The competitively awarded contract has been shared between three armor manufactures to satisfy U.S. Army Security Assistance Command's (USASAC) Foreign Military Sales requirements, and USASAC's Special Defense Acquisition Fund's Foreign Military Sales inventory requirements.
The IDIQ contract called for a technically proficient plate, not before seen in previously available SAPI plates. Hesco Armor plates were chosen for their next generation composite material that creates an ultra-lightweight ballistic resistant insert.
Awarded days after the launch of the new Hesco Group brand identity, the contract is an additional testament of The Group's commitment towards innovation and their mission to protect people and assets, whenever and wherever needed.
Hesco Armor CEO Stephanie Victory commented; "We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this contract. This award further demonstrates that Hesco is a leader in innovation and personnel protection. Our body armor designs and performance are a leap forward in protection for National Security and Military Personnel."
