Caracal Light Ammunitions (CLA) Ammunition Manufacturing for the Defence Industry

CLA

Caracal Light Ammunition (CLA), a Tawazun Holding subsidiary, produces a range of diversified calibers and ammunition types for both the military and sport sectors.

Established in 1994, CLA began as a facility with the capacity to produce three to five million rounds per year. CLA prides itself on supplying clients with quality, dependable ammunitions, which comply with the highest international standards.

Today, CLA operates large, exclusive ammunition production lines in its Abu Dhabi plant.

Military-grade, Nato-approved ammunition

In this medium-sized facility, the company develops military-grade ammunition, from 5.56mmx45mm ammunition to 9mmx19mm, for clients such as the UAE Armed Forces, police departments and shooting clubs.

In addition to its military use products, the commercial ammunition CLA produces for hunting and competition shooting is also gaining a growing reputation for its excellent quality in the global market.

To meet the growing demand for sporting ammunition, CLA has developed and exported various types of sporting ammunition such as the .223 Remington and the .308 Win Match.

Precision ammunition for the military

CLA ammunition is highly competitive in terms of product quality, price and delivery time. The company’s fully-integrated production system covers all steps in the manufacturing process, from sourcing of raw materials to producing the end product and after-sale services.

CLA is currently working on expanding its market share. Its research and development team is always on the lookout for ways to meet the precision-oriented requirements of clients, whether it is for military use or sporting purposes.

Diversified calibers and ammunition types

To fulfil its promise of offering quality products, CLA has implemented MIL STD-compliant procedures in its sampling, visual and technical inspection, quality, marking and packing specifications.

Over the past 17 years, CLA has used the highest quality materials, cutting-edge manufacturing technology and state-of-the-art equipment and devices to provide its international clients with exceptional standards of ammunition and customer service.

Each type of round is designed and constructed to meet Nato’s robust standards of technical specifications for reliability and safety.

Military-standard ammunition

Following its implementation of the Total Quality Management (TQM) system in its manufacturing facility, CLA has been awarded the internationally-revered ‘ISO 9001 – 2008’ certification. The certification was awarded in 1999, and it still holds it today.

In 2003, CLA was awarded the ‘Sheikh Khalifa Industry’ silver-level award. CLA is also expected to be awarded the OHSAS 18001: 2007 in October 2012.
