Truck maker Tatra secures contracts to supply chassis to Egyptian and Jordanian armies


Truck maker Tatra is to supply chassis for military vehicles to the Egyptian and Jordanian armies in deals worth a total of around CZK 800 million, reported on Tuesday. Tatra director Petr Rusek said the contracts had been agreed on a visit by Industry and Trade Minister Jan Mládek and a Czech delegation to the two states. Tatra, which is based in the Moravian town of Kopřivnice, went bankrupt three years ago. However, after being bought out by two Czech businessmen it saw a profit of nearly CZK 400 million last year.
