National Defense Corp.’s Amtec subsidiary will supply 40-millimeter grenade systems to the U.S. Army as part of a potential $92.9 million contract modification.
The service branch also ordered M385A1 and M918 projectiles through the award and expects work to conclude by Feb. 28, 2023, the Department of Defense said Friday.
Janesville, Wisconsin-based Amtec received a four-year, $77.7 million contract in August 2017 for 40mm ammunition, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 30.
The company also manufactures precision fuzes, impact switches, initiators and firing devices for the defense sector.
Amtec’s website says its grenade ammo portfolio offers low- and high-velocity cartridges designed for tactical, training, illumination and non-lethal use.
