RAUFOSS, Norway, Sept. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aerospace & defence supplier, Nammo, is continuing its international expansion with the establishment of Nammo Polska Sp. z o.o. in Warsaw. The move means that the Group will now be present in 11 countries across 3 continents.
"We need to be where our customers are," says Morten Brandtzæg, newly appointed President & CEO of the Nammo Group.
"Nammo Polska will be our base for continued growth and cooperation with both the Polish Armed Forces and the Defense Industry. A stronger presence in Poland will give us the opportunity to follow up and assure our performance in the country."
During the past 10 years, Nammo has worked closely with the Polish defense industry, helping it to support the armed forces with high-end medium caliber ammunition. As a result, Poland has become one of Nammo's most important markets in Europe.
Nammo has also been instrumental in supporting the Polish defense industry in establishing a modern and environmentally friendly demilitarization capacity.
A Polish partner has been chosen to develop an important component to Nammo's 25 mm APEX ammunition for the F-35 program. The APEX ammunition is the most advanced next generation multi-role ammunition for fighter aircraft.
Following a decade of success in Poland, the establishment of Nammo Polska is a logical step to further develop the cooperation and growth in the country.
The Nammo Group is a high-technology supplier to the aerospace & defence industry. Its core businesses are military and sporting ammunition; shoulder launched munitions; rocket motors and actuators for aerospace applications; and environmentally friendly demilitarization. Nammo has 2,200 employees located in 10 countries.
