This new site, the third the company operates in the US, is devoted to demilitarization activities and will be operational in December 2016.

From its Dallas (Texas) headquarters, EXPAL USA operates three sites in the U.S. A load, assemble, pack and pyrotechnics manufacturing facility in a 120-acre site in Marshall (Texas). Another manufacturing facility located in Camp Minden (the former Louisiana army ammunition plant), where EXPAL USA operates a continuous energetics pilot plant based on twin-screw extruder technology for the manufacture of energetic materials that cannot be mixed by conventional methods. And the remaining site located next to the Red River Army Depot in Hooks (Texas), dedicated to the demilitarization of ammunition including cluster ammunition; this facility will be operational in December 2016.
