About EOD Solutions

EOD Solutions Ltd was conceived as a company that would deal with Logistical disposal of ammunition currently held by countries who wished to dispose of surplus and obsolete stocks.

It also encompasses the storage and transportation of ammunition under consultancy agreements to aid those who wished to become part of the NATO Alliance and wish to bring their stocks within the NATO regulations where possible.

In more recent years EOD Solutions Ltd has become involved in large scale area clearance in the wake of depot or factory explosions where the immediate area is contaminated with unexploded ammunition. The area would then be cleared above and below ground to an agreed depth with the host nation.

Recently EOD Solutions Ltd has become part of the drawdown in Afghanistan where the company works closely with the UK Ministry of Defence and the military personnel on the ground to dispose of the small arms ammunition currently life expired or damaged. This is expected to last until the end of the drawdown in 2014.
