New name, same mission: RTD becomes ARQUUS

Faced with growing geostrategic complexity and to better meet customer’s needs, Volvo Group Governmental Sales (Renault Trucks Defense, ACMAT Defense, Panhard Defense) has decided to change its identity by founding ARQUUS. The company is reinventing itself through a new model, a new strategy a new organization. This new entity is Arquus, European specialist of medium and light wheeled armored vehicles.
The name Arquus comes from two Latin roots: arma and equus. Equus is the horse that endows the soldier with mobility on the battlefield. Arma are the weapons, the vehicles’ armament.
Arquus is thus a concentration of armis equus: the warhorse, the soldier’s trusted companion in battle. Arma is also the root of the word armor. Protected mobility is indeed an integral part of Arquus’ DNA.
