Paraclete Closes St Pauls NC Plant

Last fall, MSA sold armor and individual equipment producer Paraclete to Protective Products Enterprises, Inc. PPE is owned by Sun Capital Partners, Inc.

Sun Capital also owns Point Blank Solutions Inc which consists of Point Blank Body Armor and PACA Body Armor and we understand that the Paraclete brand will be moved to Florida and incorporated into Point Blank.

Company spokesman Glenn Wiener said in a statement, “The decision to close our St Pauls facility was not an easy one. However, given the growth in our business and our multiple manufacturing facilities, we will be consolidating our manufacturing footprint to better service our global customers.”

With this closure, effective 1 May, 95 employees will lose their jobs.
