posted on 20/02/2013: 2966 views

The ammunition manufacturer and Tawazun subsidiary, Caracal Light Ammunition (CLA), yesterday signed a supply agreement with US-based firm Century Arms which will see them enter a partnership for the next five years.

Under the agreement, CLA will supply Century Arms two million rounds of two different types of its ammunition - the 9mm and the 5.56 - each month for the first year. From the second year onwards, the UAE-based firm will produce four million rounds of each type per month.

The new deal will see Century Arms introduce the CLA products to the US market, with a focus on the armed forces and the police sector.

Mohammed Al Ghafli, General Manager of CLA, said: "This new agreement is a gateway that will see us extend our reach and attract new customers in a booming market. As the UAE continues to develop itself as a manufacturing hub, it is really exciting that products made in the UAE are being recognised in international markets through successful export deals with leading industry players such as Century Arms." The CLA facility is located in the defence manufacturing zone, Tawazun Industrial Park in Ajban, which is located between Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

Century Arms is North America's largest importer of surplus firearms, ammunition, and accessories, catering to collectors, hunters and shooters for over 50 years. Century Arms has experience in dealing directly with sporting goods retailers and wholesalers worldwide through an established network of distribution. In addition to surplus goods, it also carries newly manufactured firearms, knives, swords, ammunition, scopes and related accessories - Emirates News Agency, WAM
