02/02/2010 - CBC Group awarded ammunition contracts with Nordic Police Forces

<p>The ammunition brands Magtech (www.magtechammunition.com) and MEN (www.elisenhuette.de), both part of the CBC Group, were awarded in December important 9x19mm ammunition contracts with police forces from Nordic Countries, including Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Magtech was the winner of the tender for training ammunition and MEN won the competition for service rounds. Together, they are expected to deliver over 80 million rounds during the contracts' period. The Nordic countries traditionally purchase ammunition for their police forces in a unified manner. This tender is considered one of the largest and most important in Europe. With strict technical requirements and extensive testing, it is also one of the most difficult. "We are proud to succeed in this tender with two of our brands. Supplying ammunition to the Nordic countries was one of our main priorities, in line with our strategy to achieve a leadership position in the European Police market", said Mr. Antonio Marcos Moraes Barros, President of CBC Group. Magtech ammunition is produced at the CBC factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and MEN is manufactured in the city of Nassau, in Germany. The CBC Group, which also includes the factory Sellier&Bellot, from Czech Republic, has delivered Law Enforcement ammunition to over 30 countries in Europe. The Group is among the 3 biggest ammunition producers in the world. José Sílvio T. Mambrim Phone: +55 11 2139 8202 Fax: +55 11 2139 8323 E-mail: jsmambrim@cbc.com.br</p>
