Chemring bags ammo order
Chemring Military Products (CMP) has received a second delivery order from the US Department of Defense (DoD) for Non-Standard Ammunition (NSA), valued at more than $29 million, it was announced on 15 June.
The order comes under a five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for NSA, which the company received from the US DoD in March 2016. The initial order was valued at over $18 million. The second order brings Chemring’s current contract value to over $47 million.
Non-Standard Ammunition is any weapon system or ammunition that the US DoD has not type-classified.
Michael Quesenberry, president, Chemring Military Products, said: ‘Chemring is very proud to support the Department of Defense and its Allies through Non-Standard Ammunition programmes. We appreciate the opportunity to continue this service to our nation.’
