Creation of local manufacturing capabilities.

We supported Albanian ammunition depots to bring them in line with UN regulations. A comprehensive programme of work with one of the ammunition production factories employed 30 personnel on a project which was completed on time and within budget. The result was more than 3,000,000 kg of reverse engineered mortar ammunition.
