Armoring a Truck

Armoring a Truck

Our manufacturing approach sets us apart from the competition. We build our products from scratch with experienced personnel from our in-house departments. Our focus is always on innovative designs to improve protection and mobility for our armored cars and trucks. We check every component of your armored vehicle before it leaves the manufacturing floor to ensure that you get the highest quality product possible.

CITE is certified as MWBE (Minority & Women Owned Business Development) through the state of Mississippi and is certified in a SBA Approved Hubzone.

In-House Departments

Engineering & Design Department

Welding

Welding

We design and engineer the armored vehicle that is right for you.  Just tell us your protection needs, what you do and where you’re going to use the vehicle, and we’ll customize the vehicle and armoring that fits your needs. We’ll send you a PDF of the drawing to make sure we got everything right before the next stage begins.

Metal Forming & Fabrication Department

This is where your armored vehicle parts are cut to the specifications on the CAD drawings developed by our engineers. Metal is cut on a CNC cutting machine and formed as needed. Floors, walls, and bulkheads are also built in this department.

Security Systems, Locks & Hardware Installation Department

Our team installs high security locks and hardware based on your custom specifications. This may include slam locks, rotary latches, or inter-lock systems.

Trim, Paint, and Body Shop

Our body shop pros prep your armored vehicle prior to applying the exterior and interior paint in our shop. While standard one-color exterior paint is offered with most vehicles, we can custom paint any vehicle as well as apply custom decals.

AC, Wiring, and Specialty Products Department

Air conditioning is installed and we manufacture complete wiring systems including switch panels, power distribution center and harness. We install state of the art camera/DVR/GPS tracking security systems.

Armored Vehicles Repair

Our repairs department can handle minor repairs to complete overhauls. Whatever your needs, our talented team of fabricators, welders, body shop professionals and painters can make your vehicle look like new.

Parts Department

Need a part for your armored vehicle? Give us a call so we can help you find what you need. We carry A/C and heating units, seats, locks, bumpers, cameras, lights, electronics, windshields, run flat tires and more. Even if we didn’t manufacture your vehicle – we can get the part for you.

Manufacturing Process

We want to make sure we get everything right, so the manufacturing process takes a little time. It may take up between 60-90 days for you to get your armored vehicle, depending on where we are shipping it.
