U.S. Troops Gain Additional Side Armor Body Protection

    Chandler-Based ArmorWorks Awarded $5.6 Million Dollar Contract from U.S.
Marine Corps

    CHANDLER, ARIZ., March 29 /CNW/ - Chandler-based ArmorWorks has received
a contract from the United States Marine Corps for Enhanced Side Small Arms
Protective Inserts (S-SAPIs), protecting U.S. troops' sides with ceramic and
composite armor technology. The $5.6 million contract is for 14,000 sets of
S-SAPIs to be fulfilled by the end of 2007.

    "We are happy that our life saving technology was selected by the U.S.
Marines. Our main goal is protecting the soldier and delivering the highest
quality products to our troops," said Bill Perciballi, CEO and President of
ArmorWorks. "We're committed to continually developing new technologies and
advancements in armor protection. This recent contract helps to solidify
ArmorWorks' role in the protection of our troops."

    The S-SAPIs use the same advanced armor technologies as the ArmorWorks
Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPIs), and are made for the Interceptor body
armor system.

    ArmorWorks was previously awarded two indefinite delivery, indefinite
quantity (ID/IQ) contracts for S-SAPI in September 2006 totaling over $33
million. ArmorWorks currently supplies the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and the
U.S. Marine Corps with body armor and aircraft armor. The company is also
supplying its lightweight add-on armor kits for trucks and HMMWVs to protect
these vehicles against improvised explosive devices and other enemy threats.
