ADS will be unveiling their new Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO) Solutions Truck at Warrior Expo West. I’m pretty excited to see it because I’ve been hearing about it for awhile now and every time I ask for details, I get the, “just wait, you’ll see…”
So the first thing you have to understand about the MRO Solutions Truck is that this isn’t your typical rolling hand tools supply truck. You could almost say that it’s a military mechanic’s wet dream. The MRO team at ADS has been doing their homework and talking to their customer. The result is virtually every item a military mechanic could possibly need or want. And like I said before, this goes way beyond standard hand tools, and includes equipment that is specific to the military’s unique needs, including carpentry and assembly, vehicle extrication, motor and drive train repair for up-armored vehicles, and much more. These are the tools that help accomplish military missions and keep the military running smoothly in any environment. While the truck itself might seem mild mannered, it’s what’s inside that counts.
The MRO Solutions Truck is built on a 26â€™ box truck and designed to showcase the highest quality MRO equipment from industry’s leading manufacturers. It’s not intended to deploy in its current configuration but rather visit military and government installations all over the country to show this set of solutions. Vendors include Proto, DeWalt, KD, Gearwrench, Stanley, Blackhawk Tools, Mac, VIDMAR, Sperian and more. You will be able to see the truck and its contents at the upcoming Warrior Expo West in San Diego, California next week.
Don’t forget, in the MRO section of the expo, you can also give the Joint Forces Extrication Kit a try.
