Vihtavuori, Finland – During Vihtavuori’s recent 100th anniversary celebration, Nammo Group CEO, Morton Brandzaeg, announced plans for the construction of a new Vihtavuori primer factory while delivering his keynote speech to strategic partners in both military and civilian markets.

The EUR 33 million investment will help ensure the security of supply needs for Nordic defense forces and will bolster the resilience of Nammo’s supply chain. The new primer factory is scheduled for completion in 2025 to meet military needs, with consumer sales as early as 2027.
