RUAG Ammotec invests in the future

RUAG Ammotec increases production capacities and invests several million euros in new production technology

RUAG Ammotec, Europe's leading producer of ammunition, is significantly extending its production capacities and investing in new systems. This step has become necessary because of the high level of capacity utilisation in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Hungary and the USA. 

RUAG Ammotec was quick to recognise the signs and create additional production capacities. On the one hand, this increase in capacity is being achieved by taking on more staff and by intensifying shift operation, and on the other hand a major investment programme in the upper double-digit million range is to be implemented in the coming three years. It is the biggest project of its kind in the history of RUAG Ammotec.

"Expanding our production network across all our locations will ideally increase our current capacities. This is the only way for us to be able to meet the high international demand even better in future and reinforce our market position", states Cyril Kubelka, who has been the CEO of RUAG Ammotec and member of the Executive Board of RUAG for many years.

At the same time, the way in which capacities are being extended at RUAG Ammotec is also contributing considerably towards increasing the company's economic efficiency, which, in view of strong global competition, is of great significance.

RUAG is an international aerospace and defence technology company.  The headquarters of the holding company is in Berne (CH). RUAG has production sites in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Sweden and the United States. The company has around 7,700 employees worldwide, of which 5,000 are in Switzerland.
