The CEO of Armour Group, Mr. Robert Tatum, met with Governor Rick Scott and Enterprise Florida representatives at IAI headquarters. Armour Group has formed a teaming agreement with Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI). This agreement is a prime example of international business development Florida is fostering.

IAI is Israel’s prime aerospace and aviation manufacturer. IAI also designs and builds fighter aircraft, mid-sized business jets, and maintains foreign-built military and civilian aircraft. The company also works on a number of missile, avionics, and space-based systems.
Armour Group and IAI are jointly developing new products, have reciprocal manufacturing agreements, and cooperatively sell each others’ products.

When asked how the IAI-Armour Group relationship was benefiting Florida, Mr. Tatum responded, “In a period of economic recession, Armour Group has been able to bring high-paying manufacturing jobs to Broward County. It is personally and professionally rewarding to see our products protect lives in high-risk zones around the world and that we are contributing to the economic well-being of Florida’s citizens at the same time.”

By all indications, 2012 is projected to be an even better year than 2011 for Armour Group, with orders for armored vehicles, up-armor kits, and ballistic glass on the upswing.
