3M PART­NERS WITH SCHUBERTH TO DE­VELOP NEXT-GEN­ER­A­TION HEL­MET TECH­NOL­OGY

SP's LandForces - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

3M Deutsch­land and hel­met man­u­fac­turer Schuberth are to de­velop im­proved bal­lis­tic head pro­tec­tion sys­tems for mil­i­tary and law en­force­ment ap­pli­ca­tions. The firms signed an agree­ment to cre­ate cus­tom head pro­tec­tion so­lu­tions for Euro­pean clients. Schuberth CEO Jan-Chris­tian Becker said that the deal marks an im­por­tant step in boost­ing its po­si­tion in the bal­lis­tic head pro­tec­tion sys­tems mar­ket seg­ment. Schuberth will also serve as a dis­trib­u­tor of 3M bal­lis­tic hel­mets, which will be man­u­fac­tured by 3M sub­sidiary Cer­a­dyne.

3M Ad­vanced Ce­ram­ics Plat­form De­fense Busi­ness Man­ager Ch­eryl Ingstad said: “Schuberth is a leader in mil­i­tary head pro­tec­tion and ac­ces­sories, with a deep un­der­stand­ing of cus­tomer re­quire­ments. The firms agreed to de­velop and mar­ket a new gen­er­a­tion of prod­ucts, which will pro­tect mil­i­tary and law en­force­ment per­son­nel from var­i­ous threats.”

3M Deutsch­land gov­ern­ment cus­tomers head David Cerny said: “Our police and mil­i­tary cus­tomers will ben­e­fit from this co­op­er­a­tion, as re­li­able tech­nolo­gies of both com­pa­nies are im­me­di­ately avail­able. Our goal is to of­fer lighter weight, ef­fec­tive pro­tec­tion in the face of grow­ing threats.”

Cer­a­dyne pro­duces light­weight body ar­mour and bal­lis­tic hel­mets, and is a ma­jor sup­plier for the US Armed Forces.
