Meaning “strong foundation or support” in Hebrew, Masada is an ancient stone fortress in southern Israel’s Judean Desert, located high above the Dead Sea on a tall, rocky mesa. Built around 30 B.C.E, the complex is a well-preserved attestation to the history of the ancient kingdom of Israel and the courage of its people in the face of a Roman siege. The fortress, in its structure and design, was, at the time, a sophisticated, innovative construction which provided safeguard against invaders.
In 2009, drawing from the symbolic meaning of the ancient fortress, Masada Armour was established. Since then, Masada Armour’s focus has been on providing solid support to the armed forces. With ballistic protection at its centre, Masada Armour has been designing and manufacturing a unique range of protective equipment with an uncompromising commitment to quality, schedule and performance. The company grew further in 2017 with addition of several partners, gaining more and more recognition and market share in Israel and worldwide due to its innovative approach towards armoured technology, supporting the ever-changing needs of armed forces, law enforcement and civilians.
