Rheinmetall's U.S. organizations include American Rheinmetall Systems, American Rheinmetall Vehicles, American Rheinmetall Munitions and American Rheinmetall Defense. The operating companies have established engineering and production capabilities that allow them to modify existing products and develop new solutions that meet the priority requirements of their US customers. These products consist of, but are not limited to, game-changing solutions for next-generation vehicles, innovations for increased soldier lethality, and advanced high-tech munitions.


At American Rheinmetall Vehicles, we believe in satisfied customers and healthy, engaged employees. We listen to our customers and develop transformational technology that delivers necessary military vehicle capabilities to our Warfighters while also providing challenging and fulfilling careers to our employees.

We are committed to supporting critical advancements in the United States defense industry, like the U.S. Army’s XM30 Infantry Combat Vehicle (ICV) program, which will replace the Army’s Bradley infantry fighting vehicle with a modernized ICV. Our team has recently won a contract award to advance to Phases 3 and 4 of the program where vehicle design will continue, followed by the prototype build of a small number of vehicles to be tested by the Army. Our solution for the XM30 program, along with our other next-generation tracked and wheeled vehicle systems, empowers and protects the members of our U.S. Armed Forces and ensure their safe return home.

In the past two years, we have secured an order intake of about $750 million. We have greatly increased our workforce and are continuing to do so at a rapid pace in order to staff our new facility and support our goals as we continue to grow our business. If you are interested in a meaningful career that directly supports our Warfighters, we encourage you to apply today!
