Dynamic Defense Materials, LLC Ranked #1 Fastest Growing Company in Greater Philadelphia Area

Marlton, NJ – October 25, 2012 - Dynamic Defense Materials, LLC (DDM) is proud to announce that it has been ranked #1 in the "Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies in the Greater Philadelphia Area". The ranking was revealed at an awards ceremony held at the Annenberg Center at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. The ceremony honored recipients of the Philadelphia 100 Award, which is given each year to the top one hundred fastest growing private companies in the Philadelphia Region. Robert Lipinski, CEO and President, John Yarsinsky, CFO and Joe Dimond, General Manager were in attendance at the ceremony.

DDM is the maker of the patented portable armored wall system, McCurdy’s Armor®, which can be used for guardposts, blast walls and any other application where protection is needed. It is a fully modular system that can be assembled in any configuration or protection level, in a matter of minutes by a few people, using no hand tools or heavy equipment.

McCurdy’s Armor® was named after a Marine Lance Corporal who served with DDM’s General Manager/Joe Dimond in Fallujah, Iraq. “Ryan McCurdy was killed by a sniper, while pulling a wounded Marine to safety at an entry control point they were manning. I’ve watched that event a million times and every time I do, I ask myself why this happened and why they needed to be exposed when we have windows that stop bullets. This product is something that I feel would’ve been the difference in whether Ryan made it home or not and while we can’t change the past, we certainly can work to make sure it doesn’t happen again and this is why we felt we should honor Ryan by naming our product after him. He was a hero!” said Dimond.

McCurdy’s Armor® is a 100% US Made product and not only is the US Military using it, but it is being exported into foreign markets where there are security concerns as well. The product is currently being used by the US Army, US Marine Corps, US Department of State, Mexican Federal Police and the Afghan Border Security. “Interest in other countries where security is an issue is increasing every day and foreign sales will further fuel our growth in 2013.” said John Yarsinsky, DDM’s CFO.  

“This honor is a great accomplishment, because it represents countless lives that have been and will be saved by McCurdy’s Armor®” Lipinski explains. “Our purpose at DDM is to protect service men and women and those in law enforcement. As we expand into many foreign markets, we look forward to protecting those that stand up for freedom”.
