HighCom Global Security, Inc. (OTC: HCGS), a leader in blast effects mitigation solutions, has introduced several new products in 2017, while continuing to uphold its ISO 9001:2008-certified Quality Management System. This system has been in place since 2005 and was certified the following year. It helps assure approval of all products by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Highcom works to meet the basic requirements and continually make improvements. Its plates, helmets, shields, and other types of Armor; bullet proof vests; ballistic blankets; and other offerings also adhere to the armor quality standards of BA 9000 certification, established by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ).
The company serves law enforcement, military and government customers, as well as those in the commercial sector. It can offer fire suppression for naval vessels and merchant ships. Products are also available to help protect buildings against vehicle-delivered bombs. In addition, the company supplies a line of rifle armor, civilian armor systems, vest attachments, and bags and pouches.
Just this year, several new products were introduced, including a lightweight and high-performance soft armor panel (the Level IIIa elite) and multi-curve, hard armor ballistic plate (the Level III++). Four new hard armor products were added in February, which have been recognized by the NIJ’s Compliance Testing Program. In terms of body armor, it is the only standard that has been nationally accepted. HighCom’s total of 11 hard armor and five soft armor solutions are certified to the institute’s high quality standards.
Since its founding in February 1997, the company has served a large and diverse market. Over about a decade, it distributed nearly one million pieces of ballistic armor via Department of Defense contracts, and it has capacity to output more than 20,000 pieces of armor each month. This high level of performance doesn’t seem to be slowing down. In a recent news release (http://dtn.fm/Xn5iD), HighCom Global Security reported a year-over-year increase of 116 percent for Q2 revenues. The company reported revenue of $1.5 million for the quarter, and $2.6 million for the first half of the year, which marked a 37.5 percent increase over the first half of 2016.
Its continued success is in part due to an ability to serve the global defense market and adhere to leading standards, but HighCom’s own technical development strategy also plays a role. A ballistic testing laboratory at the company’s Columbus, Ohio R&D center and manufacturing plant is where soft body armor, shields, tactical armor systems, helmets, and other products are developed and quality controlled. Here, testing guarantees 100 percent effectiveness, according to the company, and includes the same tests conducted at NIJ-approved ballistic labs worldwide.
