Milrem LCM is now Milworks
Milworks is the new name for Milrem LCM. The name change supports better the company’s identity and its actual operations. It was also done to avoid any confusion with Milrem Robotics, which is a spin-off from Milrem LCM (now Milworks) in 2017. The companies have different focus, owners and operations, which will now be better signaled through this name change to Milworks. Milrem Robotics keeps the trademark Milrem and will continue with its current name.
