of Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor. These covers offer protection against environmental factors including corrosion, dust, wind, rain, snow and UV rays. They are available to protect a broad range of military vehicles and equipment, ranging from generators to the M1A1 tank, tactical wheeled vehicles and amphibious assault vehicles.
