Leading Edge Materials Corp. (LEMIF)

Stockhouse and InvestorsHub reported on Leading Edge Materials Corp. (LEMIF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Leading Edge Materials Corp. acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Tasman Metals Ltd. by way of a plan of arrangement in August 2016. The main assets of the Company are in Scandinavia. Leading Edge’s core investments are matched to high growth markets, linked to the international shift to low-carbon energy generation and energy storage. Its focus is on graphite, lithium, cobalt, rare earth elements (REEs), and tungsten and it has strong links to European research and innovation. Leading Edge Materials is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.

Leading Edge Materials’ assets and research emphasis are towards the raw materials for Li-ion batteries (graphite, lithium, high purity aluminium); materials for high thermal efficiency building products (graphite, silica, nepheline); and materials that improve the efficiency of energy generation (dysprosium, neodymium, hafnium).

The Company has 100 percent ownership of the fully permitted Woxna graphite facility. It also has 100 percent ownership of the Norra Karr rare earth element (REE) project.

Leading Edge’s Woxna is a fully permitted site. It has an open pit mine, a graphite processing facility, and a tailings storage dam already constructed. The site is presently permitted to feed 100,000 ton of graphitic rock annually. This allows for the production of about 10,000 tons of graphite concentrate. The Company began graphite production at the Woxna Graphite project in July of 2014.

Norra Kärr is one of the world’s main heavy REE resources. It has an unusual enrichment in the most critical REEs: dysprosium (Dy), terbium (Tb) and yttrium (Y). Norra Kärr is in southern Sweden, roughly 300km SW of Stockholm.

Recently, Leading Edge Materials provided an update on its 100 percent owned Norra Kärr heavy rare earth element (REE) project in Sweden.  Norra Kärr is an internationally important heavy REE deposit. It has a particular enrichment of the magnetic metals dysprosium (Dy) and neodymium (Nd).

Process development research on Norra Kärr, completed under the European Commission funded EURARE project, has attained considerable technical milestones.  Research culminated with the production of roughly 25 kg of mixed REE carbonate produced from a eudialyte concentrate, utilizing a new and optimized hydrometallurgical flowsheet. EURARE is a 5-year research project co-funded by the European Commission.

Last month, Leading Edge Materials announced its participation in a Swedish Government Funded research project called "Natural Swedish Graphite for Future Lithium Ion Batteries". Leading Edge Materials is a founding participant in the project, along with the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre (ÅABC), Uppsala University, Sweden.

This project is centered on the application and optimization of high purity natural graphite as anode material for lithium ion batteries, utilizing graphite sourced from Leading Edge's Woxna project in Sweden.

Goals of this project include the manufacture of natural graphite powder with optimized particle size distribution and shape to facilitate fast lithium movement; and testing of graphite electrodes using new processes and binders for commercialization.

Project goals also include optimization of the natural graphite purification process with as low environmental impact as possible. In addition, goals include development of polymeric composites that withstand long term exposure to high temperatures and humidity through employing graphene as a diffusion barrier.

Leading Edge Materials Corp. (LEMIF), closed Friday's trading session at $0.4771, down 3.26%, on 33,691 volume with 47 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 58,360 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.325/$0.7141.

Pure Energy Minerals Limited (PEMIF)

TradingView and InvestorsHub reported on Pure Energy Minerals Limited (PEMIF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Pure Energy Minerals Limited engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties. The Company is a lithium-brine resource developer working to become a low-cost supplier for the increasing lithium battery industry. Its flagship lithium brine project is in Clayton Valley, Nevada, immediately contiguous to North America’s only producing lithium mine, which is Albemarle’s Silver Peak lithium brine mine. Listed on the OTCQB, Pure Energy Minerals is based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Pure Energy Minerals is also at the vanguard of new processing technologies for lithium. This is through the Company’s collaboration with global multinational technology partners including Tenova Bateman (Tenova Bateman Technologies). 

The Clayton Valley South Project is in Esmeralda County, Nevada, halfway between Las Vegas and Reno. The Project is a 9,500 Acre Lithium Brine Project. The Clayton Valley South (CVS) Project contains an inferred mineral resource of 816,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE), reported in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 (N1 43-101) on July 28, 2015. 

