Argon teams with OWR for its CBRN related training in Germany

Argon Electronics, a leader in CBRN and HazMat simulation and training aids, announced on Thursday that it has appointed OWR GmbH, a technology and systems provider, as a sales and distribution channel in Germany.

Under the deal, OWR will represent Argon in Germany and develop customer specific solutions for CBRN related response training. The deal will make it easier for local customers in Germany to access Argon's CBRN simulators.

"For more than 50 years, OWR has been working to support ground-breaking defense and civil protection concepts within Germany, NATO partner countries and beyond," Argon's Managing Director Steven Pike said. "As well as scientists and engineers, OWR also employs - and is advised by - former officers of the German Army that have specialized in CBRN response. Our like-minded companies mesh together perfectly, offering both the military and first responder agencies the chance to realistically and proficiently prepare for CBRN incidents."

The new partnership will help to combine the two companies knowledge and make them a leading company in Germany in the field of CBRN related training.

"Representing Argon Electronics makes perfect sense for OWR," Graham Barnicoat, the international sales manager of OWR, said. "The combined expertise of Argon and OWR makes a powerful package and we look forward to bringing all of Argon's innovative products to the German market."
