KDH Defense Systems, a leading manufacturer of American-made, high-performance protective solutions, has got two separate delivery orders from the US Army worth approximately $40.0 million. These are new fair opportunity awards stemming from the contracts the company won in 2015. Production will be carried out at KDH’s manufacturing facility in Eden.
KDH received a $31.5 million delivery order from the Army Contracting Command to produce the Modular Scalable Vest (MSV) Generation II. KDH also received a delivery order valued at $9.0 million from the Army Contracting Command to produce the Blast Pelvic Protectors (BPPs). These are new fair opportunity awards stemming from the contracts the company initially won in 2015. All production will be performed at KDH’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Eden, NC, with an estimated completion date of June 2020.
Jim Henderson, chief executive officer of the holding company that owns both Armor Express and KDH Defense Systems stated, “We continue to receive large-scale orders from the US Armed Forces and various Federal agencies, which we believe are a testament to our manufacturing capabilities, technological skillsets and most important, our commitment to customers. We are also expanding our domestic and international law enforcement business, with the bulk of production being performed in our Central Lake facility. We’re investing in our business, enhancing our talent, and strengthening relationships with our supply chain and technology partners, which we believe will benefit our customers as we move into the 2nd half of the year and for years to come. It is our honour to serve our customers and deliver the solutions they need to ensure their safety.” (SV)
