Denel SOC Ltd has learnt with shock of the tragic explosion that has resulted in a fire at Rheinmetall Denel Munitions (RDM) site in Somerset West, near Cape Town. Should the deaths that the media has reported on be confirmed, Denel SOC Ltd sends our deepest condolences to the families of anyone who has lost life in this incident. Denel SOC is a 49% strategic partner to Rheinmetall, a company of German origin. The two companies are run independently of each other with different boards and management structures.
