USGNN Original StoryU.S. 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.
