Stewart & Stevenson was founded in 1902 in Houston, Texas, where the company still maintains corporate headquarters. The company's rich history of designing, manufacturing, distributing, and servicing wheeled vehicles spans the 20th century. 

Stewart & Stevenson Tactical Vehicle Systems, LP (TVS) designs, manufactures and supports the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) for the U.S. Army and other customers worldwide.  The FMTV family of vehicles includes sixteen variants on two basic platforms, the 4 X 4 Light Medium Tactical Vehicle (LMTV) and the 6 X 6 Medium Tactical Vehicle (MTV), with about 85% parts commonality across the FMTV family.

The FMTV has set new worldwide tactical vehicle standards for capability, reliability, mobility, and transportability, and continues to boast the highest percent availability of any vehicle in the U.S. Army tactical vehicle fleet.  TVS has manufactured approximately 25,000 FMTV vehicles since the start of the program in 1988.

Stewart & Stevenson has recently developed the Low Signature Armored CAB (LSAC), which adds ballistic and mine blast protection for the crew in a purpose built cab that can be interchanged with a standard FMTV cab in 8 hours.
