About the Company
Guardian Global Technologies (Guardian) is the world’s leading independent designer and manufacturer of advanced Ballistics Delivery Systems (BDS™) for the oil and gas industry. BDS is an integrated platform, which includes industry-leading release and cable head tension tools, gun brakes, shock absorbers, powered swivel joints, and Guardian’s select fire switch - everything from the cable head to the detonator interface.

Perforating guns can be deployed in a configuration optimised for operational requirements (individually or in combinations of up to 100 stages).
In addition, Guardian has an extensive product catalogue of production logging tools, used to measure within a wellbore variables such as pressure, temperature and flow, all of which are used in monitoring hydrocarbon production.
