WASHINGTON STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES CHOOSE ARMOR EXPRESS, CITE FIRM’S COMPETITIVE EDGE

January 19th, 2012

Central Lake, MI, 2012 – CENTRAL LAKE, MI (January, 2012) – Design, coverage and options were just some of the key requirements specified by several Washington state law enforcement agencies in recent body armor purchases.

Armor Express models evaluated by the Washington State Patrol and Seattle Police Department not only out-performed competitive vests in these categories, but the technical skill of the sales representative and their ability to understand and accommodate changes accounted for the award.

“This is a prime example of our representative, who has a wealth of law enforcement and body armor experience, being able to work with team leaders to fulfill the contract,” explained Matt Davis, Armor Expess President and C

EO. In the case of the state patrol, Matt said that both SWAT and IAD teams were very particular in their vest selection. “Our quality and customer service is what carried the day.”

Armor Express models chosen were the Wolverine with Halo and Quantum Level IIIA protection.

Seattle Police Department had a score of requests for concealable vests. Having both male and ‘fully structured’ female NIJ 06 certified vest designs with the choice of levels II or IIIA, carriers, various sized inserts and custom fitting were among the considerations.

Ultimately, Armor Express Quantum vest series were selected for a five-year contract with the first 500 vests to be delivered this year.

“Service, our custom designs, quality and options were all part of the winning bids,” noted Armor Express President and CEO Matt Davis. “Our recent success in Washington State is indicative of our growing recognition and brand strength.”
