We are one of the 41 Ordnance Factories under Ordnance Factory Board, Ministry of Defence, Government of India. On 19th July, 1984 the then Prime Minister Late Smt. Indira Gandhi laid the foundation to establish the factory for indigenous production of Infantry Combat Vehicles(ICVs) at Yeddumailaram in Sangareddy District of Telangana State. In a record time we have productionised one of the best Infantry Combat Vehicles in the world known as SARATH for the Indian Army. The first chariot of Medak rolled out of the portals of Ordnance Factory, Medak in the year 1987. In less than two decades, we have grown into a technical and management giant in a notified backward area covering a few un-known villages in the backward District of Sangareddy in Telangana.
The requirement of Army for Infantry Combat Vehicles has been totally met by Ordnance Factory Medak. In the changing scenario, we have gone for diversification and continuous technological upgradation. We are now producing Bullet Proof Vehicles and poised for production of hulls and turrets for Main Battle Tank(Arjun)and Armour Amphibious Dozar, Rocket Launchers(Pinaka) etc. The diversified product mix in special vehicles and Naval Products is the result of indigenous R & D efforts fortified by in-house CAD / CAM centre at Ordnance Factory, Medak. This has greatly reinforced the Security Forces and also improved the economy of our factory. We have successfully made forays in Civil Trade and Export Market as well. Our business share to the Ministry of Home Affairs and Other Defence Departments has steadily gone up.
