Armor Holdings, Inc. Receives $112 M Award for Improved Outer Tactical Vest
Armor Holdings, a leading manufacturer and distributor of military vehicles, vehicle armor systems and life safety and survivability systems serving military, law enforcement, homeland security and commercial markets, announced the receipt of a new contract award for $112 million to provide the Improved Outer Tactical Vest to the U.S. Army.
The Company stated that this new generation of vest was selected by the Army from competing designs and will become the standard for the integrated body armor ensemble. Work will be performed in 2007 and 2008 by the Armor Holdings Aerospace and Defense Group at its facilities located in Tennessee and Pennsylvania.
The Company responded to the U.S. Army's effort to field test an ensemble that provides greater user comfort, more sizes and greater range of adjustment, enhanced ballistic coverage area, reduced weight, and an emergency quick-release system. Most significantly, this contract enables Armor Holdings to begin immediately to field vests required to outfit US Soldiers deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Armor Holdings expects to participate in replacing all current systems in use today.
