The Armored Group, LLC (TAG) began as an armored vehicle manufacturer in 1992. Our focus was exclusively on the Cash-In-Transit (CIT) business, with the simple goal of providing each client with the highest level of security. We maintain the flexibility that ensures each of our customer’s needs would be met individually. Within a short period, we established ourselves as the leading builder of U.S. armored Cash-In-Transit vehicles.
Moving forward with our efforts, the company’s focus shifted and expanded to providing TAG armored vehicles to two other distinct markets. The first was law enforcement with SWAT, police and tactical vehicle manufacturing. The second was comprised of the high-end passenger vehicles and SUVs for private and corporate clients. Today, TAG has grown to become one of the largest full-line commercial armored truck suppliers in the country and continues to set the standard for customization, reliability, and protection.
Our world-class engineering and design team has the capability and experience to plan and build everything from an armored pick-up truck to off-road 4×4 armored personnel carrier (APC) vehicle and anything in between. We specialize in these three categories of bullet-resistant vehicles: armored personnel carriers, personal protection vehicles, and cash-in-transit vehicles.
Our global company specializes in developing and marketing armored vehicles in both the domestic United States and international markets. Today, we have four manufacturing locations in key positions around the globe. This is how we are well positioned to compete with other armored car companies in the U.S. and internationally on price, quality, and delivery time. The diversity we offer through different customization abilities as an armored vehicle manufacturer ensures that our customers will receive a vehicle best suited to their individual needs.
The TAG armored vehicle manufacturing and sales teams are fully capable of reacting to the needs of our customers. By sharing knowledge between our plants, sales, and servicing locations in these different countries, we stay updated on new and changing technology as well as safety and security issues. We are proficient in assessing what works and what does not. Our technicians take pride in our ability to make the rapid changes necessary to fit the needs of our customers.
Our integrity is backed by stringent quality controls, proven manufacturing systems, and world-class certifications that meet the highest standards of safety. We are especially proud of our recent VPAM-BRV 2009/VR7 Ballistic ERV 2010 Blast Certification, which we received for both our Toyota Land Cruiser and our Toyota Hilux armoring solutions. This certification is based upon the rigorous and extreme testing of the independent ballistic testing laboratories of Beschussamt in Ulm, Germany. It demonstrates our commitment to occupant safety. In addition, each of our production facilities is ISO 9001 certified. They are also managed by experienced professionals equipped to service customers and fulfill orders around the world.
As a longtime member of the Independent Armored Car Operator’s Association (IACOA), The Armored Group, LLC takes an aggressive approach in our constant effort to increase safety for our cash movers. We are GSA approved with a list of clients that include:
