News International-French

16 May 2014

The TenCate lightweight composite armour system to be supplied protects vehicle occupants against the effects of blasts, fragments, and projectiles. The solution is engineered to fit the Nexter vehicle platform. 

Following this significant order from Nexter Systems to TenCate, on Thursday 15 May the French ambassador to Denmark, François Zimeray, visited the Ten Cate Advanced Armour facilities in Denmark. Upon a request from the French Embassy, TenCate was singled out by Nexter as an example of how Danish Industry stands to benefit from Nexter’s involvement in the armoured personnel carriers (APC) and artillery procurement projects currently being undertaken by Denmark.

The company has facilities in Denmark, France, Netherlands, the UK and USA, sales offices in India, Dubai and Singapore and is a global provider of customised, lightweight ballistic protection solutions for the complete range of requirements, from personal protection through all vehicle types, helicopter and aircraft applications as well as naval platforms up to and including principal warships.
