The Armored Group and McSweeney Announce Strategic Alliance

The Armored Group and McSweeney Designs are happy to announce they have formed a strategic alliance that will enable them to provide world class up-armored executive luxury coaches and dignitary transportation vehicles.
    PHOENIX, AZ, August 02, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Armored Group and McSweeney Designs are happy to announce they have formed a strategic alliance that will enable them to provide world class up-armored executive luxury coaches and dignitary transportation vehicles to a wide array of clients all over the world. This strategic alliance enables both companies to harness the collective intelligence of both engineering groups to bring added value to their clients and pursue new avenues of business that were remote to both organizations prior to the agreement.

The Armored Group and McSweeney teams have worked on several projects together over the last couple years, the most significant being the collaboration of the MD XUV Presidential Motorcade. The technology required for that particular class of vehicle was highly sophisticated and required a significant amount of collaboration between both companies' engineering and manufacturing teams. The success of that enterprise has already led them to undertake the challenge of adapting and redeploying their proprietary MD XUV Motorcade technologies for similar projects on new vehicle platforms which have been commissioned for the protection of another foreign Head of State client.

The combined team have several additional projects in the pipeline for up-armored executive mobile offices and luxury passenger vehicles for an influential roster of dignitary clients in various regions around the globe. Because of the level of security required by their high-profile clients, certain information on personal identity as well as specific types of vehicles built and technologies employed are proprietary and are closely guarded by the discretion of both The Armored Group and McSweeney Designs.

Jeffrey Hunter, XO executive officer of McSweeney Designs stated: "The MD XUV Presidential Motorcade was the first project to offer a glimpse into the full potential of the strategic alliance between The Armored Group and McSweeney Designs, while we both feel that this project delivered exceptionally well on the promise of our collaboration, we still feel that we are only now scratching the surface of what will be possible now that our alliance is more fully geared toward this type of deeper cooperation on an ongoing basis. The Armored Group is recognized as the industry leader and has decades of experience and certification in the up-armored segment, there is no one else better to align ourselves with."

"We look forward to a long partnership with McSweeney Designs. Together we will be able to extend our reach far beyond what we could reasonably achieve acting independently and do so in a much more efficient and rapid way," said Bob Pazderka, president of The Armored Group. "We look forward to collaborating on new innovations that will allow both our companies to collectively and simultaneously, deliver on the promise of optimal threat-level protection and an unparalleled level of comfort and amenities."

Both The Armored Group and McSweeney Designs plan to expand their co-developed vehicle portfolio to fill the unique demands and requests of their clients. In addition to ongoing executive luxury coaches and dignitary transportation opportunities; other projects currently under consideration and co-development include several highly sophisticated tactical projects such as a unique modular, platform neutral, rapid deployment weapons system for a client with an innovative and patented artillery solution.
