HEBRON, Ohio, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ArmorSource, LLC announced today that defense industry executive and decorated Army veteran Carl Fulmore will join the company as Vice President of Business Development. Fulmore is currently a Director of Business Development at BAE Systems, Inc. Mr. Fulmore comes to ArmorSource, the world's leading ballistic helmet manufacturer, with an in-depth knowledge of the industry and the experience of a more than 20 year, distinguished career in the military where he served in the Infantry, the Special Forces and the Acquisition Corps.
In his new role with the company, Fulmore will oversee ArmorSource's domestic business development efforts with the military, which spans the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and the Special Operations Command. Fulmore will capture new business opportunities for ArmorSource, focusing on innovative products such as the Lightweight Advanced Combat Helmet (LWACH), the Ultra Lightweight Advanced Combat Helmet (ULWACH), and the new generation of mission-specific configurations with the ability to suppress 7.62mm ballistic threats.
"At ArmorSource, we are fully committed to equipping U.S. troops with the best head protection available. We make sure that our products do everything possible to help our warfighters be more effective, more efficient and safer," said Yoav Kapah, President and CEO of ArmorSource. "Carl has excellent experience and he knows ballistic helmets from his days using them in the Army and Special Forces, and from his time overseeing their acquisition as an Assistant Program Manager for the Program Executive Office (PEO) Soldier. His great private sector experience within the protective equipment industry is just one more reason that I am honored to have Carl as a part of our team at ArmorSource.
"ArmorSource is leading innovation in the ballistic head protection market in every way. I am thrilled to be working with a team that is bringing to the warfighter the lightest and strongest helmets available, and I look forward to expanding ArmorSource's presence within the U.S. Armed Forces and law enforcement agencies," said Fulmore. "Beyond having exceptional technology, I know from my prior work that ArmorSource has a great record of quality and on time delivery. That matters to program staff and end users. They are consistent, honest and great at what they do. I am proud to be part of the team and look forward to working with Mr. Kapah to continue growing the company."
Fulmore begins his role as ArmorSource's Vice President of Business Development on March 18, 2013.
More About ArmorSource
ArmorSource is located in Hebron, Ohio. The Company was founded in 2005 by Yoav Kapah, Don Blake, and Larry Dickson. Since the company's creation, these three icons in the industry have always known that Research and Development never ends, and their constant innovation is proof positive of their commitment to enhancing the safety of our men and women in uniform. ArmorSource's tenacity and determination ultimately delivered the lightest and strongest Combat Helmet in the world known as the AS-501 Ultra-Light Advanced Combat Helmet. Although this helmet is one of many super-advanced products in their inventory of combat and law enforcement protective solutions, it is the most sought after due to its average weight of 1.1 kg (or 2.4 pounds) with ballistic performance that outperforms the current fielded helmet which weighs in at 3.3 pounds. Other solutions in their arsenal are the AS-600 Rifle-Resistant High Protection Assault Helmet, defending against high-velocity fragmentation and rifle ammunition; the AS-400 Lightweight Assault Helmet for Special Forces; Boltless helmets for customers that want to minimize the need for ballistic hardware; Special Operation style 'high cut', 'mid cut', and 'low cut' helmets built to support unique-mission environments; in addition to many others.
