About United Defense
The first order for amphibious landing craft came in 1941 with a form from the military that simply said "Buy 1,000 LVTs — Food Machinery Corporation". During World War II, FMC produced more than 10,000 armored vehicles. Similarly, Bowen-McLaughlin York (later BMY, a division of Harsco) also began building tanks. For the last half century, both companies provided the military with high quality, reliable equipment. More than 100,000 systems have been produced.
In response to the complexities of today's military industrial base and technology developments in a declining market, FMC and Harsco merged their defense units into United Defense LP in 1994. Business conditions for the two conglomerates then lead to an exit strategy from the defense sector.
The Carlyle Group bought United Defense in October 1997. United Defense has the widest product line of systems for land forces and a strong position in naval armaments. United Defense has its headquarters in Arlington, VA and its 5100 employees serve their customers on a global basis.
