What we do best

ODL is always looking to implement techniques and/or product attributes that enhance customer satisfaction while maintaining a competitive edge and providing a cost effective solution. One feature of our training ammunition that ODL adopted early was colour differentiation of our training ammunition. This assists in detection of ball and blank contamination.

An in-house laboratory and sophisticated test range for ballistics and weapon function are part of the tool-kit that we use to audit quality and test product enhancements. Coupled up with experience from the team, ideas are brimming for continuous improvement and practical innovation.

Exacting methodologies are in place by the team at ODL and we understand what is required to get a product to perform within demanding tolerances and as specified by the customer.
