“We defused a time bomb at the last possible moment,” said Defence Minister Martin Glváč, as quoted by SITA, adding that the winning firm will create 140 new jobs.

Glváč also said the winning bid was three times better than the second highest.

VOP, which is owned by the Defence Ministry, dismantles old ammunition, manufactures munitions and prolongs the lifespan of ammunition. In addition, the company also has some civilian production. However, it has suffered from the economic crisis and recent cuts to the defence budget.
