Protectives Trading celebrates fifth anniversary sealing partnership with Chiltern Global UK in time for IDEX 2021

Abu Dhabi, February 2021 – Protectives Trading, a UAE based company specialized in offering Body Armor, Tactical Gear & Secure SATCOM Systems, announces a new partnership with Chiltern Global UK at IDEX 2021, which will be exhibiting on stand 10-E01.


Coinciding with this year’s IDEX, Protectives Trading is celebrating half a decade of successfully supporting clients across the Gulf.  Since its formation in 2016, the company has come a long way from supporting their initial partner BPE-USA, a manufacturer of protective gear headquartered in California, to today’s extensive range of product categories of reliable and high-quality products.


The company’s latest partnership with Chiltern Global, a manufacturer of highly reliable and high-quality police and military protective equipment, headquartered in the UK, will add to their business model of representing medium sized companies from Europe and the United Stated of America in the Middle East, with the purpose of promoting their products and systems as well as conducting early business development in the region.


“The big players in the defense sector tend to absorb most of the attention of government customers while highly innovative and customer-focused, medium sized manufacturers face challenges in positioning themselves, especially without having established subsidiaries in the Gulf region. Our proposition adds tremendous value for both sides, for the manufacturers getting exposure and for government organisations getting access to innovation, flexibility and cost 

efficiency, they wouldn’t get from the major players”, explains Andreas Krenn, Managing Director Protectives Trading FZE.


“Chiltern Global is delighted to work in partnership with Protectives Trading in the Gulf region and looks forward to jointly wining new government contracts for our high-quality products and on-time delivery”, says Matthew Butterworth, Managing Director of Chiltern Global.


Protectives Trading’s range of innovative products stretches from protective and tactical gear, to highly customize-able RIB combat boats and further to cutting-edge SATCOM solutions for governments. These SATCOM solutions can be used in aircrafts, vehicles and maritime vessels which excels in encryption and compression technologies to meet the very specific demands of security services.


“Among our protective gear portfolio, we have not only seen an increased demand for ballistic vests, plates and helmets but have also received rising interest in CBRN suits, masks and gear over the last couple of years. With this partnership we add another supplier who offers bespoke manufacturing of police, military and defense equipment, which will be showcased at this year’s IDEX” adds Krenn.
