Codan Communications is a leading international designer and manufacturer of premium communications solutions. We deliver our capability worldwide for the military, defence, humanitarian, peacekeeping, commercial, security and public safety markets.

Founded in 1959 Codan has made a name for ourselves in quality and innovation. In 1980, our equipment was chosen by the United Nations to support their relief efforts in Uganda, cementing us as the leading global supplier of HF communications to humanitarian organisations.

Publicly floated in 2003, Codan acquired Minelab Electronics in 2008, developer of the world’s best handheld metal detection technology. This highly successful acquisition was followed by the additions of Minetec and Daniels Electronics to the Codan Group in 2012, cementing our world-class product offerings in Communications, Metal Detection and Tracking Solutions.  In 2018 we established Codan Defence Electronics to leverage the company’s expertise in RF engineering.
