NIOA has executed a strategic teaming agreement with Day & Zimmermann at AUSA in Washington, with the arrangement set to boost support for the Australian Defence Force.

The companies said that the agreement is a move to build a deeper relationship to support the growth of sovereign munitions capability in Australia, and builds on recent contract success such as a four-year supply program of 81mm mortar ammunition for the ADF.

“As a 100 per cent Australian company, we are committed to developing true sovereign capability for the benefit of the Australian warfighter," said NIOA managing director Robert Nioa.

"Strengthening our partnership with Day & Zimmermann forms yet another enabler to this outcome.”

In December last year, NIOA, as Day & Zimmermann's teaming partner, received an order for 81mm HE and Practice Mortar Rounds to support the Australian Army, with works to be performed in Parsons, Kansas, American Ordnance in Burlington, Iowa, and in Texarkana, Texas.

“Supporting Australia, one of America’s closest allies, is a true honour,” said Mike Yoh, president of munitions and government at Day & Zimmermann, at the time of the signing.

"We are excited to partner with NIOA and provide the Australian Army the highest quality 81mm mortars to support annual training efforts as well as any operational deployments."

Representing NIOA at the signing of the strategic teaming agreement at AUSA were Matthew Cliff (director of business development), Doreen Chaplin (North American regional manager) and Antoni Furman (Army programs manager), while Day & Zimmermann were represented by Yoh, James Estabrooks (VP finance), Paul Heidenreich (senior VP business development), Steve Cummings (VP business development), Dan McKenrick (VP operations) and George Kurzik (director business development).
