Leading high-tech armour processing specialist Advanced Armour Engineering (Stand FT-003) has opened a new factory in the UAE.

The company has invested more than $3 million in the largest armour processing machines currently available in the Middle East. With more than 15 years’ experience within the military and security sector, the British-owned and -managed specialist has employed highly qualified technicians and engineers who are fully conversant with all aspects of armoured grade materials, in both blast and ballistic applications.

According to general manager Simon Hurst: “It’s our intention to bring European manufacturing techniques and expertise to the Middle East market, and we will also have a heavy focus on export markets.

The UAE is a fantastic gateway to allow us to do this.”
