Overview

Horstman is an agile small business comprising businesses units in the UK, US, and Canada.  Providing world leading design and manufacturing capabilities, our customers benefit from our time-tested pedigree in innovation, product development manufacture, and defence project management in heavy armoured and tracked vehicle suspension systems.

Horstman led the world in the 1920’s with the development of the independent suspension bogie that bears its name, and the company’s influence features on tanks and wheeled vehicles to this day.

With over a hundred highly skilled employees in the UK, US and Canada, we are a high value added,  innovative engineering business with a global footprint in both customer base and supply chain. We provide a quality, technically excellent offering to solve customers’ problems, throughout the product lifecycle.

The defence heavy armour business has arduous development and testing cycles to ensure that the serving soldier has the best combination of armour, firepower, and mobility that they deserve. Horstman provides this balance to our customers - having built our talent base over decades from a combination of industry experts, service veterans and continuous investment in apprenticeships, graduates, and training.
