India has a long history of manufacturing ammunition for military use, with the Indian Ordinance Factories being amongst the oldest establishments in the South Asian region. With the changing dynamics of military weapons technology and the opening of vistas under “Make in India”, SSS Defence entered the fray with Stumpp Schuele Casings, the business unit catering to high quality Munitions for Military, Law Enforcement and Civilian use.
The platform is being driven in collaboration with Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos, Brazil (CBC, Brazil), the 2nd largest producer of ammunition globally. Our product range includes combat and premium projectiles, cartridge technology and commercial brands ranging from 9 mm to 12.7 mm ammunition. The product family that we bring to the Indian market include 9 mm, 5.56x45 mm, 7.62x51 mm, 7.62x39 mm, .338 Lapua and 12.7 mm ammunition. Most of this family complies with NATO standards. In addition to military use products, we shall also produce and market commercial ammunition for hunting and competition shooting.
SSS Defence was conceived with R & D being the centrepiece of our offerings and the Ammunition business has adhered to that intention. We have adopted and refined a collaborative approach at every level and are working with government and research agencies, identifying current and future needs and problems, adapting existing products and working with our Partner – CBC Brazil on the development of new, customized products or services.
