Armstrong Tools announced that they were awarded a contract to provide standardized tool sets to the US Army and Marine Corps. See the press release here. One of the key components of the contract is that it is Berry Amendment friendly. The contract is for over 90,000 kits and is worth over a $100 M. The Berry Amendment regulates the procurement of certain specialty metals by the US Government. In this case it seems to relate to the production of forged tools. In recent times the major issue with this law is the limits it places on US aerospace manufacturers procurement of titanium. Most of the world’s supply now coming from one large Russian corporation.
