The company GDELS-Deutschland GmbH with headquarters in Berlin concentrates the activities of General Dynamics European Land Systems in Germany. GDELS, a European company of the General Dynamics Corporation with more than 2,400 employees, is one of the leading manufacturers in the field of ground-based vehicle and combat systems. It has production locations and business offices throughout Europe: in Germany, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Romania and the Czech Republic.
Its product portfolio includes not only armored wheeled and tracked vehicles (ASCOD, PIRANHA, EAGLE), but also (amphibious) bridge and ferry systems (M3/IRB) and mobile bridges. With over 4,500 European suppliers and partners, GDELS provides reliable support for its 45 customers all over the world. These include 20 NATO and EU member states that rely on products and services from GDELS; for years now the German Armed Forces has also successfully utilized the heavily armored wheeled vehicle, EAGLE, and different bridge systems (M3, FSB and BIBER).
In 2018, we expanded our service business, which was already successfully established in Kaiserslautern, by the acquisition of FWW Fahrzeugwerk GmbH, a certified maintenance, repair and service business for military vehicles and equipment with headquarters in Neubrandenburg. Today GDELS employs roughly 600 workers in Germany.
