British Army Kit suppliers

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by Stockton96, Mar 29, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. How can i find out who supllies exactly what to the british army? For example who makes and sells the MOD the infantry bergan or who makes and sells the smocks.

    Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Ebay isn't it?
  3. Not so sure... Ebay only sells the specialist stuff issued to 'SAS/RM/PARA/SF'!
  4. Thnaks for that Stacker, but i need something more precise.

    I need something that tells me exactly what item is made by the exact company. for example the MOD issue assault is made by CQC i believe and the jumpers are made by remploy.
  5. Did you download the file and look at all the companies listed under each kind of product i.e. knitwear etc?

    TBH not sure one company produces anything any more. As far as I am aware several companies produce the same items (although don't take my word for that).
  6. Alternatively, you could look at:

    Lots of options, not just clothing. Every thing from Ablutions to X-ray equipment. Strangely, MOD don't seem to buy anything that begins with Y or Z.
  7. Isn't the bergan called the BERGHOUSE (can't spell) bergan?

  8. Go and read Combat and Survival, i'm sure you'll get the answer, or learn some booty history and Royal's links to Norway.
    Thin out Nod, until you have decent imput to this forum.

    Stockton96, try these blokes here.
    The factory their kit is from supplies the MOD with webbing & bergans from time to time.
  10. They procure furniture and mongs here
  11. Difficult to find companies who will admit to making kit for MOD or even Police or Government, as they are concerned about reprisals or other security problems that could beset them. Often they will set up new companies to fulfill the contracts, which will close down as soon as the contract is fulfilled or terminated.

    My HM Customs work uniforms are made by a well known company that has stores nationwide. But a completely different company name appears in the garments.
  12. Manchestercop, yes i also sell Rangemaster (who have supplied the MoD upon occasion) and Arktis. But the main manufacturer is CQC for "issue" items. Most of which i sell goes to those unable to obtain them through normal channels. Anyone with access to the defence intranet can peruse JSP 529 to see what is available the only problem would be the jobsworths in the stores not demanding them.
