Kevlar® Dare Bigger™ Moments: Armourshield UK

Kevlar® Dare Bigger™ Moments

Armourshield UK was founded in 1974 at the same time Body Armour was first introduced to DuPont™ Kevlar®.  Kevlar® was being pilot woven by Fothergill & Harvey just outside Manchester.   Michael Sacks, managing director of Armourshield, started ballistic testing with the assistance of Greater Manchester Police and UK Home Office and within a short term provided 43 British Police forces and the Ministry of Defence with the new lightweight flexible Body Armour.

“We at Armourshield continue to be a most supportive company utilizing DuPont™ Kevlar®, saving so many lives for over 40 years!” said Michael Sacks.
