Paris: The CEOs of Renault Trucks Defense (RTD) and Défense Conseil International (DCI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the joint promotion of capability offers for international armed forces. This approach fosters joint projects built around the reputation of the vehicles offered by RTD combined with the training, consulting and operational assistance services that DCI can provide.
RTD designs, manufactures and markets a comprehensive range of tactical and logistic vehicles, wheeled armoured vehicles and propulsion systems for armoured vehicles, capable of responding to the needs of armed forces. DCI's complementarity and the global offer proposed will promote the "French Team" with regard to export customers.
“We recognise Défense Conseil International as a major player in the transfer of defence know-how in areas as important as the operation and training of armed forces”, said Emmanuel Levacher, CEO of RTD. “It is through partnerships between French team champions that we will all together contribute to promoting the French defence industry.”
“We share a common vision with Renault Trucks Defense and all its teams and we are confident in our approach: together provide capability offers built around dual French operational and technological excellence”, said Jean-Michel Palagos, Chairman and CEO of DCI. “I'm sure that this novel approach will provide a comprehensive, sustainable response to the expectations of our customers and give the integrated offer a meaningful purpose.”
