Towson firm wins detector contract

September 27, 1990

The current crisis in the Middle East and concern over Iraqi chemical weapons has prompted the U.S. Marine Corps to place a mult-million order for chemical detectors made by Environmental Technologies Inc. of Towson.

The value of the contract or the number of detectors ordered was not revealed for security reasons, a company spokesman said.

The contract calls for immediately delivery of the hand-held instruments, which weigh only a half pound and can detect a wide variety of chemical agents.

Environmental Technologies said it may hire additional workers to fulfill the order, but did not know how many.
