The Atlantis Defence Division, based in the Tygervalley area, has added substantially to its technical and project management staff in the past few months in order to complement the international contracts it has been awarded.
Atlantis has successfully registered several successful patents and expanded the operational envelope, while reducing the manufacturing costs and improving the production processes of several infantry weapon systems.
The company recently expanded its Programme Management offices for a third time in three years and purchased additional production capacity equipment.
Among the appointments is Terence Dumont, recently promoted to CEO. Dumont has over 25 years’ experience in the defence industry and headed a large manufacturing facility specialising in weapon and munition component production for 14 years. He joined Atlantis a year ago as a director, and his impeccable work ethic and professionalism has earned him this well-deserved promotion.
“We believe his technical expertise in production management is going to assist us fulfil our vision of delivering innovation excellence and achieving our expanded role as an ordnance manufacturing facility,” says Gordon Blackbeard, chairman of the Atlantis Group of Defence Companies.
