£110 million deal for Lex Defence

LEX Defence has strengthened its military connections after agreeing a £110 million contract to supply transport services for the British Army.

Under the 10-year contract Lex Defence will provide transport services for fleet vehicles, including all support services for Aspire Defence on its Allenby/Connaught project to rebuild the garrisons around Salisbury Plain and in Aldershot.

The contract is renewable for a further 25 years and uses the infrastructure of Lex Defence’s existing £700 million contract with the Ministry of Defence.

A spokesman said: ‘Lex Defence currently delivers similar services to garrisons as part of an existing contract which will now be replaced by the project Allenby/Connaught contract.

‘Almost all of our existing activities will continue as part of this new contract.’
