"95 percent of the ammunition is produced for the UAE GHQ, and rest for others in the region," he said, adding, "We produce 14 new products, and they vary from small and medium to large size. These products are 100 percent made in UAE, we are just importing the raw material from outside."

Sara Al Shorouqi, Executive Director, Group Communications, Emirates Defence Industries Company, who was also present during the press conference, said that there were 16 subsidiary companies under the umbrella of EDIC. "And now we have 14 companies after the merger of Burkan Munitions Systems and Caracal Light Ammunition into Barij Munitions."

Barij has many services on offer, such as de-militarisation, to safely dispose of munitions facilities, dismantling ammunition, cutting projectiles, removal of explosives from projectiles and disposal of both rocket motors and smoke ammunitions. The company also offers screening services and testing by which to examine different types of ammunition and materials, such as mortars, artillery shells, grenades and smoke generators.
