Disarmco is a commercial and humanitarian organisation providing products and services for the disposal of munitions and the de-militarisation and neutralisation of large stockpiles of conventional munitions and anti-personnel mines.
Disarmco offers non-explosive destruction methods for the disposal of ordnance ranging from small projectiles to air-delivered weapons, anti-personnel and anti-vehicle mines. These non-explosive products are classed as flammable solids.
Our services and products:
Ammunition Disposal Facility (“ADF”) – a truck portable system that uses a high degree of automation to dismantle large stockpiles of munitions – taking the solution to the problem. 3 patents filed on 3 unique processes.
Pyrotechnics – clearance of individual munitions, unexploded ordnance and minefields
X-ray backscatter – detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (“IEDs”)
Disarmco Holdings Limited is a UK company that enables implementing agencies to safely remove munitions (land mines, unexploded ordnance (UXO), Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) and stockpiles of ammunition and projectiles) making the environment safe and secure, without the need to use damaging explosives. A consequence of war is many millions of landmines laid in the ground and further millions of tons of surplus munitions stockpiled around the world.
These kill and maim and create a constant danger to the lives of innocent civilians. The stockpiles of old, out of date munitions are increasingly unstable and there have been increasing numbers of accidents where the stockpiles have exploded causing further casualties.
Disarmco’s aim is to become a leader in providing solutions for the Mine Action and Munitions Disposal sectors through the development of innovative, environmentally acceptable and cost competitive technologies. By offering an eco-friendly and cost effective range of products, consultancy and training services, we can enable and empower local communities to make their world a better and safer place.
Innovative Practical Toolkit
I have spent a considerable proportion of my time since serving in the Falklands and leaving the army, experiencing and witnessing the damage caused to my fellows by exploding munitions.
In my opinion Disarmco have innovated the first practical toolkit for the removal of individual munitions through to large stockpiles to minimise their disastrous effects.
I strongly support their endeavours.

MAT Kosovo’s EOD & ERW Training establishment and Disarmco are looking forward to their continued partnership over the coming year working closely together to further develop our products.
