This multi-year contract calls for the construction of a new production line jointly operated by Eurenco and Day & Zimmerman in the USA, and the production of over one million modular 155mm Modular Artillery Charge System per year, for and to the standards of the US Army. Eurenco and D&Z previously announced their partnership to pursue US Army contracts and recently teamed with Batelle Memorial Institute to pursue the Operations and Management contract of the Holst on Army Ammunition Plant (HSAAP).

For Thierry Francou, Chairman and CEO of Eurenco Group, "This is a great success that we share with our partner Day & Zimmerman and a major step for Eurenco in the US. Our new production line in Texarkana (Texas) will complement our current fuel additive activities in Houston. We are particularly proud of this new mark of confidence and recognition of our high-level technical know-how in the field of energetic materials".

“Day & Zimmermann is pleased to continue our proud legacy of supporting the Army and our warfighters around the world,” said Mike Yoh, President of D&Z Munitions and Government. “We are on the forefront of the critical need to modernize the production of US munitions, and along with Eurenco and the full breadth of D&Z’s design, construction and munitions production experience and capabilities, we stand ready to support the Army, our country and its allies.”
