ATK Awarded to Supply Non-Standard Ammunition for Afghanistan

ATK : 06 December, 2008  (Special Report)
Alliant Techsystems has been awarded an $87 million contract by the U.S. Army Sustainment Command in Rock Island, Ill., to supply various types of non-standard (non-NATO) ammunition in support of emergent requirements for Afghan National Security Forces.
ATK, in partnership with Allied Defense Group , has worked diligently to identify, qualify, and integrate a team of international manufacturers dedicated to the on-time delivery of quality non-standard ammunition.

Under this contract, Team ATK will provide the technical and supply chain
management expertise necessary to mitigate supply chain risks that could
impede, or prevent, the continuous flow of compliant non-standard ammunition
to our Afghan allies. ATK will utilize capable international manufacturers
and distributors with the ability to supply non-standard small, medium, large
caliber Ammunition and rockets.

'This award validates our pursuit of new international growth
opportunities that are transforming ATK into a world class integrator of
global defense systems,' said Mark DeYoung, President, ATK Armament Systems.
'ATK's supply chain expertise enabled us to offer affordable quality products
from geographically dispersed regions to satisfy these emerging customer
requirements.'
