ATK ammunition contract


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
ATK
: 03 October, 2009  (Company News)
ATK has received an initial $105 million contract award as part of a three-year contract by the U.S. Army Sustainment Command in Rock Island, Ill., to supply various types of non-standard (non-NATO) ammunition for the security forces of Afghanistan.
If all options are fully exercised, the contract value could potentially exceed $200 million. This is ATK's second contract from the U.S. Army to supply non-standard (non-NATO) Ammunition for the security forces of Afghanistan. The first $87 million contract award was announced in December 2008.

In this new contract, ATK will integrate a larger team of international manufacturers for the delivery of non-standard (non-NATO) munitions, including small, medium and large-caliber ammunition, as well as mortars and rockets. ATK's program and technical expertise, coupled with its global supply chain management capability, will ensure continued timely deliveries of quality non-standard (non-NATO) Ammunition to Afghanistan.

'ATK continues to expand its global presence through international outreach initiatives,' said Mark DeYoung, President ATK Armament Systems. 'By using ATK's core strengths and the in-depth knowledge gained during the original Afghanistan non-standard Ammunition program, we are providing low-risk armament systems solutions to meet the continuously emerging requirements of our customers.'
