The company was founded in 1955 by Robert Jankel and remains family owned. Today, Jankel is a global group of companies comprising of the UK Head Office company, Jankel Tactical Systems in USA and a partnership, Jordan Light Vehicle Manufacturing (JLVM), based in Jordan.
The Jankel brand refresh strengthens its existing position, brought to life in their new strapline: “Driving Mission Success”. This comes at the end of a strategic review that brought to the fore some key elements of the overall company ethos and brand values. Amongst the key findings of that process are: “People” are at the heart of everything Jankel does, customers, staff, suppliers and partners. “Mission Success”; which for Jankel is described as: giving customers not just what they want, but what they really need. “Innovative adaptability”; Jankel’s approach to mission success challenges assumptions, suggests alternative options, channels inspiration and adapts existing technologies. Finally, “engineering pedigree”; Jankel is driven by the same passion for engineering that Robert Jankel had when he first founded the business.

Multiple contracts for Civilian Armoured Vehicles (CAVs) have been won as well as other discrete and bespoke orders being received for overall survivability solutions, constantly “driving mission success”.
