Nammo Awarded Contract to Provide Sweden with 12.7mm Ammunition Until 2029

Nammo has signed a new contract with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV). The agreement sets up Nammo as the sole supplier of 12.7mm ammunition until 2029. The week before Easter Nammo signed a new framework contract with FMV in Sweden. This is a 7-year contract with different types of 12,7mm ammunition. Deliveries will come from both Nammo Palencia (Spain) and Nammo Raufoss (Norway). This means that Nammo is the only main supplier of 12,7mm ammunition to the Swedish Armed Forces for the coming 7 years. The initial contract value is 120 million Swedish kroner, but the end value could rise to around 500 million Swedish kroner if all options are used.
