Nammo Canada Inc. Established
Nammo expects Canadian Armed Forces to be a key customer for its products and services in the coming years. In order to be more present and provide the best possible service to the customer, the Group decided to establish Nammo Canada Inc. in Ottawa last February 2009.
On February the 6th 2009, on behalf of the Department of National Defence, Canada, Public Works and Government Services Canada awarded a contract to Nammo on M72 A5 with an estimated value of 217 MNOK. Deliveries will start in October 2009 and are foreseen completed by July 2010.
