VITORIA, BRAZIL, March 20, 2017—The VSK Group announces a joint agreement with Africa Automotive Distribution Service to represent the Jeep J8 to the Brazilian Armed forces and Federal Law Enforcement agencies. This agreement is entered after a recent announcement that AADS was awarded a $77,000,000 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for J8 Jeep tactical vehicles.
“There is a high demand for the modified Jeeps within the Armed forces and other government agencies”, said Vinicius Bocaiuva, VSK’s CEO. “We are pleased to have reached an agreement with AADS to allow us to fill the needs of these agencies.”
VSK has been working on brining the modified Jeep J8 design to the Brazil market since 2013. Bocaiuva said “the award to AADS by Jeep is exactly what we needed to finally bring the distribution of these vehicles to fruition.”
