Press release date: Jul 21, 2014


MKU, a leading manufacturer of ballistic protection equipment, received excellent response and great interest from delegates of the state police forces at the International Police Expo 2014 for its state-of-the-art and inovative solutions. The MKU team was led by Mr. Vaibhav Gupta, VP, Domestic Sales.

MKU has been active in the Indian market for long. It has recently completed supply of body armour and helmets to Rajasthan Police and has been awarded a contract for body armour by Gujarat Police. Its products are used by Marcos (Marine Commandos), SPG and NSG personnel besides many of the state police and para military forces in India. It is currently participating by invitation in RFPs worth more than Rs. 1200 crore for body armour released by the Indian MOD.

In order to develop innovative and ahead of the curve technological solutions and world class products and to focus on R&D, MKU invested in a Technology Centre in Kanpur in 2013. It is the only Indian company to have been awarded the stringent NIJ 0106 certification for its body armour.

One of the featured products at the show was the Instavest, a patented quick release jacket by MKU. This is the fastest quick release ballistic jacket which can be divested by the wearer in one single action in a fraction of a second and re-assembled again very quickly. Another featured product in the personal protection range was the 'BoltFree Helmet' which is based on 'no-drill' concept, that not only provides uniform protection across the shell but also safety from secondary metallic fragments.
