The MoU is expected to deliver the ADF with 81mm HE and practice mortar ammunition for four years. It is hoped that the deal will also allow Day & Zimmermann to realise additional export markets for their products in Australia.

Robert Nioa, chief executive of NIOA, welcomed the agreement.

“As a 100 per cent Australian company, we are committed to developing true sovereign capability for the benefit of the Australian warfighter, he said.

“Taking this latest step in our partnership with Day & Zimmermann further strengthens that commitment.”

Michael Yoh, president of Day & Zimmermann Munitions and Government, likewise welcomed the MoU.

“We look forward to continuing to work with NIOA in meeting the ammunition requirements for the Australian Defence Forces. Day & Zimmermann’s core competencies in the design and production of ammunition coupled with our many years of operating ammunition plants for the US Army makes us a great partner in complementing NIOA in Australia.  We are excited about this continued partnership and look forward to many more years of collaboration with the NIOA team,” Yoh said.

NIOA was founded in 1973 and has delivered weapons and ammunition support to the ADF. Day & Zimmermann currently produce munitions for the US military and possess 40mm, tank, grenade, mortar and artillery production capabilities.
