Barum and Dewar develops packaging for refuel kit

Barum and Dewar, a manufacturer of protective packaging, transit container and handling solutions, is working as a subcontractor to engineering and construction company KBR as part of a Ministry of Defence contract to ensure the latest aircraft refuelling kit and equipment needed in Afghanistan reaches the troops protected and ready for action.

The company was tasked to come up with a protective packaging solution for the newly developed Joint Operational Fuel Systems Project (JOFS) and Light Forces Kits, which enable the equipment to be dropped by air behind enemy lines, ready for small teams to assemble in readiness for ground forces to move forward by land and refuel.
