For over 40 years, Point Blank has been the industry’s leading innovator of advanced products and designs engineered to maximize ballistic protection. The Company has shipped millions of body armor solutions to America’s service men and women, law enforcement professionals, corrections officers, Federal agents, and other key national and international customers. These guardians of society require the finest in protective gear combined with the confidence that comes from knowing that Point Blank has never failed to protect.
Since 1998, Point Blank has been the primary supplier of body armor solutions to the various Military and Government branches. The vast majority of American soldiers, who are serving or have served in Afghanistan and in Iraq, wore Point Blank’s flagship product, the Interceptor® Outer Tactical Vest (OTV). To provide our soldiers with greater protection against emerging threats like IEDs and snipers, the Company, in partnership with the U.S. Army and others, produced the Deltoid Axillary Protection System (DAPS) in 2004, Enhanced Side Ballistic Inserts (ESBI) in 2006 and other critical protective enhancements including the groin, throat and yoke collar.
In 2007, Point Blank was one of two suppliers to be awarded the much anticipated contract by the U.S. Army for next generation body armor—the Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV). This new design incorporated many of the features of its predecessor—the Interceptor® OTV. Spearheading IOTV production was another natural step in the progression of excellence and innovation that has characterized Point Blank’s successful heritage with the U.S. Armed Forces.
Further advancements have been made in concert with the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps, resulting in today’s Generation III IOTV, the Improved Modular Tactical Vest (IMTV) and other advanced plate carrier systems.
Today, with an unparalleled record of success and service to its customers, Point Blank Enterprises and its four subsidiaries (Point Blank Body Armor, PACA, Protective Products and PARACLETE) have earned a global reputation in the development and deployment of body armor. Point Blank’s values of integrity, teamwork and excellence are all focused on providing unmatched support and products to military, civilian, federal, and law enforcement professionals. More importantly, to those who wear Point Blank products while protecting society and our National Security, Point Blank means LIFE.
