Orbital ATK and Lake City Army Ammunition Plant: A Proud Heritage of Service


For more than 75 years, members of the United States Armed Forces and its allies have depended on the quality and reliability of small-caliber ammunition manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) in Independence, Missouri, to defend freedom around the globe.

Orbital ATK has operated the Lake City facility since 2000, producing more than 17 billion rounds of small-caliber ammunition for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

In addition to manufacturing ammunition for the DoD, Orbital ATK’s Lake City facility also produces high-quality ammunition for commercial customers, allowing the company to maintain a well-trained workforce capable of ramping up warfighter ammunition production in hours instead of months. By remaining at a constant state of readiness, Orbital ATK is able to rapidly respond to the ever-changing demands of our nation’s armed forces.

All cartridges produced for the U.S. Army and Orbital ATK’s commercial customers are made in the United States. Purchasing cartridges from Orbital ATK’s commercial partners supports American jobs not only at Lake City but also hundreds of suppliers providing raw materials, propellant, tooling, packaging and other supplies.

All Lake City ammunition, whether for military or commercial use, is manufactured in the same facility, utilizing the same processes and quality-control standards. Orbital ATK partners with several commercial companies to provide cartridges and components for their ammunition needs. As a leader in aerospace and defense technologies, Orbital ATK and the Lake City facility maintain the critical skills, personnel, and technical manufacturing capabilities essential to successfully deliver high quality, small-caliber ammunition from development to production.
