As part of the Aerospace, Defence and Security Programme lead by The Department of Trade and Industry (the DTI), Imperial Armour was one of thirty-five South African Advanced Manufacturers selected to participate in the Investment and Trade Initiative (ITI) to Brazil.

Imperial Armour was founded in 2000, and has become a World Leading manufacturer of Personal Protective Equipment. We are proud to be considered as one of the leading South African companies with highly specialised skills and products. The initiative presented us with various opportunities to market our company in Brazil, as well as to collaborate in projects with Brazilian companies, with the view of engaging with Brazilian entities on projects to realise the 2014 FIFA Soccer World Cup.

The Company is recognised as the Top Gender Empowered Company in South Africa, and are widely supported by industry as a “ONE STOP MANUFACTURING COMPANY” who supply Military, Police, Fire, Emergency Services, Demining and Marines to over 75 countries worldwide.

Imperial Armour focuses on Research and Development, allowing us to introduce innovative solutions. We are a company known for building and maintaining strong relationships with our clients due to our credibility and reliability giving us freedom to offer customised and branded solutions. The visit to Brazil ensured that we received exposure to the relevant business audience in Brazil, and we believe that we have made good inroads.
