Nammo Lapua plant to increase production of shells fivefold

In Finland, the ammunition plant of the defense company Nammo Lapua plans to increase its production fivefold in 2024. This is due to the fact that artillery shells are the basis of Helsinki's assistance to Ukraine.

This was announced by the company's regional director Ilkka Heikila on Sunday, February 4, Yle reports. According to him, Nammo Lapua has applied to participate in the European Union's ASAP project (Ammunition Support Act), which provides for the production of one million shells a year.

The plant, which produces shells for artillery shells, is located in the city of Sastamala in western Finland. The project will also require funding from the national government.

"The increase in production at the plant in Sastamala, which produces shells for artillery shells, is related to the war in Ukraine, as artillery shells play a key role in Finnish aid to Ukraine," the statement said.

Nammo (Nordic Ammunition Company) is a Norwegian-Finnish company specializing in the production of ammunition. The company's shares are equally divided and owned by the Norwegian Ministry of Trade and Industry and the Finnish defense corporation Patria.
