(“Armor Express”), a leading manufacturer and distributor of high-performance body armor solutions, announced today that the Company has been chosen to equip U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents with its cutting-edge ballistic-resistant vests. The multimillion dollar order will be delivered over a five-year period.

“Building on our previously announced awards from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), including for Customs and Border Protection as well as the Internal Revenue Service, the latest purchase order for Immigration and Customs Enforcement is another major opportunity for Armor Express to support the essential agencies within Homeland Security,” stated David Jones, Director of Federal Sales. “Federal agents at large face increasing demands and threats in preserving public safety, and protecting them is our #1 priority. The Armor Express team has worked closely with DHS to supply a variety of concealable and tactical ballistic systems and we’re honored to collaborate with ICE to ensure officers have the most innovative and reliable protective equipment to meet their mission-critical needs.”

Armor Express will support ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations and Enforcement and Removal Operations units with concealable and tactical outer garment carriers paired with its advanced Razor™ Level IIIA ballistic system, along with assorted pouches and carry bags. Personnel from the Federal Protective Service (FPS), formerly a department of ICE, will also benefit from a similar delivery order. Both ICE and FPS were looking for robust and flexible coverage to fulfill department requirements and after an extensive assessment, determined that Armor Express could best meet uniformed standards for ballistic performance, design and engineering specifications, and overall reliability.

Armor Express’ Razor™ ballistic system which is NIJ-, FBI- and DEA-certified, as well as special-threats tested utilizes the revolutionary Force Multiplier Technology from DSM Dyneema® and Twaron aramid from Teijin. Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology fuses breakthrough polymer science, next generation fiber technology, and unique uni-directional engineering to deliver V-50 performance that is unparalleled. Both the concealable and tactical vests with Razor™ armor offer extreme flexibility and stopping power.

With more than 20,000 employees in over 400 offices in the United States and 46 foreign countries, ICE is tasked with enforcing federal laws governing border control, customs, trade and immigration to promote homeland security and public safety. The agency is devoted to operational directorates including Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), a critical investigative arm of DHS which combats criminal organizations illegally exploiting the U.S.’ travel, trade, financial and immigration systems, as well as Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), which is tasked with arresting and removing aliens who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety, as well as those who enter the U.S. illegally or otherwise undermine the integrity of the nation’s immigration laws and its border control efforts.

FPS is the police division of the National Protection and Programs Directorate of DHS. The agency is charged with protecting and delivering integrated law enforcement and security services to facilities owned or leased by the General Services Administration (GSA), which spans over 9,000 buildings and their occupants.

In related news, Armor Express was also selected to outfit federal agents assigned to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). IRS officers will receive both concealable carriers and tactical outer garment carriers, each encompassing Razor™ Level IIIA ballistic panels, along with assorted pouches and carry bags.

Scott Wyatt, Vice President of Sales concluded, “These latest awards expand Armor Express’ core business within the U.S. Federal market and represent our continued leadership in developing and delivering breakthrough armor solutions for federal, as well as state and local enforcement agencies.
