Hotzone Solutions welcomes director of new U.S. office, attends exhibition conference

Hotzone Solutions said on Thursday it will open a new office in the United States, and welcomed Carl Jorgensen, who has extensive experience in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear explosives defense, as its new director.

Jorgensen has 30 years of experience as former staff member of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the Science Applications International Corporation. His expertise in the CBRNE field will help Hotzone meet North America's needs more effectively.

While in the U.S. to open a new office in St. George, Utah, Hotzone Solutions CEO Olivier Mattmann and Taiana Heux, an executive assistant at Hotzone, attended the 6th annual CBRNE Convergence Congress and Exhibition on Oct. 29 through Oct. 31 in San Diego, Calif.

During the conference, Hotzone Solutions presented a new generation of chemical warfare simulants and its International CBRNA master courses. Attendees were particularly interested in the potential of the new courses when used by first responder communities for training against chemical warfare agents, such as mustard gas, sarin and VX.

Hotzone Solutions is a worldwide company that provides training and consulting for CBRNE defense. Its staff consists of former employees from the OPCW, the United Nations Special Commission and the United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission.
