The time is NOW: DND exhibiting at AUSA NOW 2020

A year 2020 without the AUSA Annual Meeting wouldn’t feel quite complete to us. Dynamit Nobel Defence has not only become a regular exhibitor at the largest annual land power exposition in North America, we have over the years also established ourselves as the host of the German National Pavilion. Thankfully, the Association of the United States Army has found a great way of keeping the event alive, with shifting it into the digital world! AUSA NOW will be held 13 – 16 October within an interactive 3D environment that provides virtual exhibitor’s booths, engaging webinars and speeches, as well as plenty of networking opportunities. DND is a Gold Sponsor of this show and we’ll be featuring our products and technologies on our virtual booth. Registration for AUSA NOW is free for professional attendees. Our team is looking forward to e-meet you next week!

Back to normal? Not quite yet!

Last week marked the return of “live and physical” defence exhibitions with MSPO 2020 being held at Kielce, Poland. Dynamit Nobel Defence was part of the event with a small-scale booth presence showcasing our range of shoulder-fired munitions. It has been a pleasure for our exhibition team to engage with customers, users, partners and friends again – outside of phone calls and video conferences. However, exhibit hall traffic and visitor attendance were still a lot less vibrant as it used to be before COVID-19. This is a reminder for us that the pandemic is far from over, but thanks to the event organizer and the MSPO & Logistics Team, the expo was conducted in a safe and very professional atmosphere. We hope to see you all very soon again!

vSOFIC: DND goes virtual

In the lights of the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic and almost all of the go-to defence exhibitions being cancelled, we welcome every opportunity to engage with our friends, partners and customers worldwide. We are happy to announce our attendance at the first-ever vSOFIC, the Virtual Special Forces Industry Conference that will be held 11 – 15 May 2020 as a replacement of the cancelled “normal” SOFIC 2020. Just as the physical edition, this event shall be the premier conference for the international SOF community and a forum for interaction between industry and SOF operators, decision makers and experts. We at Dynamit Nobel Defence are excited to be exhibiting and showcasing our products in the virtual space and are looking forward to meeting the SOF community in this all-new digital format! Visit us at vSOFIC!

COVID-19 Update: DND remains operational

The whole world is currently battling the spreading epidemic, and sadly, the fight is far from over. Society and economy will take time until life will be back to normal. We at Dynamit Nobel Defence are doing our small part: We are taking all possible measures to ensure health and safety of our employees, which is of utmost importance to us. Under these preconditions, we are remaining operational as a company across all departments and functions, including our ongoing production. Economic stability and job security for the DND family are our driving motivations. We also won’t forget our responsibility as a defence company to contribute to the national and international security landscape.

We are growing: Infrastructure project launched

DND’s production is running at full capacity due to a solid order backlog and a steady and healthy company growth. This March, we celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony for a new production complex within our premises at Würgendorf factory. Within the next two years, we will be constructing several buildings and facilities for explosives casting, mixing, tempering and drying. State-of-the-art manufacturing processes for our warhead production will be implemented in this all new facility.
This capability and capacity expansion are especially vital for the product line of RGW90 LRMP, the flagship line of the RGW90 series. The German Bundeswehr’s so-called “Effector 90mm” program will be in full effect in the upcoming years and will see to it that all infantry forces across all services will be equipped with this game changing asset. DND is laying the groundwork for this program right now!
