BUILT ON PURPOSE: PARTNERING WITH THE HALO TRUST TO DEVELOP THE GRENADIER
The HALO Trust is the world’s largest landmine clearance charity, tackling some of the most inhospitable places on the planet.
Set up in 1988 by two former British soldiers, they have operations in over 25 countries, employing 9,000 local deminers across the globe. To do their work, they need a 4X4 fleet that is tough, reliable and fit for purpose.
The HALO Trust in Kosovo
One of our 2B prototypes has been helping The Halo Trust get to work clearing landmines in Kosovo. It’s not your average commute. The charity’s work often starts where the road ends. Seeing how the Grenadier handles Kosovo’s rocky, muddy, rutted tracks and the snow and rain, is helping us give The Halo Trust the rugged 4X4 they need.
The HALO Trust in Angola
INEOS Automotive first worked with The HALO Trust in 2020, spending time in Angola on an active operation to experience the tough working conditions their 4X4 fleet undergo. Seeing first-hand how the charity’s vehicles negotiate pitted and sometimes undrivable roads, often making repairs in the field with only basic tools, has helped shape the ongoing development of the Grenadier.
