Dayton Business Journal  /  March 23, 2020

One of the Dayton region's largest manufacturers is part of a lucrative contract with the U.S. Army. Work will be handled locally.

Navistar Defense, a Melrose Park, Illinois-based company that is a subsidiary of Navistar International Corp., won an $11.4 million deal for general transport trucks, recovery vehicles and spare parts. Work will be performed at the company's Springfield facility, as well as a location in Ooltewah, Tennessee.

The foreign military sales deal will support the government of Iraq, according to the U.S. Department of Defense. Work is expected to be complete by Feb. 21, 2021. Navistar beat out four other companies for the contract, which was delivered by the U.S. Army Contracting Command in Michigan.

The contract is significant as it will bring in a substantial amount of new work for the company's Springfield operation. It also helps strengthen Navistar's relationship with the military, and may lead to future deals.

Navistar is the fourth-largest manufacturing company in the Dayton region. It has more than 2,100 local employees and 2.1 million square feet of manufacturing space, where it produces medium, heavy-duty and severe service trucks.

Navistar also is one of the Dayton area's 20 largest employers.
