Rheinmetall, Netherlands extend ammunition deal

16th January 2013 - 14:55 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rheinmetall has announced that it has signed a contract to extend an existing agreement with the Dutch armed forces for the supply of various ammunition types. The new 7-year agreement, signed in December, will run to the end of 2019.

The decision will extend the current agreement, which dates from 2007, for the mutual benefit of both parties. According to Rheinmetall, the decision ‘reflects the longstanding mutual trust that characterises relations between Rheinmetall and the Dutch armed forces’. At the same time, ‘it sets the stage for intensified long-term cooperation that will benefit both sides’.

Rheinmetall supplies a variety of ammunition types in many different calibres to the Dutch Army, including service and practice versions as well as propelling technology. The partnership agreement provides the Dutch military with a reliable, long-term source of supply for ammunition, as well as a streamlined procurement process.
