Our range of rapidly deployable mobile bridging systems - the Medium Girder Bridge and the Dry Support Bridge - provide unrestricted manoeuvrability and interoperability, can be deployed in minutes and are used by coalition forces on operations worldwide and in civilian aid operations for humanitarian relief in disaster zones, currently in service with the British Army, U.S. Army and many other NATO forces around the world.
Manually built and semi-automated bridge variants are available, offering up to 120 MLC and integrated onto a variety of both tracked and wheeled military vehicle platforms. WFEL is a long-established Prime Contractor to both the UK Ministry of Defence and U.S Department of Defense and operates a global sales network through overseas representatives and works directly with international governments and Non-Governmental Organisations.
Following a contract signing with ARTEC - a joint venture between KMW (Krauss-Maffei Wegmann) and Rheinmetall - WFEL has been selected as the KMW UK footprint for the manufacture of Boxer Armoured vehicles for the British Army and will deliver an outstanding level of UK local content.
WFEL is highly experienced in the provision of turnkey solutions to support and extend the lifespan and operational performance of our tactical military bridging systems. We aim to ensure that the end-user gains maximum return from any bridging investment and that required availability levels are sustained throughout the life of each bridging system.
Since 1915, when it was originally founded as the Fairey Aviation Company, WFEL has been a pioneer of engineering excellence and innovation across the defence sector, for both Land and Air based solutions. Today, as an established leader in tactical military bridging, supplying gap-crossing solutions across the world for over four decades and as a key partner in the UK MoD's Boxer Armoured Vehicles Programme, WFEL is justifiably proud of its engineering excellence, strong heritage and high-quality engineering.
