Kirintec is very proud to have hosted a table at the inaugural charity gala dinner attended by US Ambassador Mathew Barzun, supporting the Felix Fund and EOD Warrior Foundation.
The evening took place mid-way through SCTX 2016 this year. As an organisation we work hard with our customers to counter terror activity through our products and services.
Inevitably this sees us working directly with those who put their lives at risk on a daily basis for their respective countries.
We have former bomb disposal operators who work as part of our team, this really helps us to understand the threat to now help advance our customers response.
Therefore EOD communities are something we care deeply about.
When and where we can, we strive to give back. We do as much as possible to donate to charities that are close to our hearts and endeavour to make a difference – however small.
We have supported since our inception the wonderful work of the UK based charity the Felix Fund, but this is the first big opportunity to align with the EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF) based in the USA.
With this in mind, we would like to share some of the reason they exist with you.
The EOD Warrior Foundation like the Felix Fund provides financial assistance and support to active-duty and veteran wounded, injured or ill EOD personnel. Assisting with emergency financial relief, education, hope/wellness and EOD memorial care are all some of their support aims.The foundation believes that the EOD family is for life.
Those who know our beliefs, ethos and ethical stance will appreciate that this view is the same as ours. We purchased the star lot at the charity gala and once delivered, we will share pictures and the story behind its significance.
Meanwhile, if you couldn’t make the charity dinner and would like to find out more about the two charitable organisations please visit their respective websites:

(Incidentally chocolate does not last for long in our offices!)
