From the WVPubcast Website:
May 19, 2011 · An Eastern Panhandle Company product is now on display at the United Nations in New York City because the company has been providing the U.N. with metal detectors to locate land mines in war torn countries.
The United Nations is recognizing Schonstedt Instrument Company in Jefferson County for its efforts in Humanitarian Demining.
Bob Ebberson, Director of Business Development, said the company matches every donation it receives for a magnetic detector.
Then, the United Nations and State Department assist the company in sending the locators to countries in need. U.N. Humanitarian workers use them to locate bombs in former war zones.
