NIOA has been awarded a major Defence contract to supply more than 30 different munitions to Australian military over the next five years.
The five year contract is initially valued at $95 million, with an option to extend to 15 years. This contract ensures the ADF will have a reliable source of munitions, ranging from small arms to 120mm M1A1 Abrams tank ammunition.
NIOA will source the munitions from their internal partners; Rheinmetall Waffe Munitions, Orbital ATK and Vista Outdoors.
The company has developed a purpose-built facility adjacent to Brisbane Airport which includes a state-of-the-art indoor firing range enabling weapon and ammunition testing in controlled conditions.
Established in 1973, NIOA is Australia’s largest privately-owned company supplying weapons, ammunition and technical support to commercial, military and law enforcement markets.
