Nexter unveiled the new name of its ammunition brand with the aim of consolidating its position in front of the competition and establishing its position as European leader in ammunition.

In 2014, Nexter acquired the Belgian and Italian companies Mecar and Simmel Difesa to develop the group’s ammunition activities alongside Nexter Munitions. This major operation allowed, on the one hand, to enrich the product range on all ammunition segments (artillery, tanks, medium-caliber, naval, infantry and mortars) and, on the other hand, to extend the international footprint of the group. This acquisition contributed to the consolidation of the European munitions industry.

Today, the group brings together its three subsidiaries, which are recognized for the

performance, reliability and safety of their products, under a single brand that is destined to become the European leader in munitions: Nexter Arrowtech.

Present in more than 60 countries, Nexter Arrowtech offers a wide catalogue of ammunition from 20 to 155mm produced to the highest levels of performance and reliability, and covering more than 80% of the NATO ammunition range. Nexter Arrowtech’s products are based on cutting-edge expertise and know-how, recognized by the French armed forces and numerous reference armies throughout the world. Nexter Arrowtech is ready to take up the technological challenges of tomorrow in order to meet its customers’ needs.

Nexter Arrowtech is a European company, reliable and innovative, serving its armed forces customers.

Nexter, part of the KNDS group, is the leading French land defense company and a key European player in the ammunition sector. The scope of its business includes as well the supply of weapon systems and ammunition for air and naval forces. Nexter also provides systems and protection solutions in the field of homeland security. The group continues to apply its international development policy with several order intakes in 2020 intended for the export market.

In France, Nexter is fully committed to meeting the objectives of the SCORPION program, through the upgrade of the Leclerc tank and the development of the VBMR GRIFFON and EBRC JAGUAR vehicles within the temporary business venture between Nexter, Thales and Arquus, as well as the Lightweight VBMR SERVAL.

The group’s range of products also includes TITUS® and VBCI armored vehicles, CAESAR® and 105LG1 artillery systems, smart ammunition (BONUS), robots, many equipment, as well as customer service, support and revaluation.

KNDS’s 2020 turnover amounted to €2.4 billion.
