General Dynamics increases the production capacity of 155mm artillery shells

General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems (OTS), a business unit of General Dynamics, announced it has been awarded a $217 million task order to increase 155mm artillery projectile metal parts production at its northeast Pennsylvania operations.

This task order, awarded under a recently modified $1.48 billion U.S. Army contract supporting the manufacture of large-caliber projectile metal parts and mortar shell bodies, will fund the modernization and expansion of 155mm projectile metal parts capacity at the Scranton Army Ammunition Plant and General Dynamics Wilkes-Barre facility, with both ramping up production by the end of fiscal year 2025.



“We take great pride in the U.S. Army’s decision to further invest in its industrial partners and for General Dynamics to play such an important role in accelerating new artillery production capacity,” said Kevin Wall, senior vice president and general manager at General Dynamics-OTS. “In close collaboration with the US Army, our teams are taking great strides to achieve critical increases in artillery production”.
