Tim Dear, president and CEO of DEW, said the armour manufactured in Miramichi - a lightweight ceramic composite technology - offers the same ballistic protection as the traditional steel armour at half the weight.
"As the Stryker vehicles get older and need to be refurbished, we replace the heavy steel with our ceramic composite armour to get those vehicles back to the mobility they had when they were first made," he said.
Miramichi Centre MLA Robert Trevors, also minister of public safety, said the announcement is "nothing but positive" for a region struggling with high unemployment. "A number of corporations on the river like DEW are really helping build us a foundation to get the Miramichi back up again," he said.
Dear said it's important that the firm continues to win competitive manufacturing bids. "We need to keep winning competitive contracts to keep the 160-plus people working here," he said.
Meanwhile, Dear hopes DEW will snare some bigger contracts with the Canadian military. Several contracts worth roughly $12 billion for tanks, trucks and other vehicles are expected to be tendered by the Department of National Defence after the federal election. "We need to keep winning these smaller contracts so we're ready to go out and nail and win and deliver the big vehicle jobs," he said.
Dear said the larger contracts would be a boon for the entire province because DEW would team up with local suppliers in areas like machining, metal fabrication and rubber manufacturing, creating spinoffs in the economy.
"DEW Engineering and Development is proud to support Canada's troops as it fulfills its demanding and challenging role overseas", stated DEW President Tim Dear.
"DEW Engineering and Development is pleased to be supporting the Department of National Defence on the Field Heating Equipment program", stated DEW President Tim Dear.
