Building Strong Relationships with Key Market Players: Arquus develops strong bilateral relationships with its partners to offer complete vehicle manufacturing that meets the client’s specific requirements. In the context of industrial cooperation, Arquus distinguishes itself by supporting local teams with skill and technology transfers to independently design modern vehicles suited to the needs of local armies.

The Middle Eastern VABs benefit from performance improvements in drivetrain, braking capabilities, and steering elements.

To support its clients, Arquus experts specialise in various services, including localising training, warranty and initial support for the first vehicles built in France; gradual vehicle assembly and enhancing maintenance skills; assisting in coordinating the setup of lines such as local industry production or assembly lines; in-country sourcing, etc. It is with all these services that the vehicles maintain enhanced, unparalleled performance, perfectly adapted to various tension situations, taking into account geographical, financial, or geopolitical challenges.
