Machined component developer and manufacturer RIVAL, is well placed in the defence industry, and has just won an order on a system delivery of advanced components. This means that production will be busy.

The new order must be delivered in the coming years. “Production of the test components is starting up here now, and must be completed before the year end,” says RIVAL Sales Manager Christian Aarup.
Together with RIVAL’s CEO Carsten Tønnes, he has just been to Switzerland to negotiate and finalise the last few details in connection with the order.

Critical components
During the spring, RIVAL supplied the first critical components for a type of military vehicle. The new orders are for two other unique components for other military vehicles.

Strong system deliveries
The orders confirm that RIVAL is well placed in the defence industry, and through network collaboration it has succeeded in functioning as a system supplier on the customer’s projects, which customers really value. “We’re very pleased with the strong network of subcontractors, whom we collaborate with primarily in surface treatment, certifying materials, welding, and research and development,” says Christian Aarup.

RIVAL takes full responsibility
“We know that parameters like reliability of delivery, quality, full traceability and close collaboration on the projects are crucial parameters for our customers in the defence industry. We take full responsibility for ensuring that the project meets the customer’s specifications and expectations – and also when it applies to our subcontractors,” says Christian Aarup.

Busy at RIVAL
The new orders means that RIVAL’s production is busy. “We’re of course in an ongoing dialogue with all of our good, regular customers, since it’s important that they get their orders booked in good time,” says Christian Aarup. “We value long-term customer relationships, because we know that it creates a lot of value for the customers and RIVAL. Therefore, our regular customers of course have primary access to our capacity – also even as now, when we’re extra busy.”
