Stewart and Stevenson



From a company brochure: The company was founded in 1902 by blacksmith Jim Stewart and carriage maker Joe R. Stevenson. It made diesel driven saws for the timber industry in the 1930s. During World War II the company overhauled US Army trucks and Jeeps, and built diesel powered generators.

1990s: Perry Engineering (.au) with Stewart & Stevenson bid for the Australian Army's Project Bushranger Infantry Mobility Vehicle (IMV) with the Bushmaster 4x4.

Stewart and Stevenson Services Tactical Vehicle Systems Division delivered 2.5-ton 4x4, and 5-ton 6×6, trucks from the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) to the US army ~mid 1996.

Stewart and Stevenson also made the SS300 high mobility 8×8 truck with a 2.5-ton payload.

2005 April: Stewart and Stevenson Services Inc. bought Automotive Technik Holdings Limited (ATL), of the UK, makers of Pinzgauer 4x4 and 6x6s.

2006: S&S was bought by Armor Holdings Inc..

2007: Armor Holdings, and thus Stewart and Stevenson, were bought by BAE Systems (UK).
