On the 18th and 19th of May, EnGarde will join over 200 manufacturers and suppliers at Twenthe Airport in the Netherlands at the eRic exhibition. The eRic is the connection platform for safety professionals from all government agencies and commercial service.

With the end-goal of making the Netherlands safer, the eRic exhibition provides an accessible platform where professionals in the field meet to exchange ideas and learn from each other.

The eRic’s attendees include professionals who are faced with threats every day. This includes members of the police force, the fire brigade, public order services and first-responders.  Executives, purchasers and managers will also be present to survey the latest developments in their respective fields.

EnGarde, in partnership with Pebetex, supply the BOAs in Eindhoven with body armor. The BOAs are the municipality police who coordinate with the police and handle a variety of jobs while contributing to making the city a safer place.

The BOAs have been operating in Eindhoven since 2007, and now have around 70 members who use EnGarde vests. Since they often find themselves in tense confrontations while on patrol, EnGarde ballistic vests provide them with indispensable protection on the job.

While EnGarde manufactures the soft ballistic panels, Pebetex manufactures the textile carriers for the external load bearing ballistic jacket created specifically for the BOAs. Visitors are welcome to try on the overt vests at Booth No. 131 from 10:00 to 17:00.
