CoorsTek Company DEW Acquires BLS Textiles, a Leader in Ballistic Door Panels

June 08 2015

Extends vehicle armor protection to law enforcement and security agencies

   

“We are proud to expand our armor capabilities into the law enforcement sector to help protect those who protect us. Now the combined capabilities of CoorsTek and DEW span the entire process of equipping police, security, and military vehicles with armor protection – from the design and manufacture of hard armor systems through turnkey vehicle integration.” Ian Marsh President of DEW Engineering & Development

Ottawa, ON, June, 8, 2015 CoorsTek announced today that it has acquired the assets of BLS Textiles, Inc. of Cambridge, Ontario and will integrate the production equipment, technology, and existing contracts into its subsidiary DEW Engineering & Development ULC (DEW). DEW is a well established leader in military vehicle armor upfitting, design, manufacturing, and integration. The acquisition extends DEW and CoorsTek vehicle armor solutions to protect officers across a range of police, security, and law enforcement agencies.

  

DEW becomes the only ballistic door panel manufacturer able to pass the stringent National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Level III and Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) standards for ballistic protection. Specific OEM solutions meeting these industry standards are available for factory and retrofit installation in several of the most popular police sedan and utility models in North America.

 

These ballistic door panels incorporate CoorsTek CeraShield™ ceramic armor into a custom insert that converts a vehicle door into a protective shield. “We are proud to expand our armor capabilities into the law enforcement sector to help protect those who protect us,” said Ian Marsh, President of DEW Engineering & Development. “Now the combined capabilities of CoorsTek and DEW span the entire process of equipping police, security, and military vehicles with armor protection – from the design and manufacture of hard armor systems through turnkey vehicle integration.”
