Manroy, the East Sussex machine gun and ammunition manufacturer has won a contract to supply the UK MOD. Manroy will be given £1.6 million to supply parts for the .50 calibre heavy machine guns that it has sold to the MOD.
Manroy has stated that production will begin as soon as production capability permits, before the end of 2011. This suggests the purchase of new equipment, hiring, or plant expansion may be in the offing.
Manroy sells its machine guns to the UK MOD, as well as several other countries including in the Middle East.
