    ARMOR EXPRESS AWARDED
    U.S. MARINE CORPSí BODY ARMOR CONTRACT


    Central Lake, MI - (For Immediate Release, Monday, August 24, 2009) – U.S.
    Marines will be wearing the latest in tactical body armor with ballistic
    panels manufactured by Armor Express.

    Receipt of an order of 50,000 sets of Full Spectrum Battle Equipment
    Ballistic Inserts (FSBE), was announced this week by Matt Davis, Armor
    Express president and CEO.

    The direct five-year contract is with the U.S. Department of Defense. It
    was processed by the U.S. Army’s RDECOM (Research, Development and
    Engineering Command) Contracting Center, Natick Contracting Division, and in
    support of the U.S. Marine Corps’ Systems Command.

    Work has already begun on producing the first phase of the order, some 9,000
    front and back ballistic panels, Davis noted. “Most of the work will be
    handled by our existing staff, but we have added nine additional employees.

    “Our company is proud to have been selected for this contract,” he remarked.
    “Marines are one of our first responders in hot spots around the world.
    It’s an honor for us to have been selected to provide life saving equipment
    like anti-ballistic body armor for them.”
