Defence specialist Pearson Engineering – part of the Reece Group, is an award-winning provider of counter-mine and counter-IED equipment for armoured vehicles. Their interchangeable vehicle attachments are specifically designed to allow Commanders to optimise their resources to the needs of the mission and products like its Spark mine roller having been credited with saving countless lives in conflicts in Iran and Afghanistan.
Pearson Engineering had developed an auxiliary hydraulic power supply called a Motor Pump Unit (MPU) to allow the latest generation of mine roller systems to be operated when the unit is stationary or if the primary power system were to fail.
To support a large production contract for their Spark II mine roller system, Pearson Engineering required a manufacturing partner to produce over 2000 MPU assemblies. With the nature of products in the realm of defence it was also vital that the supplier could provide full material traceability and completion within tight timescales.
