The original earth-filled defensive barriers
We are the original developers of the HESCO MIL Defensive Barrier. We engineer products that inspire confidence in military, security and environmental applications. We invest in solutions to reduce logistical burdens when faced with an emergency. We continue to develop new applications and innovations for protective systems, and we maintain integrity and innovation in everything we create.
HESCO barriers began with the need for one solution; to protect a family home that faced being destroyed by fierce storms. From this need, the innovative wire-mesh gabion system, with geotextile lining and rapid deployment features was created. This innovation became the HESCO Concertainer Unit, later acknowledged as the most significant development in field fortification since WWII.
Our extensive portfolio includes environmental and security barriers, border security, hostile vehicle mitigation solutions, and ballistic resistant armor plates.
We continue to innovate protective systems, whether an earth-filled barrier or protective body armor, we maintain integrity and innovation in everything we create, and we remember that our legacy began with the need to find the right rapid, reliable and robust solution to protect critical assets.
Our Technical Support Team have travelled to all corners of the world, providing onsite training in the field and the classroom. They are skilled, patient and, above all, experienced in all high security situations.
HESCO Engineers don’t just sit behind a computer screen. They get their hands dirty, building and testing and creating the right protection for you.
We have personnel stationed in Europe, the Middle East, United States and Asia, all on-hand to provide support wherever and whenever it is needed.Meet the Team
