Alliant Techsystems Inc. said Monday it has received orders totaling more than $266 million for small caliber ammunition under a contract with the U.S. Army.

The ammunition will be produced at the company's Lake City plant in Independence, Mo. Alliant has operated the facility since 2000.

Alliant and the army are nearing completion of a $276 million modernization project at Lake City that includes increasing the facility's production capacity.

Alliant is an aerospace, defense, and commercial products company with operations in 22 states, Puerto Rico, and internationally. It moved its headquarters last year from Eden Prairie to Arlington, Va. but still has significant operations in the Twin Cities.
