Production is Scaled Up
To mass produce high quality smoke grenades it’s essential to retain complete control over the manufacturing process. Moving the manufacturing of an entire product line to the other side of the planet is a tricky business, but it wasn’t long before the Enola Gaye factory in China was opened, complete with brand new equipment and EG’s very British ideas.
Joe, a Chinese native, joined the team and has meticulously managed the quality control in China ever since.
