Morgan Advanced Materials has received a £4.49 million contract from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to deliver hard body armour.

The body armour will be designed and manufactured to the MoD's requirements, and will utilise the company’s composite armour technology.

The agreement comes a year after Morgan won a £1.1million contract with the UK MoD to supply ballistic shields and supporting services.

Simon Pickin, president of Morgan’s composites and defence business, said: ‘Through a combination of extensive composite and ceramic materials knowledge, rigorous testing, and careful application, we are able to deliver ultra-lightweight body armour offering class leading levels of protection.

'From ballistic helmets, to rifle protected shields and personal armour plates, we are experiencing high demand for our range of ultralight personal armour from our global customer base. We continue to work with major defence and law enforcement organisations and are thrilled to further our products with the UK MoD.'