The Clayton Valley lithium deposit is a salty groundwater (brine). It has high levels of lithium contained in a series of aquifers. Metallurgical and process studies are taking place at the Clayton Valley South Project to better understand the feasibility and economics of utilizing modern environmentally-responsible processing technology to convert the Clayton Valley South brines into high purity lithium products for new energy storage uses.  

Pure Energy Minerals acquired an option in 2017 to purchase 100 percent interest in more than 13,000 hectares (32,000 acres) of prospective lithium brine exploitation concessions on the Pocitos Salar in Salta Province, Argentina. The Properties are situated in the heart of Argentina’s lithium-rich Puna Region. 

Pure Energy Minerals closed its acquisition in March 2017 of the purchase option on lithium brine mining concessions in Salta, Argentina announced above. The Company executed a definitive property purchase agreement under Argentine law with the private owners. 

Pure Energy Minerals announced this past May that it closed its previously announced transactions with Lithium X Energy, GeoXplor, and Clayton Valley Lithium, together with GeoXplor,  (the “Optionors”) and acquired Lithium X’s interest in 756 unpatented mineral claims encompassing roughly 15,000 acres (the “LIX Claims”) in Clayton Valley, Nevada. With the addition of these LIX Claims, Pure Energy will have an interest in 1,104 unpatented mineral claims covering about 26,000 acres in Esmeralda County, now called the Clayton Valley Lithium Brine Project (CV Project).

Last month, Pure Energy Minerals announced positive initial results from the geophysical exploration program at its Terra Cotta Project (TCP) positioned on the Pocitos Salar in Salta Province, Argentina. Preliminary reviews of the geophysical data show extensive zones of high electrical conductivity. These may indicate the presence of correspondingly high-density brine.

Additionally, Pure Energy Minerals announced in October that it executed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Tenova Advanced Technologies Ltd. (TAT), TAKRAF USA, INC. (together, Tenova) and their Technology Partners to design, build, and operate a pilot plant to demonstrate the viability of the lithium brine extraction and processing technologies developed and patented by TAT (the Tenova Process). The pilot plant is the next major step to develop Pure Energy’s Clayton Valley lithium brine project (CV Project) in Nevada, as the world’s most efficient and environmentally friendly lithium production facility.

This week, Pure Energy Minerals announced that it entered into an asset purchase agreement with Advantage Lithium Corp. and Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp. to acquire the Clayton NE claim blocks in Esmeralda County. The Acquired Claims are contiguous with the northern portion of the Company’s Clayton Valley Project (CV Project) and to Albemarle Corp.’s Silver Peak Operations. Upon completion of the acquisition of the new claims, Pure Energy’s CV Project will encompass roughly 26,050 acres (10,542 hectares). The expectation is that the acquisition will close on or before November 30, 2017.

Pure Energy Minerals Limited (PEMIF), closed Friday's trading session at $0.428, up 9.94%, on 737,170 volume with 202 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 237,648 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.33/$0.5663.

NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Zinc One Resources Inc. (TSX-V:Z) (OTC:ZZZOF) (FSE:RH33), a client of NNW specializing in the acquisition, exploration and development of advanced zinc assets in mining-friendly jurisdictions. The publication, titled, "Producers Aim to Address Growing Global Zinc Deficit amid Price Surge, Rising Demand," highlights zinc mining companies working to extract the highly prized commodity that is vital to the world's diverse infrastructure and power generation sectors. To view the full publication, visit: https://www.networknewswire.com/producers-aim-address-growing-global-zinc-deficit-amid-price-surge-rising-demand/

Zinc One Resources, Inc. (TSX-V: Z) (OTC: ZZZOF) (FSE: RH33) is a Vancouver, Canada-based company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of prospective and advanced zinc projects in mining friendly jurisdictions. Zinc One's key assets are the Bongará Zinc Mine and Charlotte-Bongará Zinc-Oxide Project in north-central Peru. Historical production of the Bongará Mine, which was mined from 2007-2008 until a fall in zinc prices shut it down, revealed greater than 20 percent zinc grades and recoveries over 90 percent, all from surface mining. Bongará's high grade zinc mineralization is considered a rare situation and one that Zinc One management is poised to explore further. The neighboring Charlotte-Bongará Zinc-Oxide Project has multiple at-surface, high-grade drill intercepts providing numerous drill targets.

