Twenty-one officers and soldiers from 103 Field Squadron, 71 Engineer Regiment visited Pearson Engineering this week.
The visit was hosted by business development manager Nick Weller and programme director Brian Gallacher and was organised to provide a background into what equipment is manufactured at Pearson Engineering for the British Armed Forces.
The team from 103 Field Squadron received a ten minute presentation followed by a tour of the facilities where they were shown the production of Full-Width Mine Ploughs, Land Marking Systems, Mine Rollers, Combat Dozer Blades and MineWolf vehicles. Almost a third of the visitors had seen active service in Afghanistan where they had seen our equipment in use on operations.
Nick Weller said: “The visit achieved its aim and 103 Squadron left with a better understanding of what Pearson Engineering does and reciprocal visits were discussed for their live firing/explosive demo later in the year”.
