ATK wins $16m in orders for non-standard ammunition

27th April 2011 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ATK has received more than $16 million in non-standard (non-NATO) ammunition orders through a multi-year contract with the US Army Contracting Command in Rock Island, Ill. Orders on the multi-year contract have totaled more than $177 million since it was awarded to ATK in December, 2008.

The ATK-provided supplies are critical for Afghan and coalition security forces to respond to internal and external threats. Under this contract, ATK provides technical oversight, quality assurance and supply chain management necessary to deliver non-standard small, medium, and large-caliber ammunition; aviation rockets; grenades; and mortars to Kabul, Afghanistan. In the two years ATK has been supplying non-standard ammunition and weapons to Afghanistan, deliveries have been consistently ahead of schedule.

"International growth is a key part of ATK's strategy," said ATK Armament Systems President Karen Davies, "and our ability to win this business and perform above expectations supports that effort."
