GM Wins Contract to Provide Lumina Military Police Units At German Military Bases

DETROIT (ots-PRNewswire) - The Special Vehicles Operation (SVO) of the GM International Product Center (IPC) has secured a contract to produce 176 Lumina military police units for use at military bases in Germany. The order will be produced this month.

According to Donald P. Orlich, SVO international fleet and government sales, "In 1996, the U.S. Government Services Administration (GSA) began solicitations for vehicles to be delivered directly to an export country, which is our specialty. To date, we have been successful in receiving contracts totaling $34 million for passenger cars and light-duty trucks including the Lumina order."

The GSA has established an Office of Vehicle Acquisition and Leasing Services combining the former Vehicle Commodity Center and the Fleet Management Division which managed a combined U.S. and international fleet of 157,000 vehicles for Federal agencies.

SVO is working to establish the necessary infrastructure to provide aftersales support for GSA-user customers throughout Germany. The primary end users are AAFES (Army & Air Force Exchange Service-Europe), headquartered in Mainz-Kastel, Germany and the leasing division of the Interagency Fleet Management System, headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany. This latter unit, known as USAREUR-IFMS, will be replacing a fleet of 7,000 non-tactical vehicles for the U.S. Army in Germany over the next three years.
