The increasing proliferation of firearms using very high-velocity ammunition has made the world less safe for the brave men and women who go out in harm’s way. Such weapons and rounds are cheaply and easily mass-produced everywhere.
Body armor producers have taken revolutionary steps to keep pace with firearms developments. This has led to the introduction of effective yet lightweight and comfortable body armor solutions.
HESCO has stepped up to the plate and has been instrumental in creating some of the most highly effective body armor solutions around. They have produced some of the most advanced armor plates for military applications, security, and police work alike.