Zinc One controls both zinc-oxide mine projects, making it the first time a single operator has been in control of the two locations, giving the company a unique opportunity to delineate a substantial high-grade, zinc-oxide resource along a 4 kilometres-long trend. A previous operator produced 55.1 million pounds of zinc, running at 358 tonnes a day. Zinc One has access to all data and technical work dating back to the 1990s and controls a third zinc prospect located in central Peru as part of its portfolio.

The company has also received approval from Peru's Ministry of Energy and Mines to suspend the mine closure at the Bongará location, which allows Zinc One to utilize the current Environmental Impact Assessment attached to the project for current and future permitting. This critical approval allows the company to take another important step forward in its plans to reopen production at the Bongará zinc-oxide project. Zinc One's project locations involve open pit/surface mining, requiring less infrastructure and a much better cost ratio than traditional underground mines.

Zinc One is managed by a proven team of exploration geologists and engineers with extensive experience in constructing and operating successful mining operations. The company's business strategy includes restarting production at the Bongará Zinc-Oxide Mine with exploration of targets along a 6-kilometer strike as well as exploring the Charlotte Bongará Zinc-Oxide Project.

World stockpiles of zinc are at multiyear lows while demand continues to be strong. In 2016, zinc demand became greater than the available supply for the first time in a decade. Zinc is essential for rustproofing steel and is used in a variety of infrastructures. It's also used to produce batteries, fertilizers, paints, plastics, cosmetics and multivitamins. The International Zinc Association estimates that zinc could save the world over $300 billion annually in direct corrosion costs and another $300 billion annually in indirect costs. Zinc is an invaluable base metal and a strategic priority for many industries. Disclaimer

Blue Moon Zinc Corp. (TSX.V: MOON) (OTC: BMOOF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Blue Moon Zinc Corp. (BMOOF). Today, Blue Moon Zinc Corp. closed trading at $0.044, up 25.00%, on 1,000 volume. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 30 days is 60,376 and its 52-week low/high is $0.008/$0.087.

Blue Moon Zinc Corp. (TSX.V: MOON) (OTC: BMOOF), a mineral exploration company, is focused on developing its advanced-stage, wholly owned Blue Moon zinc project in central California. The project sits within Mariposa County, an area of active mines and exploration projects since it was part of the California gold rush era. Blue Moon's 525 acres of mineral rights are assigned to patented and unpatented claims accessible by a gravel road off a nearby highway with main utility lines nearby.

The Blue Moon deposit is one of many located in the Foothills Massive Sulphide Belt in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. The property has a long history of exploration and saw small-scale mining during World War II. The current project, to be mined by underground methods, contains an estimated 3.70 million tons with a grade of 8.33% zinc equivalent for approximately 377 million pounds of zinc in the indicated category and another 4.09 million tons with a grade of 7.84% zinc equivalence for approximately 395 pounds of zinc in the inferred category. Significant bi-products of copper, silver and gold are also indicated. The deposit is open at depth and along strike with a high likelihood of expansion.

Current spot prices for zinc is approximately $1.40 per pound, which increases the potential returns of the Blue Moon project.

The historical database shows extensive plans to put the Blue Moon project into production, including several scoping and optimization studies. Past environmental work performed, along with an historical permit and reclamation plan approved for certain underground development, highlights past local county support for the project. These historical studies and permits are expected to help fast track the project's progress as they form an excellent base for the upcoming Preliminary Economic Assessment and later feasibility study.

Among the significant historical studies conducted is a 1998 metallurgical report that shows recovery rates of 95 percent for zinc and lead, 93 percent for copper, 65 percent for silver and 70 percent for gold (http://nnw.fm/U1ckE). The report indicates that simple processing methods will produce premium concentrates with easy separation of the economic minerals.

Blue Moon CEO Patrick McGrath, who has 20 years of experience in financing and executive roles in the junior mining public sector, is joined by a management team with successful track records in leading and participating in significant mineral discoveries with development-stage mining companies. The Blue Moon team also includes a member who permitted and built the Soledad mine in southern California in 2016 and a member who re-started the Mesquite mine in southern California. Local knowledge and know-how is key. The company also plans to engage a recognized third-party engineering firm to prepare a preliminary economic assessment report, expected for release in the first quarter of 2018, to demonstrate the economic viability of the Blue Moon mineral resources.

Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF). Today, Algae Dynamics Corp. closed trading at $0.12, up 9.09%, on 3,566 volume. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 30 days is 4,705 and its 52-week low/high is $0.0001/$0.62.

Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF) is focused on developing proprietary research and products involving botanical oils derived from cannabis and algae.

The original core of the company's product development strategy was the extraction of Omega-3 fatty acids from certain strains of algae with high concentrations of DHA to create various nutraceutical products. As a result of the many demonstrated health benefits of other botanical oils, most notably cannabis oil, Algae Dynamics developed a strategy aimed at developing products that combined the health benefits of algae and cannabis oils. Capitalizing on the burgeoning demand for cannabis oil and other smoke-free alternatives to marijuana consumption will help support ongoing initiatives to create and market research-driven product formulations.

Although the company is publicly traded in the U.S., business is conducted in Canada with no exposure to U.S. federal regulation involving cannabis. The Canadian cannabis oil extraction marketplace is projected to grow from C$1 million in 2015 to C$1.7 billion in 2020, which is more than a 1,000-fold increase. With the Government of Canada indicating a target date for full legalization on or before July 2018, numerous opportunities for sales in extracts and oils will open up very soon.

Using Colorado as a comparable example, a study performed by Mackie Research Capital found that 45% of dried marijuana users in the state would eventually convert to marijuana extracts and oils. This is because most consumers taking cannabis for medical purposes are increasingly looking for delivery systems that do not involve smoking marijuana. The market's attractiveness can be further realized when considering that the Canada's licensed producer marketplace is far less competitive with 45 current licensed producers for the whole country vs. 624 licensed cultivators in Colorado.

Collaborating with prominent Canadian universities is a core part of the Algae Dynamics' plan to bolster cannabis extraction expertise, develop premium products and add to its portfolio of intellectual property. Through its agreements with the University of Waterloo and the University of Western Ontario, the company is focusing primarily on the use of extracts from cannabis oil and algae oil in the context of cancer as well as the development of new pharmacotherapies for mental health.

Near-term goals include expanding research and development work with existing and new Canadian universities, securing supply/service agreements with licensed producers, and submitting an application to Health Canada to become a licensed producer of medical marijuana and ultimately have a license to sell products derived from cannabinoids. Algae Dynamics also owns a proprietary technology for the cultivation of low cost, highly pure algae biomass, which will be developed as a vertical integration strategy in the future to support the need to source algae oil for research-driven product formulations. The management team leading these initiatives has nearly a century of beneficial experience spanning from management and process experience to successful fund raising and commercialization.

As part of its key objective to be the #1 research Canadian cannabis oil research-driven product formulator, the company has also formed a strong team of scientific and strategic advisors that complement ongoing R&D relationships and initiatives. Individuals who support the company's initiatives include Dr. Jonathan Blay PhD, FRSB, FIBMS, Csci, CBiol, who performs research and product development on cannabis oil and its constituents in the context of colorectum, pancreas, breast and prostate cancers; and Dr. Steven Laviolette, BSc, PhD, who performs research and product development on cannabis oil and its constituents in the context of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and schizophrenia.

With such a strong foundation laid in the areas being pursued, Algae Dynamics is well positioned to execute on its carefully developed business plan to fast-track to revenue growth while having a longer-term strategy to build a sustainable enterprise-building opportunity in a rapidly expanding market.

Patriot One Technologies, Inc. (TSX.V:PAT) (OTCQB:PTOTF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Patriot One Technologies, Inc. (PTOTF). Today, Patriot One Technologies, Inc. closed trading at $1.1084, up 2.63%, on 95,661 volume. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 30 days is 336,488, and its 52-week low/high is $0.4665/$1.54.

Patriot One Technologies, Inc. (TSX.V: PAT) (OTCQB: PTOTF) is leveraging seven years of development to create powerful technologies that mitigate security risks by detecting concealed weapons via novel radar technology.

Developed through a NATO-funded project at McMaster University, Patriot One's disruptive NForce CMR1000 technology is the first cost-effective solution available for active shooter prevention, the need for which is evidenced by an increasing number of active shooter events in the United States and worldwide.

