HighCom Global Security, Inc. (OTC: HCGS), a global leader in blast effects mitigation solutions, manufactures and distributes protective products for the defense industry and law enforcement sectors worldwide. The company operates under two segments, BlastGard Technologies Inc. and Highcom Armor Solutions, Inc., with both providing mission critical products designed and tested to save lives. The company is dedicated to serving this highly specialized field of customers with the most cost effective, quality protective products that meet all standards set by federal, state and local agencies.
A research report by MarketsandMarkets suggests that the public safety and security market will grow from around $247 billion in 2016 to more than $456 billion by 2021 at an estimated compound annual growth rate of 13 percent (http://nnw.fm/E1nyf). Governments around the globe are searching for ways to protect citizens in the wake of increasing threats to public safety, fueling the demand for safety and security solutions.
For the past decade, HighCom Global Security has been able to offer multiple solutions targeting these rapidly evolving markets within the defense and security industries. The company’s BlastWrap™ proprietary material is proven to effectively mitigate blasts and suppress fires resulting from explosions of any size and kind. Importantly, this unique technology is able to dissipate blast energy, which reduces the aftermath of acoustic and shock waves, peak overpressure, reflected peak overpressure, impulse and afterburn. Industry applications for BlastWrap™ products are many since it works indoors or out, in vented or unvented environments, wet or dry, clean or dirty, damaged or intact areas, and against strong or weak blasts from solid explosive or flammable fluids.
In addition, HighCom designs, develops, tests, manufactures, and distributes body armor and personal protective equipment including more than two dozen NIJ compliant hard and soft armor products. The United States military is consistently seeking ways to improve the protection of its soldiers and is expected to roll out a new, lighter body armor system by 2019. Reducing the weight of body armor while meeting future threats is top priority, according to a Government Accountability Office report issued in May to Congress (http://nnw.fm/KzX52).
HighCom’s reputation for innovative technology, exceptional customer service and superior quality performance is being demonstrated around the globe as it continues to supply a host of products essential to protecting lives.
