Ordnance Factories are departmental factories of Ministry of Defence, Government of India. Hence, we primarily produce defence goods for the Armed Forces, i.e. for internal consumption within the MOD. However, we also produce products for sale to various customers within and outside India. Sale of civilian products within India is called civil trade.
We have a large number of customers in the civil sector-central/ state government departments, PSUs, private companies and individuals, etc.-who purchase industrial chemicals, explosives, arms and ammunition, brass ingots, aluminium alloy products for aircrafts, steel castings and forgings, vehicles, clothing and leather goods, cables and opto-electronic instruments.
