Bulletproofing Makes Its Move
U.S. Bulletproofing has announced that it is in the process of
moving from its location in Hyattsville, Md., to a new facility
in Upper Marlboro, Md.
"Our production is actually up and running in the [new] facility,"
says Ken Sampson, president. "Our offices are not complete;
they're about two weeks out."
The new facility is nearly four times larger than the previous
one, according to Sampson, and will provide the company with the
space it needed to become completely automated.
"Now when we do a quote, [the machine center] actually writes
all the cut list, it does all the drawings automatically, it does
all the machining necessary
we're completely automated from
the quoting all the way to production, so we needed some space to
do that." Sampson adds that the company now has "one of
the largest machine centers in the U.S."
Sampson expects that the new space will allow the company to begin
work on larger projects; it will also provide room for a new product
line. The patent is pending on the company's new door retainage
system for blast applications.
