ArmorSource Offers Government Officials a Direct Access to its Operational System after Winning $21M FMS Order

November 15, 2011

HEBRON, Ohio, November 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –

ArmorSource LLC of Hebron Ohio, a vendor of Advanced Combat Helmets
(ACH) and other advanced solutions to the U.S. Government and the sole
supplier of Ultra-lightweight ACH ballistic helmets to NATO, through its
procurement department of NAMSA at Europe, has decided to open its ERP
system to Government officials.

The decision to let Contracting officers and other Government Officials
a direct and secured channel to its operational system was taken after
ArmorSource has recently been secured some FMS orders for the supply of
approximately 260,000 Ballistic Helmets to the U.S. Government. These orders
are now followed-up and reviewed by the Government Officials directly by
entering into ArmorSource management and operational system.

Last May, shortly after its first win on the FMS project Congressman Bob
Gibbs announced

that ArmorSource, LLC of
Hebron, Ohio has been tapped to produce large number of Ground Troop
Parachutist’s Helmets (PASGT) on a Department of Defense Contract to supply
the U.S. Army Security Assistance Command (USASAC) with personal armor
systems for ground troop helmets. “Since opening its doors in 2009,
ArmorSource has created over 167 jobs and with this new contract, plans to
create at least another 50 jobs here in Ohio”, said Gibbs while visiting at

“The purpose of the new feature is to provide the most updated
information at the most transparent, but also secured way”, says Yoav Kapah,
ArmorSource President. “Our message to our customers is ‘get in the kitchen
and watch how your meal is cooked’. However the access to our system is
given currently only to U.S. Government authorized officials”.

According to ArmorSource system administrator the response of the users
to the new system met their earlier expectations in complete, and the system
is used on a daily basis by most users that have started to use their SSL
access and enter into the system as a routine sooner after they became

“ArmorSource is still a small business. Though, we try to lead the
market instead of being led by it, and we invite the government to
continuously and consistently watch our work”, adds Mr. Kapah. “The last
orders we received in the USA and abroad proves that ArmorSource is
effectively a leading vendor of advanced ballistic head protection solutions
not only in the U.S. but worldwide”.

ArmorSource LLC is a manufacturer of advanced ballistic helmets and head
protection systems located in Hebron, Ohio, USA. ArmorSource is an
internationally recognized developer of advanced and enhanced ballistic,
high velocity fragments and bullet-resistance helmets.
