Chilean Army Factory and Armory opens New Industrial Maintenance Center

first_imgSupport for the CMIF began after FAMAE reported $2.6 million in profits during fiscal year 2014, recording sales of $56.1 million that year — an increase of 7.38 percent compared to 2013. Its supply division, which acquires replacement parts, raw materials and direct purchases, contributed 50 percent of FAMAE’s total revenue; its services section, which maintains armored vehicles, contributed 33 percent of its revenue. Product portfolio Sincerely,Tony Lyons.Eng. Mgr.Cell: 713 349 3773www.robcoamerica.com FAMAE’s also planning to manufacture ammunition under international standards, such as those of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Currently, it maintains commercial relations with the United States, Canada, Israel, Spain, Germany, Uruguay and Ecuador. The facility was built to improve maintenance for the entire ground fleet of the 3rd Armored Brigade “La Concepción” in the north while providing services to other countries; the project is part of FAMAE’s strategic plan, which also includes other investments intended to strengthen support for the Army and other branches of the country’s Armed Forces. It’s also working to open its “business portfolio, with both products and services, to other potential international markets at a competitive cost,” said FAMAE Director and Brigadier General Mauricio Heine. Building on positive results The Colombian service members were accompanied on a tour of the light armament and ammunition plants, and the industrial maintenance center, where they learned the company’s capabilities and its maintenance services and solutions. The service members also participated in shooting practice on the firing range. Brigadier General Heine attributed the company’s success to its employees’ focus on research and innovation. “We have been able to come up with solutions to problems of obsolete technology with recycling materials and more efficient designs of products and services,” he added. We would like to offer our services for your future sealing requirements. The Chilean Army Factory and Armory (FAMAE) opened its new Industrial Maintenance Center (CMIF), a 1,335 square-meter complex in the northern city of Antofagasta, on July 16. Among the designs FAMAE is developing for the international market is a new version of the SG 542-1 (5.56mm) rifle, which includes ergonomic and interface elements that allow the user to incorporate accessories and enable the soldier to use the weapon better.

Therefore, we will be able to keep the portfolio using a product family concept.” During its 204-year history, FAMAE – the oldest Military government-owned company in Latin America – has a record of developing technological innovations to meet market demands. Armed Forces officials from countries throughout the region often visit FAMAE facilities. “They come to learn about the business model being used by FAMAE for the Army and other defense institutions,” Brigadier General Heine said. “[The Colombian military delegation’s visit] gave us a positive impression because we are considered to be a reference point for the Latin American defense industry,” Brigadier General Heine said. In its sights In mid-May, delegates from the Colombian National Army toured FAMAE’s facilities, a visit that was permitted because it was within the framework of the 1st Bilateral Meeting of Army Chiefs of Staff for Colombia and Chile, which was held in the Chilean capital of Santiago. last_img read more
