Hesco achieves body armour certification
Hesco Armor has achieved ISO and BA certification for its hard ballistic resistant body armour, the company announced on 27 June.
Implementation of Hesco Armor's current Quality Management System began in 2015 and the certifications - ISO 9001:2008 and BA 9000:2012 - for design and manufacture of the body armour were accomplished in one year.
The company will now transition its Quality Management System to adhere to the requirements of ISO 9001:2015, the newest version of the standard, over the coming two years.
Stephanie Victory, CEO, Hesco Armor, said: ‘These certifications further fortify end-users' confidence in Hesco products. This achievement is significant to the entire Hesco Group, with sites in the US and UK all ISO approved, underlining the exceptional design and confirming that our entire portfolio range has consistently demonstrated that it meets the customers' needs and that we continue to engineer products that protect whenever and wherever they are needed.’
