During the visit Major General Coghlan toured the company’s production facility and met with key staff to discuss Bisalloy’s armour grade product range and technical capabilities as well as how Bisalloy has engaged with the various stakeholders in both the LAND400 Phase 2 and LAND400 Phase 3 programs.
