MKU Limited has become the first company from outside of Brazil to provide ballistic vests to the elite Military Police in Sao Paulo. This was in response to a tender for 14,500 ballistic vests based on the latest NIJ 0101.06 standard of the USA’s National Institute of Justice. The specifications of the tender for the ballistic vests were highly focused on overall end-user experience with special emphasis on comfort, lighter weight and flexibility. This global tender attracted many international companies and was highly contested.
Known for its expertise in providing advanced ballistic solutions using proprietary design and patented technologies, MKU has over three decades of experience coupled with state-of-the-art infrastructure and manufacturing processes. These high-performance vests, with Level IIIA protection, were custom designed by MKU to ensure enhanced ballistic protection at lower weights, comfort, mobility and ease of use. They are made using special antibacterial fabrics, which ensures comfort, even over prolonged use. MKU delivered the vests in over 21 different sizes as per the customer request. The vests are NIJ certified and were thoroughly tested for performance, during the tender process and after they were delivered.
