Max develops and maintains ANTS business opportunities and has initiated a number of ‘start-ups’ which have sought to introduce new technologies into what were often very conservative industries such as Oil & Gas development and Defence. From the early ‘90s, Max was responsible for establishing a market for South African Defence products within the UK MOD, inc explosive detection, mine clearance technologies and in particular, introducing the first Mine Protected Vehicles (MPVs) into British Army service for Bosnia. In the last two years this has resulted in the sale of further MPVs to the UK MOD, with a value in excess of £400million, which can cope with the increasingly large and sophisticated IEDs found in Iraq and Afghanistan.
