DHB to supply Interceptor vests & components to naval personnel

Jul '06
Leader in the field of protective body armor DHB Industries Inc announced that Point Blank Body Armor, one of its operating subsidiaries, received a $9.2 million contract to supply the Naval Sea Systems Command with Interceptor vests and components. Production will begin this month at Point Blank Body Armor's Pompano Beach, FL facility, with delivery scheduled for August.

Sam White, President of Point Blank Body Armor, commented, "We are proud to continue to support the Armed Forces and remain committed to protecting our service men and women with technologically advanced body armor products."

The Interceptor Outer Tactical Vest is the lightest, most technologically advanced protective body armor system ever issued to the United States Armed Forces. The Interceptor OTV is an upgradable modular soft body armor system which provides ballistic and fragmentation protection. The system includes a base vest, yoke/collar and throat protector, upper arm and shoulder protection, and groin and lower back protectors.

In 1999, Point Blank Body Armor began supplying the US Military with the Interceptor OTV and has since delivered over 1 million vests. The Interceptor OTV and its ballistic components are credited with saving the lives of many of our service men and women.

DHB Industries Inc's Armor Group is in the protective body armor industry.

Its highly recognized subsidiaries, Point Blank Body Armor Inc and Protective Apparel Corporation of America (PACA)are focused on the design, manufacture, and distribution of bullet resistant and protective body armor for military, law enforcement, and corrections in the U.S. and worldwide.

NDL Products Inc produces and markets a comprehensive line of athletic supports and braces which are merchandised through national superstore chains as well as through private label distributors.
