Jane’s is reporting that German tank manufacturer Krauss Maffei-Wegmann (KMW) has puchased GmbH Koch, a company that specializes in dismantling tanks and armored vehicles. According to Jane’s:
The company, which takes apart tanks at a facility in Rockensussra, Germany, is the only NATO-certified company to dismantle tanks, KMW said in a press release. The company has been shredding tanks since 1991, and has dismantled 16,000 military vehicles to date. Battle Tank Dismantling was previously owned by the Scholz Group, a scrapping company.
Here are a few images of vehicles at the GmbH Koch facility. (more images here.)
