Chemring Military Products, Inc. (“CMP”), a subsidiary of the Chemring Group PLC (“Chemring”), announced today that it has been awarded a major contract with the U.S. Government to supply non-U.S. standard ammunition (NSA) for the Department of Defense (“DoD”). This is an award of a $42.1M Firm Fixed Price (FFP) delivery order. This award is for a one year delivery period of various NSA items to foreign governments and international organizations eligible for the transfer of military defense items under U.S. Foreign Military Sales (FMS).
