Authorised inspections, repairs, overhaul of Abrams tanks

Wojskowe Zakłady Motoryzacyjne S.A. has been designated as the entity responsible for supporting Polish Land Forces on behalf of PGZ and the Polish arms industry in securing maintenance, repairs, overhauls, as well as future modifications and modernisations of Abrams tanks.

As a Competence Centre, especially for the M1A1FEP and M1A2 SEPv3 versions, WZM S.A. will be responsible for the maintenance of these platforms throughout the entire life cycle of this equipment, for the next 30-50 years. This is in line with the implementation of the basic mission of WZM S.A. to guarantee full technical efficiency and functionality of the tanks operated in specific units, so that they can defend Polish borders and Poles.

WZM S.A. started to build potential in this area with its own funding back in 2021 and is now ready to take the first units of these tanks into service.

Of key importance is the strategic partnership with Abrams tank manufacturer GDLS. According to Vice President Chris Brown, „When reviewing all potential partners in this part of Europe, WZM, with the participation of PGZ, outdistanced the competitors”. WZM S.A. is ready to secure the equipment in question not only for the Polish Armed Forces, but also for the US Army troops stationed in Poland, as well as for the entire European region and the countries that will exploit the platform in the future.
