Background

Over the last 20 years we have been the leading body armour supplier to UK and international government, law enforcement and military agencies. By the time the Iraq and Afghan wars began, we was at the forefront of the body armour industry. Supporting many government and civilian contractors travelling to these countries, the company quickly caught the attention of a number of other clientele and the company’s products enveloped the market.

The company rose to the challenge when the contract to supply the entire Afghan National Army and Police Force was awarded to VestGuard UK. Beating 600 other companies, VestGuard supplied all 160,000 units to Afghanistan without any delays or problems in a contract worth over USD $100Million. This is the largest contract of its kind to be won by a British company.
