Point Blank Solutions Wins Columbus, Ohio Fire Department Contract
POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ — Point Blank Solutions, Inc. (Pink Sheets: PBSOQ), a leader in the field of protective body armor solutions, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, PACA Body Armor (“PACA”) has been awarded a contract with the City of Columbus, Ohio, Division of Fire valued at approximately $250,000.
The competitive solicitation was based on PACA’s NATO style tactical carrier design constructed of abrasion resistant, Cordura outer shell materials with both front and rear stab resistant devices, dual-sized combo plate pockets and two, 10×12 blade plates. This highly customized, center-opening tactical armor system is ideally suited for First Responders who require immediate protection in high threat circumstances. Ruggedly durable and designed to be highly adaptive under any condition, this high performance vest offers exceptional protective coverage while allowing maximum freedom of movement. Easy to donn and doff and incredibly modular in construction, this specialized vest provides the perfect combination of form, fit and function.
Under the terms of the award, PACA will provide 325 vests, under its G3ACO Level IIIA ballistic package which is tested in accordance with NIJ 0101.04 /05 Interim requirements as well as military standards for V50 ballistics. The Company expects to complete this order within 30 days.
Michael Foreman, SVP, Sales and Marketing stated, “There continues to be a growing need for ballistic systems for not only law enforcement personnel, but all first responders. Firefighters and emergency service personnel in particular, constantly risk their lives on a daily basis and often face threats similar to law officers and federal agents, yet lack the body armor systems needed to ensure safety. Some agencies have taken steps in recent years to equip all first responders but there are still thousands who do not have the appropriate mission critical gear. Our Company has the capability and willingness to build products that meet the needs of all public safety personnel and we applaud the Columbus Ohio Division of Fire for their efforts and hope other agencies will follow suit.”
