Norwegian missile manufacturer Nammo has received board approval for the refurbishment of its production facility in Indian Head, Maryland, US.

The initiative was originally outlined in the company’s 2017 annual report and is set to involve an investment of up to $40m at the plant.

The development will also help generate several new manufacturing jobs in the region, which is expected to boost the local economy of Maryland.

“The initiative was originally outlined in the company’s 2017 annual report and is set to involve an investment of up to $40m at the plant.”

Nammo Energetics Indian Head (NEIH) president Pete Sioma said: “Through this investment we are following up on our commitment to the US Navy, we are generating new high-wage jobs in Maryland and adding to the half a billion dollars that the Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head already contributes to the state’s economy.

“This is good news for workers in both Indian Head and Charles counties.”

Nammo Energetics Indian Head (NEIH) previously signed a 30-year public-private partnership (P3) agreement with the US Naval Surface Warfare Centre Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NSWC IHEODTD) in January 2017.
