Strengthening the cooperation with NSPA (NATO Support and Procurement Agency) established in 2019, VALPRO has signed a one-year cooperation agreement extension, thus becoming the only manufacturer and supplier of cans authorised to supply NATO military forces with military-grade products – metal fuel cans and their accessories.
VALPRO has been producing cans for the military segment since 2000, which has resulted in more than 1.5 million cans manufactured and delivered to both military forces of NATO member states and partner countries. The concluded cooperation agreement, which is now extended until the end of August 2024, is available on a special NATO e-procurement web platform that ensures an efficient and rapid response to the military needs of authorised users.
VALPRO is one of the oldest and largest metal processing companies in the Baltics, offering its products in more than 30 countries worldwide. This year is the company's 60th anniversary. Although the company's origins date back to 1944, when the Valmiera District industrial plant was established, where fire extinguishers and later also fuel cans were manufactured, 1 July 1963 is considered to be the founding date of the factory when the Valmiera Fire Extinguishing Device Plant (VUIeR), as it was then called, was established.
VALPRO produces not only 20 l cans, but also 2 l, 5 l and 10 l cans in various colours and specifications, fire extinguisher and other metal product cylinders, and performs gas cylinder inspections. More about the company's products and services here.
