DKL International Expands into Middle East

Reports Increased Japanese Orders for LifeGuard System


Vienna, VA. – DKL International, Inc., the world's leading supplier of passive human detection technology, announces Al Kashef Scientific & Laboratory Equipment L.L.C. as the first distributor of DKL’s LifeGuard in the Middle East. A company agent successfully completed the LifeGuard training course, and the first units have been delivered to their headquarters in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Hakim Chebaa, the managing director of Al Kashef, has already received several inquiries from his sales territory, which includes Arabian Gulf countries, Morocco, and Algeria. Al Kashef is now certified to instruct operators in the use of the LifeGuard system. The company will maintain an inventory to provide faster delivery and customer service.

An increasing number of emergency organizations in Japan are also placing orders for the DKL LifeGuard. These orders are being driven by the need to find survivors in collapsed housing, avalanches, and other life-threatening situations.

DKL International continues to build a worldwide dealer and distributor network to supply the military, security and fire/rescue organizations for which LifeGuard was developed. DKL employees are working to deliver back orders that now number in the hundreds.
