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.

says DEW President, Timothy Dear.
"Initially DEW was approached by several large international firms who wanted to partner with DEW to bring their products to Canada", said Tim Dear, President of DEW Engineering and Development.
DEW President Timothy Dear was joined by Minister of State for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency Keith Ashfield, Miramichi MP Tilly O'Neill-Gordon, and John K. Coors, CEO of Colorado-based ceramics firm CoorsTek and member of the vaunted Coors brewing family.
Ashfield toured the converted air hangar that serves as the company's base of operations, and praised Dear for his long-standing commitment to providing meaningful employment to the Miramichi. Gesturing to the carnival-like atmosphere that was arranged for employees and their families - which included face-painting, raffles, games, live music, and a barbecue - Ashfield said it's clear that DEW isn't your average engineering firm.
"There aren't a lot of companies that do this for their workers," he said. "They're committed to their people. They like the workforce here, and if you find the type of combination that features a state-of-the-art facility, workforce, and good people, it's pretty hard to beat."
Dear, who is based at company headquarters in Ottawa, said it was important for both him and Coors to attend the company picnic, adding that having Ashfield and O'Neill-Gordon present was an added bonus.
On the vehicle refurbishment side of DEW's Miramichi operation, Dear said the accolades have been just as consistent.
"The compliments that we've received from the original manufacturer of the vehicle has stated that the vehicles come off as good or better than they did the first time around, so that speaks to the top-notch employees in the Miramichi."
With the uncertain futures of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Dear said he's optimistic the company will be able to adapt to whatever contracts are needed. He said he sees a thriving DEW Engineering remaining in Miramichi well into the distant future.
"The key about the employ is that it's flexible; we've done the Leopard Tank here, we've done the armoured vehicle re-life, we've done the Bison (armoured personnel carrier), we make armour for New Zealand, the United States, and Canada," he said, "So whether it's in ceramic technologies or other vehicle programs that Canada's looking to embark on, there will be a role in that for Miramichi."
