The Finnish plant of the company Nammo Lapua, specializing in the production of ammunition, will increase its production fivefold this year due to the war in Ukraine.

This information is reported by Yle.

The plant, located in the city of Sastamala in the western part of the country, manufactures casings for artillery shells.

Nammo (Nordic Ammunition Company) is a jointly-owned Norwegian-Finnish company specializing in ammunition production. The company's shares are equally owned by the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Norway and the Finnish defense corporation Patria.

The increase in production at the Sastamala plant is linked to the war in Ukraine, as artillery shells play a crucial role in Finnish assistance to Ukraine and in replenishing the stockpiles of EU countries that had previously provided ammunition to Ukraine from their reserves.

It is also reported that Nammo has applied to participate in a European Union project to increase ammunition production. In the event of success, the company will build a new plant for the production of artillery shells. The project will also require funding from the Finnish government.
