Toutenkamion, the French manufacturer of special purpose trucks, has launched its composites shelter for the armed forces, giving a work space of 76 square metres and designed for fast transport and set-up
This shelter allows the setting of a Command post that responds to critical requirements of the French armed forced and OTAN forces. Featured with computer desks and as many telephones, up to 30 people are able to undertake high tech tasks in an exceptionally safe and comfortable environment even under the most extreme conditions anywhere on Earth.
This Command post is interconnected two by two and can be connected to others to make a sophisticated extended facility that can still be rapidly moved to another site. Modern armies need this type of equipment to house the sensitive electronics used in electronics wars, pacification operations or in backing up humanitarian organisations. In 2005, Toutenkamion provided the last of 28 shelters to the French army.
After setting up in the Belgian and German markets, Toutenkamion is also extending its distribution network into the UK through a partnership agreement with Angloco, which provides rescue and firefighting equipment to the British market.
“4 Cinémobiles have already been delivered to British customers, including one to the Hi-Arts Council in Scotland and another to SSVC in 2002 for entertaining British troops in Kosovo. This success for our products has shown us the potential in developing the British market. An important advantage is the real synergy between Toutenkamion and Angloco; this complementarity in our products, convinced us of the benefits of joining forces"" explained Cyril Bonnaire, Toutenkamion marketing manager
Scigrip has expanded its agreement with Biesterfeld Spezialchemie to include France and the French territories in Northern Africa, with immediate effect.
