Armor Express


Founded in 2005, Armor Express has grown to become one of the leading designers, manufacturers, and suppliers of life-saving, protective solutions. The Company began by serving the Domestic Law Enforcement market and following the merger with KDH Defense Systems in 2019, now proudly supports the U.S. Military and Department of Defense, Federal and Domestic Law Enforcement, and First Responders both domestically and abroad.

Our passion for producing the most innovative armor systems is made possible by the commitment of every Armor Express employee, many of whom have spent their lives serving our country. Through our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Eden, NC, and Central Lake, MI, we manufacture both soft and hard armor solutions for America’s protectors. In Michigan, we house our Ballistics Research Laboratory (BRL), where we test the most advanced ballistic materials, developing solutions that meet NIJ, DEA, and FBI protocols, and various special threats for any mission-critical requirement. We are committed to safety first and foremost and collaborate with our partners to bring to market, lightweight, high-performance ballistic solutions, along with a full suite of concealable, overt, and tactical carriers. We also manufacture and source a full line of innovative hard armor plates, helmets, and shields, all designed to meet the most stringent safety standards and to bring our protectors to home safe.

Our culture at Armor Express is built upon six core values. These tenets craft our products, guide our decisions and demand continuous improvement in everything we do.

  • Customer Focused – We will always place our customers’ needs above our own. 
  • Safety is our Priority – We will always ensure that every product we source or produce has the highest quality and safety controls – we are saving lives. 
  • Innovation Never Stops – We will always look to innovate in everything we do to benefit our customers and our Company. 
  • Integrity and Respect – We will always make ethical decisions, be transparent with our customers and colleagues and treat each other with dignity and respect. 
  • Collaboration and Teamwork – We will always collaborate with all stakeholders in mind to ensure successful outcomes. 
  • Accountability is a Must – We will always hold ourselves and our colleagues accountable for actions and results, with a goal of exceeding commitments and deadlines.
