Dynamic Defense Materials, LLC is awarded contracts to supply McCurdy's Armor to the US Army and US Marine Corps
Marlton, NJ – July 29, 2011 –Dynamic Defense Materials, LLC (DDM) today announced that it has just received follow on orders with both the US Army and US Marine Corps to supply its patent pending portable armored wall system, McCurdy's Armor.
Over the past ten months DDM has delivered 173 guardpost kits to the US Army in Afghanistan through an initial contract. If all options are exercised over the next four years, DDM will be sending an additional 1600 sets of McCurdy's Armor to Afghanistan where they will be used as guard posts for Entry Control Checkpoints (ECP's). Today's order is for 19 kits.
The Marine Corps has also used McCurdy's Armor in the past and today awarded DDM with an ID/IQ (Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity) contract to supply the trailer loaded, rapidly deployed kits for protection at ECP's and VCP's (Vehicle Checkpoints) where there is an ever present threat of sniper fire and suicide bombs. McCurdy's Armor is a fully fortified guard post that can be set up by three individuals using no hand tools or heavy equipment, in about ten minutes.
Our product is named after Ryan McCurdy, a Marine that I served with in Iraq and who was killed by sniper fire while standing post. I can't think of any better way to honor his memory and sacrifice than getting this product out to Marines just like him, doing the job he was doing and saving lives in his name. It is great to see our Armed Forces taking an interest in McCurdy's Armor and getting it fielded to the troops who are in harm's way. DDM is thankful that we are able to make a difference in the struggles around the world and we take this as further validation of our product's combat effectiveness", said Joe Dimond, DDM's Product Specialist and 10-year Marine vet. "The fact that both the Army and the Marines have used our product and are asking for more substantiates the effectiveness of McCurdy's Armor".
