SILLINGER Wins Contract With The French Military & Strengthens Its
Presence On Domestic Market
The French RIB manufacturer SILLINGER, famous worldwide thanks to its
iconic shark logo, has just won a tender launched by the Logistics Department
of the French Navy (SLM). The seven years market order comes under the
pooling of the ressources of the French Navy.
RIB 650 UM for French Gendarmerie Maritime
to 600 boats will be manufactured in the French workshops: a good operation
for SILLINGER which consolidates its presence within the domestic market.
More precisely the contract consists in the production and supply of
inflatable boats for Maritime Surveillance Patrols (6.50 meters in length,
mainly for the Gendarmerie Maritime) as well as crossing rafts for the
French Army (Land Forces) commando squads (2.40 meters in length).
The first deliveries are expected to occur in the last quarter of 2013.
French Gendarmerie and Army are prestigious references which SILLINGER
is proud to add to a long list of demanding customers who already trust
the French RIB manufacturer, renowned worldwide for its performant,
reliable and unsinkable boats.
