Bullet resistant vehicles

Common Myths

Armored civilian vehicles are for criminals and spies.

There is a stigma attached to the ballistic protected vehicle that they are owned and used only by high-ranking figures of organised crime, spies and leaders of countries or other government officials. This is simply not the case in today's modern world - in fact, the sale of armored vehicles has seen a dramatic shift in recent years and now consists of three key market segments:

1. Personal protective.

This segment is comprised mainly of high-ranking executives, as well as corporate employees working in dangerous locations in industries such as mining, oil and gas development and international finance. This segment also accounts for affluent families living in areas in which kidnappings and/or other violent attacks are prevalent, and has risen to become the most substantial market segment due to globalisation efforts by business into areas of developing security such as the Middle East, South America and Eastern Europe. Isotrex Manufacturing works closely with each client to ensure that they receive the armored vehicle that they prefer, as well as any additional accessories which may add to the vehicles performance, comfort or protective capabilities. We are fully experienced in this market and are capable of outfitting your personal and/or corporate armored vehicle with the options of your choosing to maximize both your value for dollar, and satisfaction as a user of our products.

2. Governments.

An obvious client base, this segment provides a long-standing market for the armored vehicle industry as many Governments seek to maintain the security of diplomats, embassy staff and various agency operatives worldwide using covert armored vehicles. Isotrex Manufacturing has a long history of providing vehicles which have been custom designed to meet the specific operational needs of such agencies and continues to work with our clients to ensure maximum efficiency and operational performance in this sector.

3. NGOs and Private Security.

Finally, there is the Non Government Organisation (such as the United Nations and other aid agencies) and private security industry portion of the market, which is one of the largest purchasers of armored vehicles on a global basis. Private security can range from a small independent protection detail (bodyguard agency) to the Multi-national private security forces with government contracts to support military operations on foreign soil. The possibilities in this sector are endless. Isotrex Manufacturing has always been supportive of the men and women who lay their lives on the line to protect others and make the world a better place through peacekeeping, and we continue to serve each of our NGO and private security clients to the absolute best of our ability, providing them with quality protection to ensure they live to return to their loved ones after fighting to make others lives better.

As you can see, the use of the armored protective vehicle is far more widespread than most realize. Our armored vehicles are not designed as combat vehicles, or to be used for aggressive purposes, they are simply a safeguard against those who would do harm to their occupants. Our vehicles retain an almost original exterior appearance and therefore do not increase the risk of assault in any way but offer superior protection when required nevertheless.

Personal protective vehicles are becoming more and more commonplace, and necessary, in today's world: perhaps it is time you spoke with us to determine whether a personal protective vehicle might be right for your security needs.
