Crane Army streamlines manufacturing complex

From Local Sources

CRANE — Crane Army Ammunition Activity hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday for its Crane Flexible Manufacturing Complex, a newly renovated production facility, as part of the U.S. Army’s modernization effort to upgrade existing workspaces and increase efficiency.

The facility’s upgrades allow the entire manufacturing process for a munitions program to run continuously in a single location, improving production rates and better providing munitions readiness to the Warfighter.

The current focus at CFMC is the M1122 program, where shells from outdated conventional munitions are refurbished into low-cost training projectiles.

“Crane Army was the first stop in implementing change, and Crane continues to lead the way in this effort,” said John Campbell, Joint Munitions Command’s director of sustainment operations. “This complex is an excellent example that demonstrates how dedication, determination and proper planning can help create a more efficient process and structure.”
