Land Rover Global Direct Sales and Hobson Industries will work as strategic partners to offer a unique solution focussing primarily on the supply of military legacy parts. Terry Hill, Global Direct Sales Director, Land Rover, commented on the partnership: “We really value our military business and our long-running relationship with the UK Ministry of Defence. Through this milestone agreement with Hobson Industries, we are able to showcase our continued commitment to the MoD and to the support of the fleet long after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired.” Land Rover has supplied vehicles to the Ministry of Defence for Light Vehicle usage since 1948.
