By Defence Industry Europe

French defence industry company EURENCO has decided to increase its production capacity for large-caliber propellants, mainly for 155mm artillery ammunition, the company announced.

According to EURENCO, this investment will provide a large production capacity for propellants from 2025. It will complete the existing production line in Bergerac, thus providing a sovereign industrial tool.

“Eurenco is fully committed to the process of increasing production capacity and relocating strategic production and know-how in France for our armies and those of our allies,” said  Thierry Francou, Chairman and CEO of EURENCO.

This investment, carried out in close collaboration with the French Ministry of the Armed Forces and the he French Defense Procurement Agency (DGA) as part of the French defence industry’s capacity build-up and measures related to the War Economy, will be largely self-financed by EURENCO, the company said.

In parallel with this investment, EURENCO is also increasing its production capacity at its other sites in Europe.
