TenCate Advanced Armor adheres to a unique business model. They do not sell direct to wholesalers, distributors, dealers, or the end user. Their products are only available through armor manufacturers, either private labeled, or under the TenCate Cratus™ brand.
TenCate Advanced Armor’s VP of Personal Protection, Mark Bajko, stated, “We define an armor manufacturer as a company whose primary business is devoted to the design and manufacturing of one or more of the three components of the body armor system: carrier; soft body armor insert; hard body armor plate. Our business model is acknowledgement that our plates are only a component of the armor system, and how the armor manufacturer integrates the three components into a system provides the maximum level of protection to the end user. The focus on plate carriers by the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Special Operations Command has triggered a growing demand by the global law enforcement and defense community for lightweight systems that provide protection against the full spectrum of rifle threats. Our hard body armor plate families feed into this growing demand by offering a breadth and depth of product line that is unmatched in the global body armor industry.”
