Austrian Federal Armed Forces and RUAG Ammotec seal partnership

Wiener Neudorf, 25 March 2019. Effective immediately, RUAG Ammotec and the Austrian Federal Armed Forces will be working together even more closely. The formal partnership was officially sealed with a military ceremonial act on 7 November 2018 at the military school in Bruckneudorf (Burgenland)....

This close cooperation between industry and the military is intended to systematically improve the understanding of military national defence through the exchange of experience at various levels. Georg Coester, General Manager of RUAG Ammotec Austria, is pleased about further strengthening the ties between the Federal Armed Forces and Austria’s market leader in ammunition sales:

“This partnership is unique for RUAG Ammotec Austria. Both sides are operating as long-term, reliable partners, mutually benefiting from know-how, jointly driving projects and organising topclass events with soldiers at the military school. Bundling our strengths and activities is certain to help considerably broaden the understanding of military national defence among the population.”
