Southern California Gold Products qualifies armored cab as John Deere Tier 1 supplier

Southern California Gold Products, Inc. (SCGP), the dominant supplier of armor solutions for construction heavy equipment, has produced a 100% successful live fire test result at the Army Test Center in Aberdeen Maryland.  The Hydraulic Excavator (HYEX) Program is Green according to industry sources, as the John Deere and SCGP team prepares to build out the 300 plus unit requirement this year.  Army Combat Engineers will benefit from the full cab protection against land mines, IEDs, and direct fire threats.

“SCGP’s Modular Armor Protection System (MAPSTM ) is readily tailored to additional equipment models.  We have developed the system carefully over several years to make certain of that,” said Glenn Harris from his California manufacturing facility.  “The MAPS has already been fitted to twenty models from various OEMs.”

SCGP’s record for quick delivery in response to urgent war-time demands is unsurpassed and continues to grow under the HYEX Program.  The design and manufacture of armor at SCGP began in 2003 with the delivery and installation of more than 5,000 gunner protection kits for the HMMWV in theater within a six week time frame from start to finish.  By bringing an entrepreneurial spirit to the traditionally stodgy defense industry, SCGP is breaking new ground that will continue to be a tough act for others to follow.
