NIOA and Colt’s Manufacturing Company LLC have agreed to assemble and manufacture small arms in Australia.

NIOA and Colt’s Manufacturing Company LLC have agreed to assemble and manufacture small arms in Australia.

The agreement provides the framework to enable NIOA to undertake manufacture of Colt’s renowned small arms product range in Australia and integrate itself into Colt’s global supply chain.

The agreement was confirmed at the SHOT Show 2017 in Las Vegas between Robert Nioa, managing director of NIOA and Kenneth Juergens, senior vice president government and military programs at Colt.

NIOA is the current provider of Colt small arms for the Australian Special Forces and law enforcement communities, and is committed to maximising Australian industry capability in the provision of support to Australian agencies.

This agreement will allow NIOA to offer the Australian government expanded domestic opportunities for future small arms procurements.

The agreement also demonstrates NIOA's growing capability as an SME to support the Defence and law enforcement markets in Australia and shows the close company relationship between NIOA and Colt.
