Hellenic Defense Systems S.A. (EAS) was established in 2004 by merging “Greek Powder & Cartridge Company SA” ( known as “PYRKAL”) and “Hellenic Arms Industry SA” (known as “EBO”).
EAS is a State owned company group active primarily in the defence sector (manufacturing and assembly of infantry weapons, anti-tank and missile systems, small and medium calibre ammunition, artillery ordnance), and secondarily in the civil sector (manufacturing of commercial explosives, hunting rifle ammunition, metal constructions and boilers).
The Company operates five (5) manufacturing facilities in Greece equipped with technically advanced machinery. It complies with the AQAP 2110 NATO quality standard.
Since its founding, EAS has entered into significant international co-operation agreements with major factors in the global defense industry, particularly in the R&D and manufacturing fields. Following long-term co-production activities under strict quality and compliance standards, EAS is now an acknowledged partner in the international defense industry.
