About Allied Defense Group Inc.
The Allied Defense Group, Inc., a multinational defense business, engages in the manufacture and sale of ammunition and ammunition related products for use by the U.S. and foreign governments. The company's business is conducted by its two wholly owned subsidiaries: MECAR S.A. (Mecar) and MECAR USA, Inc. (Mecar USA).
The company's operating segments include Mecar and Mecar USA.
Mecar designs, develops, manufactures and sells ammunition and ammunition related products for military use. The ammunition is used with weapons that are generally considered defensive weapons. Mecar provides system integration services pursuant to which it purchases and resells weapon systems, ammunition manufactured by others or consulting services to governments looking to develop their own manufacturing capabilities in types of ammunition not manufactured by Mecar. Mecars manufactured products consist of various ammunition and grenades in the medium caliber, artillery, anti-tank and anti-material categories. The principal products produced and sold by Mecar include direct fire ammunition; indirect fire ammunition; other ammunition; and grenades.
Direct Fire Ammunition
90mm Ammunition: Mecar develops and produces a family of 90mm ammunition that includes Armor Piercing Fin Stabilized Discarding Sabot (APFSDS), High Explosive (HE), High Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT), Smoke (SMK) and High Explosive Squash Head (HESH) rounds. This tank ammunition is for the COCKERILL Mk II and III, ENGESA EC-90, the DEFA F1 and the CN 90 F3 & F4 guns. The 90mm MKVIII KENERGA Weapon System has been jointly developed by Cockerill Mechanical Systems (CMI) and Mecar to provide the modern LAV with anti-tank punch similar to that of tanks equipped with 105mm guns, without sacrifice to the range, mobility and maintainability of the light LAV. The ammunition products include the APFSDS, HESH and SMK versions with their corresponding training rounds and these rounds have been safety certified by the U.S. Army.
105mm Ammunition: Mecar produces an entire range of 105mm tank ammunition. This range includes the APFSDS, HEAT, HESH, and SMK with their corresponding training rounds.
Indirect Fire Ammunition
Mortar Ammunition: The 120mm family is ammunition for standard field mortars and for the turreted mortar systems, such as the Patria NEMO and the BAE Land Systems AMS. The current version of this ammunition has successfully completed qualification with the U.S. Army, together with the 120mm AMS Light Armored Vehicle (LAV) system. This system is capable of direct, as well as indirect fire. Mecar has developed and qualified a direct fire fuse for the AMS.
The 25mm APFSDS-T ammunition round is Mecars entry into the medium caliber arena. This round and other 25mm rounds have been key components of the larger sales contracts. In addition, Mecar has produced 155mm HE, SMK(WP) and Illuminating rounds for various customers. Mecar manufactures HE, CAN, HESH and HESH-PRAC ammunition for the 76mm L23 guns, which are in service with armored vehicles in various countries in Europe, South America, Africa and the Far East. Mecar has developed and manufactured ammunition for the 106mm Recoilless Rifle. Mecar has also developed and manufactured the 84mm SAKR Recoilless Rifle and its associated family of ammunition. The SAKR ammunition (HEAT, HE, SMK, ILL and HEAT-TP-T) is also interoperable with existing 84mm systems.
Mecar manufactures two types of grenades: the M72 controlled fragmentation hand grenade and the universal bullet trap rifle grenade. Mecar manufactures different bullet trap grenades, including high explosive fragmentation, anti-personnel, armor piercing, smoke generating, white phosphorus, and parachute flare (night illuminating). A new dual-purpose rifle grenade with an electronic dual safety fuse has been developed for a European client. It is in its final stages of production.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
