Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PHOENIX - Jan 12, 2017 - The Armored Group (TAG) has just announced they have been awarded a 10-year blanket purchase agreement (BPA) with the Department of State. A blanket purchase agreement offers a simplified acquisition method that government agencies use to fill anticipated repetitive needs for supplies and services. Under this agreement, The Armored Group will provide a wide range of armored vehicles for the Bureau of Diplomatic Security.
The Armored Group LLC, was one of three contractors awarded the initial BPA “calls” to deliver the first vehicles to the Department of State using this new agreement. Chief Operations Officer of The Armored Group, Jeff Carnicom, reacted to the agreement by saying, “The Armored Group considers it an
honor and great responsibility to serve the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Diplomatic Security by providing the best-in-class specialty armored vehicles that provide the highest level of protection available.”
The Armored Group will be providing full armor and integration packages on the Mercedes Sprinter, Nissan Patrol and Chevy Express Van platforms. The BPA also gives The Armored Group a fair opportunity to compete for the up-armor of a variety of additional SUVs such as Chevrolet Suburban and Toyota Land Cruiser, sedans including the Chevrolet Caprice and the Cadillac XTS and pick-ups such as the Toyota Hilux and the Chevrolet Silverado.
We are pleased to expand our long-standing partnership with the Department of State through this 10-year agreement” said Robert Pazderka, President and CEO of The Armored Group, LLC. “We look forward to continuing to help the agency achieve their goal of fielding the best equipment for protection of life and property”. “We take great pride and honor in providing armored vehicles for our country’s diplomats serving around the world.”
