AMMONNEWS - King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) announced on Sunday it has signed a contract to expand its ammunition factory with a key international company to increase its production capacity to 30 million rounds annually from several types of light weapons ammunition.

In a statement to Petra on Sunday, Major General (ret.) Mohammed Farghal, the Bureau's Director General, said KADDB's strategic plan since the establishment of its ammunition factory seeks to expand horizontally and vertically to produce most types of ammunition used in the Jordanian armed forces and security departments in economic quantities.

This expansion, he affirmed, enables Jordan to meet the local and regional demand for ammunition at "appropriate" prices, stressing such a step will not be the last.

Continuing:"The strategic plan includes increasing production of ammunition types in the future to manufacture medium and heavy ammunitions".

The workforce in ammunition factory are all Jordanians, and technology in the ammunition industry will be localized to maintain the KADDB's strategic objective in investing in the Jordanian human potential, Farghal announced.
