SOUTH BEND, Ind. — AM General has been awarded a $90.5 million contract to restore and upgrade hundreds of Army National Guard Humvees at a northern Indiana factory.

The South Bend-based company says the contract will have it work on up to 760 Humvees in the factory where the vehicles were built for the U.S. military for many years.

Company spokesman Jeff Adams tells the South Bend Tribune that preliminary work on the contract has started at the factory where AM General recalled more than 200 laid-off workers last month.

Adams says the contract include updating the National Guard Humvees with up-to-date equipment and providing spare parts.
