Real-world story here. A local company called Spartan Motors custom builds fire trucks. In 2008, they were also producing MRAPs as a subcontractor for BAE. Using civilian/commercial vehicle companies to make a more armored or specialized version is not unreasonable, especially if MP is making fire trucks and rescue vehicles for municipalities as a company cover.
