Our mission is the safety and protection of people and assets any time, any place. We design, engineer and manufacture innovative products that provide users with the confidence they need to do their jobs in the most hazardous environments around the world.
We work together with only the most advanced, reliable material suppliers to push the limits of ballistic possibilities.
Our product development is driven by real world, on-the-ground feedback from our global customer base. Material innovations help to bridge the gap between operational requirements and scientific reality. Every step in our design process is critical to enhancing the success and performance of those that carry our plates.
HESCO products have been protecting brave servicemen and women in the military for more than 20 years, and with our cutting edge ballistic inserts we bring that protection and confidence to the heroes of law enforcement.
Everything we do, from next gen technology to the highest quality production standards, is focused toward ensuring that law enforcement and military personnel return home safely.

DEFINE THE APPROPRIATE THREAT PROFILE
Select armor that protects against credible threats without excessively weighing down the operator:
> Understand the local and regional firearms uses
> Consider the potential threat of stolen ammunition
> Be aware of sport shooting and hunting in your area
> Know what firearms are used by your workforce
> Be prepared for the environments
HESCO BALLISTIC INSERTS are manufactured to the highest quality standards at our state of the art facility in Aberdeen, Washington, USA.
We specialize in the research, engineering, design, production and fulfillment of body armor solutions, using only the finest materials available, so you can rely on the performance you expect when it counts most.
HESCO BODY ARMOR is available in a number of shapes and sizes as well as various curvatures, weights and thicknesses. A properly fitted torso plate should not interfere with the comfortable movement of the arms and shoulders. If a plate is too large, it can impede mobility and result in difficulty holding, aiming or discharging a weapon which can result in fatigue and inaccuracy.Get our guide
