Foundation stone laid for major ammunition contract: Rheinmetall to serve as the Dutch armed forces’ chief supplier for another decade20 June 2019
Rheinmetall and the Dutch procurement authority Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) have renewed their partnership agreement for the supply of ammunition through to the end of 2030. For Rheinmetall, this agreement holds the prospect of order volume worth several hundred million euros during the 10-year period.
The partnership agreement, signed on 3 June 2019 in Utrecht in the Netherlands, is a prime example of the excellent working relationship between DMO and Rheinmetall as a strategic supplier of weapons and ammunition. DMO is eager to ensure that the Dutch military has a steady supply of safe, secure, state-of-the-art ammunition – now and in future.
“We’re proud of our strong partnership with DMO, one that’s built on mutual trust and a powerful commitment to innovation," Werner Krämer declared, managing director of Rheinmetall Waffe Munition GmbH. “After successfully cooperating for ten years, we now look forward to another decade of supplying the Koninklijk Landmacht with superb service and top technology.”
