The A400M work will be produced at the ATK Aircraft Commercial Center of Excellence (ACCE) in Clearfield, Utah, USA.

The A400M work will use many of the same manufacturing processes already used within the ACCE facility.

The contract between ATK and Airbus Military includes 122 wing cover stringers per aircraft for 180 aircraft.

Airbus has already achieved sales for 174 A400M aircraft.
