Central Engineering has been integral part in the design, development and future proofing of a number of canine concepts that have advanced the training of military working dogs. This partnership has helped increase the quality of canines used for detection purposes.

As a project manager for a major defence canine contract for Afghanistan it was Central Engineering that we (MoD) turned too to procure bespoke equipment that will help dog handlers in the field, undoubtedly to save lives.

Central Engineering have also been involved in many private sector enterprises and their innovative ideas, flexible approach and as important cost, make them the ideal choice for any canine project.
