MINNEAPOLIS, July 14 (UPI) -- Minnesota-based munitions manufacturer Alliant Techsystems announced the establishment of an international office to address expanding operations.
ATK announced its new international operations office has been established in a move by the company to further expand into the international market and meet the evolving demands associated with a growing international presence.
Officials named ATK's current vice president and general manager of its Advanced Weapons division, Dave Wise, to head the new international operations office.
"The international demand for ATK's portfolio of products across all three business groups is strong and growing stronger," John Shroyer, ATK chief financial officer, said in a statement.
"Today, international sales account for approximately 10 percent of the company's revenues. Dave will coordinate our international outreach across the corporation, optimizing our capture initiatives and strategically expanding the company's operations into significant new international business, while driving our percentage of international sales higher."
