Winchester was recently awarded a contract for the construction of the Next Generation Squad Weapon – Ammunition (NGSW-A) manufacturing facility at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri.

The project, projected to begin in the second quarter of 2024, marks the first manufacturing facility to be built at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in decades.

This new manufacturing facility at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant will provide safe, reliable and advanced NGSW-A to the Joint Warfighter. Winchester will manage all aspects of the construction process. In addition, the new Lake City facility is slated to employ hundreds of people and, according to the company, will “utilize innovative and transformational small caliber ammunition manufacturing and safety processes.”

“A dedicated team of Winchester experts have been working on this project in collaboration with the U.S. Government and other industry stakeholders to design a state-of-the-art, small caliber ammunition manufacturing facility,” Brett Flaugher, president of Winchester Ammunition said.

Winchester continues to partner with the U.S. Army to bring transformational technology and capabilities to the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, as the NGSW-A manufacturing facility award arrives hot on the heels of the recent award from the U.S. Army to prop up manufacturing capabilities for the .50 Caliber Saboted Light Armor Penetrator (SLAP), which is scheduled to be ready for production in 2024.

More about Winchester and its longtime association with the United States Armed Forces: “Winchester is the largest supplier of small caliber ammunition to the U.S. military, providing advanced small caliber capabilities to the American Warfighter with manufacturing and engineering expertise. The Winchester legacy in support of the U.S. military runs deep, dating back to early 1900s.”
