Projects Rheinmetall NIOA Munitions
Under a Joint Venture arrangement between Rheinmetall Waffe Munition GmbH (RWM) and NIOA, Rheinmetall NIOA Munitions (RNM) is constructing a munitions forging facility in Maryborough, Queensland. The facility will produce 155mm artillery shells, and other related products. When in full operation, RNM will create up to 100 jobs in the Maryborough and Fraser Coast region. The $60 million facility has received support from the Federal Government Regional Growth Fund, and the Queensland State Government Jobs and Regional Growth Fund.
In an Australian first, the joint venture RNM is set to produce and export ammunition for the US F-35 Joint Strike Fighter programme from the Benalla facility, Victoria.
