Kent Periscopes featured on BBC following UK strategic defence review

Following the publishing in November 2015 of the UK Government’s National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015, John Oliver, Managing Director of Kent Periscopes, was interviewed by the BBC and asked about the Company’s involvement in the UK MOD’s AJAX vehicle programme.

In response, John confirmed “This is a major contract with over 580 vehicles being ordered, so for us that means a multi-million pound and multi-year contract. This means not only retaining but adding to our high qualify staff.”

The BBC reported that the AJAX programme will provide 622 jobs in Wales, and that an extra £12 billion in funding has been allocated to buying and maintaining equipment in the defence industry. John’s interview is available to view via the following link.
