PRODUCING LIFE-SAVING BALLISTIC TECHNOLOGY

Driving innovation never stops and when you’re manufacturing products designed to save lives, the commitment to safety must be at the forefront…always. That is why we work so closely with our supply chain partners, ensuring we have access to the most advanced materials throughout the industry, and the know-how to develop packages that always exceed the required standards.

Thousands of U.S. Armed Forces members, domestic and Federal officers, and First Responders nationwide rely on our solutions to support their mission-critical requirements. Our customers must perform at the most optimal level, whether at home or abroad, and rest easy knowing their armor will perform as it was designed to. In Central Lake, we house our Ballistic Research Laboratory (BRL). It is here where we test thousands of rounds of ammunition and go above and beyond the standard NIJ threats with our own special threat protocol for both Level II and IIIA armor. We are constantly testing new materials which result in lighter packages, more flexible designs and increased protection for end-users. This knowledge is shared with our Eden team which also performs similar ballistic testing, whether for NIJ, FBI, or DEA protocols, in addition to all DoD ballistic requirements.

With new NIJ standards on the horizon (NIJ .06 to NIJ .07), collaboration within and throughout the industry has never been greater. We are well-positioned to drive innovation and bring to market new solutions unlike anything the industry has seen.
