Vista Outdoor Ammunition brands—through its Australian distribution partner, NOIA—will supply police agencies “down under” with Federal, Speer and Force on Force duty and training ammunition. The contract, announced last week, was awarded by the Victoria Police in Australia and allows for other Australian Affiliated Policing Entities to procure ammunition under the same terms and conditions.
“We are extremely pleased with this prestigious contract award,” said Jason Vanderbrink, president of Federal Ammunition. According to Vanderbrink, “this award continues to validate the global trust our Federal, Speer and Force on Force products have when it comes to protecting the international law enforcement community.”
“The selection criteria included a mix of technical capability and price,” said David Leis, vice president of Vista of law enforcement, government and international sales. One of the differentiators is Federal’s exclusive Catalyst primer with lead-free technology and reliable, consistent ignition. Leis said, “with this contract award, Vista Outdoor ammunition brands and NIOA continue demonstrating surety of supply, professional capability, and the ability to meet all specifications while delivering value.”
Federal Ammunition also announced last week it has renewed its sponsorship of the Pass It On—Outdoor Mentors program, giving more children the opportunity to experience the great outdoors.
“As we expand our efforts to reach more youth through our Shooting Sports Outreach program, it is critical to our efforts that we get support from everyone in the outdoors to help make this happen,” said Mike Christensen, Pass It On—Outdoor Mentors president. “Having Federal Ammunition as the Official Ammunition of Pass It On—Outdoor Mentors greatly enhances our ability to get kids outdoors!”
“As we continue as an industry to promote youth shooting sports programs to build a strong future, mentoring programs like Pass It On—Outdoor Mentors are critical to our success,” said Jason Nash, Federal Ammunition’s vice president of marketing.
