Armoured vehicles made in Mississauga are being sent to Ukraine to aid in the military effort.
Canada’s National Defense Minister, Anita Anand posted a Tweet that said Canada will send eight armoured vehicles to Ukraine.
The vehicles will be built by Roshel, a smart armored vehicles manufacturer located at 7381 Pacific Circle in Mississauga.
Roshel’s clientele base includes the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), US Department of State (DOS), NASA, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), National Defence (Canada), GardaWorld, Brink’s and others.
The company’s website says that it is their mission to “anticipate and exceed the security challenges of our clients by providing deep expertise and analysis, advanced smart capabilities and solutions, custom-tailored to each specific requirement.”
Roshel also says on their website that they have the industry’s shortest production lead-times considering all manufacturing capabilities are in-house. From design and development to painting and electrical assembly, an item never leaves the facility before it is complete
“We will supply (the vehicles) to our Ukrainian friends as quickly as possible,” Anand said on Twitter.
Russia launched an invasion of the sovereign nation in the early hours of the morning on Feb. 24.
Widespread reports overnight said that explosions were heard throughout Ukraine as Russian troops moved inside its borders.
Members of Mississauga’s Ukrainian community are “deeply concerned” for family members and friends in their homeland.
