ARMOR EXPRESS GAINS BRAND STRENGTH IN GROWING GOVERNMENTAL MARKET

February 22nd, 2012

Central Lake, MI, 2012 – CENTRAL LAKE, MI (February 2012) – Providing quality ballistic systems at a best value price to the U.S. government are among the issues that have made Armor Express the body armor of choice to a variety of agencies.

A recent preferred supplier, multi-year contract to the National Park Service underscores the Armor Express brand, notes Brian Buchanan, one of a network of company sales representatives. Though in Brian’s case, he has worked in-house at Armor Express, prior to going on the road from his Lexington, Kentucky base.

A veteran GSA manager (General Services Administration) with 15 years of experience, Brian credits the organization with developing tight body armor technical specs. “In recommending the best Armor Express vest model that will meet those specs, I like to meet with the various department’s technical representatives.”

As an example, a five-year contract awarded in 2010 produced multiple orders of AE’s popular Quantum III A model with an Equinox carrier and other value added features. That order was the result of a long line of comunication that ultimately ended in a series of meetings and fine tuning of the contact.

“Brian’s wealth of experience in working with government contracts gives us an invaluable perspective,” says Matt Davis, Armor Express President and CEO. “His success, along with the orders being logged by our solid network of sales reps, is all integral to the growing strength of our brand.”
