Kingston Mayor, Congressman Tour Armor Dynamics Facility

August 6, 2012 – Kingston Mayor Shayne Gallo hosted U.S. Representative Chris Gibson Monday on a tour of the City of Kingston, highlighting the City’s businesses and revitalization efforts. The group, including staff and development personnel from both administrations visited Armor Dynamics, touring the facility and getting an overview of the company’s life-saving technology.

Both Mayor Gallo and Rep. Gibson have shown great support for Armor Dynamics efforts ranging from armoring local and state law enforcement agencies, to providing vehicle-armor solutions to the Army.

“The Company was honored to be included in the Mayor’s itinerary for the day” said company President Malachy Meechan. “Both Mayor Gallo and Congressman Gibson have an acute understanding of the practical and commercial potential of our technology and having their support provides us with a great deal of encouragement.”

Gibson, of Kinderhook, is a retired Army Colonel who was deployed seven times, including four combat tours in Iraq. Prior to his retirement, Gibson commanded the 82nd Airborne Division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team (BCT) during the opening month of the humanitarian relief operations in Haiti. The Secretary of the Army awarded the BCT the Superior Unit Award for their actions in Haiti.

The focus of Monday’s tour was Law Enforcement Vehicle Armor. Mayor Gallo expressed his continued support of Project Armor: Kingston, the Kingston PBA’s effort to outfit the Kingston Police Department fleet with Armor Dynamics Law Enforcement Vehicle Armor through the help of the local business community.

Gibson and Gallo witnessed a first-hand ballistic demonstration of Armor Dynamics’ protection technology, including Law Enforcement Vehicle Armor, the Ballistic Visor and Ballistic Inserts.

To date, Project Armor has raised funding for more than half of the department’s vehicles.

Armor Dynamics Aims to Provide Vehicle Armor for Kingston Police Department Fleet

Kingston-based company teams with local businesses to provide state-of-the-art vehicle armor protection.

KINGSTON – Armor Dynamics is teaming up with the local business community in an effort to armor the Kingston Police Department fleet of 16 vehicles and protect the men and women who protect us each day.

The program, titled Project Armor: Kingston, has been endorsed by new Kingston Police Chief Egidio Tinti and incoming Mayor Shane Gallo, as well as the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce.

“This is a great moment for Kingston,” said Armor Dynamics President Malachy Meechan. “With new leadership in both City Hall and the Police Department and urban renewal projects under way, the city and its businesses and citizens have a great opportunity here to galvanize and move forward.”

“We’re looking to our local business leaders now to lead this change.”

Armor Dynamics lightweight vehicle armor system provides ballistic door protection, while two Ballistic Sun Visors add front and side window protection.
All tax-deductible donations to Project Armor will be deposited with the Kingston Police Benevolent Association. Each donor to the program will receive a Project Armor storefront insignia and matching vehicle stickers to signify their support for and involvement in the program.

Additionally, for every nine vehicles armored with funds from the community, Armor Dynamics will provide vehicle armor for the tenth vehicle at no cost. Armor Dynamics will also incur all labor costs for vehicle installation.

“The solution that we are providing through Project Armor is the product of a unique approach to ballistic protection,” said Armor Dynamics President Malachy Meechan. “We are utilizing our knowledge and experience in military research and development and combining state of the art materials with proprietary geometries. The result is an extremely lightweight and affordable system that will stop and capture the caliber of threats commonly found in an urban environment.”

With a tough economic climate showing no signs of abatement, and rising crime rates, Armor Dynamics and the Kingston PBA will seek the help of local and national businesses and private donors. The cost-effective solution used will allow the company to armor the entire fleet for a little over $35,000.
