Glomex MS Polska, produced the winning Tender bid by offering modified Nissan Navara vehicles. However, at the end of May, the Japanese car maker announced that; due to the Coronavirus crisis, later this year it was closing the European factory where the cars were due to be manufactured.
The possibility of securing Nissan Navara vehicles manufactured in South Africa was investigated, but unfortunately their specifications did not meet the requirements of the Polish Army. This forced us to negotiate an alternative solution for the Polish Ministry of Defense.Glomex MS Polska will now supply the Polish Army with Ford manufactured all-terraine Pick-up trucks instead of Nissan. Specifically, the `Ford Ranger XLT`. Not only does it meet the original specifications including; run flat tyres, metal underbody protection and aluminium hard-top roofing, but it also came in at a lower price than the Nissan original.
