Phalanx Defense Systems Announces DKX Armor Acquisition

February 11, 2015  | 

Phalanx Defense Systems, LLC, a leader in the design, development and manufacturing of body armor, protective systems and defense products has finalized the acquisition and relocation of DKX Armor to the Phalanx Defense Systems facility in Gainesville, Fla.

DKX Armor, previously located in Bismark, N.D., will continue to focus on the development of lightweight rifle and pistol plate armor. The DKX MAX III (NIJ III 0101-06) is popular with law enforcement, military and federal agencies that require high-performance, lightweight armor.

“DKX Armor brings us capabilities that are a natural fit to our innovative focus”, said James Coats, CEO, Applied Sciences of Phalanx Defense Systems. “Designs for next-generation armor must incorporate improved functionality in all areas of system design. Our existing ballistic plates, and those in final design stages, will position Phalanx for rapid growth in the plate, plate carrier systems and non-traditional armor segments of the industry.”

“Phalanx shares DKX’s passion for innovation, best-in-class products, customer service and most importantly, for saving lives. The joining of our companies promises a much broader product offering, exciting new products, and the continuance of DKX’s existing line of groundbreaking offerings,” Coats added.

Agencies and units can find DKX Armor products through an existing network of dealers across the United States. Opportunities exist for additional Law Enforcement distributors, and interested parties can contact DKX Armor or Phalanx Defense Systems through their websites (www.dkxarmor.com; www.phalanxsystems.com).
