ADG Opens Manufacturing Campus in Marshall, Texas for Titan Dynamics Systems and MECAR USA
The manufacturing campus will be the home of Allied Technology, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Allied Defense Group, which in turn owns Titan Dynamics Systems, Inc. (Titan) and MECAR USA.
Titan is the premier U.S. based source for Battlefield Effects Simulators. Its simulators replicate the sights and sounds soldiers will experience in a battlefield environment. Titan was recently awarded the "Force on Target" Battlefield Effects Simulator (BES) systems contract for the U.S. Army, which could provide up to $10.99 million in orders for Titan over the next twelve months, with the potential maximum value of $500 million over its five to eight year life. Titan sits on 10 acres of the 110 acre campus and its operations are housed in a single 12,800 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
MECAR USA is the newest Allied Defense subsidiary. It was created to better fulfill the requirements of the U.S. ammunition market. MECAR USA received its first contract in September 2005 to load, assemble, and pack 105mm HEP-T training ammunition for the U.S. Army's Stryker program. MECAR USA is located in four additional buildings on the site, three of which are currently operational. Construction of the fourth building is nearing completion.
Major General (Ret.) John J. Marcello, Chief Executive Officer and President of The Allied Defense Group said, "We are very pleased to open our ADG campus in Marshall, Texas. In addition to the manufacturing jobs we will bring to Marshall, we will bring new technologies for the United States military industrial base. These contributions would not have been possible without the support of MEDCO and to them we offer our deepest appreciation."
