More jobs coming to Hebron
The new jobs will support a $93 million federal contract to provide a new, lighter weight ballistic helmet to the U.S. Army.
The new version of the Advanced Combat Helmet weighs four ounces less than the current helmet. It is considered a significant step in the Army’s efforts to lighten the soldier’s load.
ArmorSource is the largest ballistic helmet manufacturer in the country. Its state-of-the-art 120,000 square foot facility in Hebron can produce more than 500,000 helmet per year. The company was founded in 2005.
