WISCONSIN STATE PATROL SELECTS ARMOR EXPRESS QUANTUM MODEL FOR OFFICER SAFETY

December 11th, 2011

Central Lake, MI, 2011 – CENTRAL LAKE, MI (December, 2011) – Since 1939 the Wisconsin State Patrol (WSP) has ensured highway safety by providing professional and dedicated law enforcement services to users of state highways.

Effective 2011, members will be wearing soft body armor manufactured by Armor Express.

Personal body armor standards were high when the department issuesd an RFQ earlier this year for the contract ultimately won by Armor Express.

“The department even did their own testing of vests,” noted AE sales representative Buzz Wilmot, a former fireman with 29-years of experience in the industry. “They were very thorough in their search and testing, no doubt in part because of mistakes and untimely deliveries by a former vest provider. The test results and our customer service department were key factors in winning this contract.”

AE’s Quantum, threat level II, was the model eventually selected.

“The fact the Quantum was available in both male and female configurations no doubt inflenced the State Patrol’s decision,” pointed out Matt Davs, Armor Express President and CEO. “They also liked the vest’s performance level.”

Other factors no doubt included the light weight of the Quantum, and its flexibility and robustness, cited matt. Quantum armor comes standard with an Equinox carrier and 5”x8” Soft Trauma Pack.

The vests are slated for some rigorous duty since the WSP is charged with enforcing traffic and criminal laws; helping motorists in need; truck inspection, school buses and ambulances; and helping law enforcement agencies with natural disasters of civil disturbances.

“Whatever the situation, we’re confident in the performance of the Quantum model,” said Matt.
