Service Hubs

Service close to the customer

Wherever necessary, Rheinmetall Service offers the option of providing its services on site utilising its own infrastructure. These service hubs are the customer's central point of support in the country of operation and form the interface to Rheinmetall in Germany.  Adapted to the local conditions and for maximum flexibility, we offer two possible solutions:

  1. Static at a permanent location including fixed infrastructure and security.
  2. Temporarily at short notice with a fully equipped workshop marquee or in rented existing facilies.

With both solutions, the customer can rely on the comprehensive service we offer for his their fleet

Service Hub Satu Mare – RLS Service Support for Ukrainian Marder 1A3

The Satu Mare Service Hub is a repair centre located in the immediate vicinity of the Ukrainian border in the northern part of Romania. A fully equipped site for combat battle damage repair (BDR) was established here in a very short period of time to ensure the operational availability of the Marder IFV delivered to Ukraine by Rheinmetall.

To ensure that the service hub can be used quickly and concurrently, RLS has introduced standardisation in the workshop concept and equipment.

Depending on requirements and the systems requiring repair, crane lift capability or storage capacities can be tailored.

The aim of this standardisation and modularity is to ensure rapid worldwide operational availability. This was achieved for the Service Hub in Romania within a few weeks after the initial order being placed.
