Bullet proof vehicles for Mexican Civilians

Texas Armoring Corporation : 19 February, 2009  (Application Story)
In an effort to protect themselves from drug violence, many high profile Mexican citizens have turned to Texas Armoring to provide reinforced vehicles for protection against gunfire and explosives
Bullet proof vehicles for Mexican Civilians
Texas Armoring Corporation (TAC) is working closely with high-profile Mexican nationals and affiliates of the government to help stop drug violence and protect Mexican civilians.

TAC, which is internationally renowned for turning stock vehicles into rolling fortresses capable of defeating hand grenades, high-power rifle fire, and even some IEDs, announced that it has multiple bulletproof units in production for Mexican clients. The company is also in talks with key individuals to provide armored SWAT trucks for the National Mexican Police Force in an effort to fight drug cartels and help take back key areas of the country's war-torn landscape.

President and CEO Trent Kimball commented, "The drug-related violence in Mexico has adversely affected the lives of countless Mexican and American citizens. Last week, FOX News said that 'more than 6,000 people died in drug-related violence last year.' Our goal is to help lower that number in 2009. We've produced literally hundreds of armored vehicles for Mexico over the years, including the Popemobile, but the current necessity for armored passenger cars has never been greater. Clients in Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Juárez, Nuevo Laredo, and Tijuana have contacted us regarding rush delivery orders, and we've ramped up capacity to meet their demand. Additionally, as drug lords have become more organized in their tactics, our armoring methods have become more advanced. Our vehicles are lighter, stronger, and more low profile than nearly all armored cars produced in Mexico, and we have seen many clients coming north to Texas because of quality concerns. TAC vehicles are completely indistinguishable from factory units, and we're building many vehicles that can even stop armor-piercing rifle rounds."

Kimball continued, "In addition to passenger vehicles, we're now offering custom new SWAT units that will help Mexican Police and anti-drug units to fight cartels on the front lines. Our SWAT units are designed for use in dangerous tactical situations to provide officers and soldiers with a way to fight back and travel safely in hazardous territories."

Texas Armoring also announced that daily tours of the facility will be held throughout the next few weeks for members of the press and Mexican clients that need more information.