A recent study that surveyed data going back as far as 1966 demonstrates that there have been significantly more mass shootings in the U.S. than any other country for decades. Statistics for the 46-year period shows that even though America only holds 5% of the world's population, it took count of 31% of all public mass shootings. According to the FBI, there were an astounding 160 incidents from 2000 to 2013 that resulted in 486 people killed and 557 wounded. In years 2014 and 2015, there were nearly six times as many incidents compared to 2000 and 2001. The disturbing trend shows that there will be increasingly more incidents if better preventative measures aren't taken.

Patriot One's patent-pending solution to this alarming progression enables stand-off detection, even on moving targets, with a "cognitive" ability to learn and identify new threats once deployed. The product is not intended to threaten the constitutional rights of legal gun carriers, and it is also void of privacy and health concerns of traditional detection technologies, which require subject compliance, present false positives, and are often slow, inefficient and costly.

In contrast, Patriot One's technology is small in size and can be "covertly" placed in a doorway or hallway to prevent planned attacks in public places like schools, concerts, stadiums, banks, airports, offices, hospitals, shopping centers and other facilities for which there are concerns. With this method of deployment, there is no subject compliance requirement. In addition, because an image of the target is not generated, there are also no privacy concerns. Detection is real-time and entirely computer-based, which means there is no need for human operators to alert security. This eliminates the safety concerns of a would-be operator, reduces the expense of a human operator, and enables overall accuracy of 93%.

The technology is designed to identify if someone is carrying a gun, knife, suicide vest, etc., by analyzing metal content and relating it to a database of known weapon signatures. Patriot One believes the widespread use of this detection technology could act as an effective deterrent, thereby diminishing the epidemic phenomena of active shooters across the nation and around the world.

The company is guided by a team of experts in the areas of high-frequency electromagnetics, counter-terrorism, conflict resolution, government/corporate interface, sensor development, proactive security and business development. Senior Management has partnered with, among other affiliates, Ridge Global, which was founded by recently appointed advisory board member Tom Ridge, the first head of the Department of Homeland Security, first U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, and 43rd governor of Pennsylvania.

Along with its partners, Patriot One is addressing global concerns of active shooting events and other violent terrorist attacks. The key is to short-circuit the event through effective prevention technologies and security protocols. Disclaimer

LottoGopher Holdings Inc. (OTCQB:LTTGF) (CSE:LOTO) (FRA:2LG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight LottoGopher Holdings Inc. (LTTGF). Today, LottoGopher Holdings Inc. closed trading at $0.164, up 1.42%, on 119,650 volume. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 30 days is 147,610 and its 52-week low/high is $0.15/$0.50.

LottoGopher Holdings Inc. (LTTGF) is a new lottery messenger service that provides its subscribers with the security of ordering and managing the legal purchase of state lottery tickets online using debit and credit cards. LottoGopher makes it simple for users to keep track of tickets and winnings. Members have exclusive access to strategies, alerts, lottery news and can play alone with a single ticket or join online public or private groups to pool winnings.

LottoGopher is transforming the lottery buying experience, which has historically meant taking the time and spending the gas money to drive to a retail location, then stand in line to buy via cash only and redeem tickets. LottoGopher's uniquely online messenger service streamlines the experience of taking a shot at the lottery and makes it much more convenient and access to electronic payment, otherwise not permitted in CA. While only California residents at this time can play Mega Millions, SuperLotto Plus and Powerball through LottoGopher.com, expansion plans are in the works to allow internet-savvy residents in 22 other states with legal lotteries to have the same advantages of purchasing tickets online.

LottoGopher also enjoys a strategic business relationship with Lottoland, ranked in the Financial Times' FT1000 Report as one of Britain's Top 30 fastest growing companies and as the second ranked gaming company in Europe. Since launching in 2013, Lottoland has rapidly become a world leader in the online lottery sector with nearly $357 million (U.S. dollars) in annual sales.

LottoGopher's currently integrated support systems include a mobile friendly platform; automated email follow-up system to capture, score and remarket to email address leads; social media listening and outreach; utilization of Google Analytics tools; one-time promotional offers across multiple platforms; main and backup credit card processing accounts; and focus on customer service.

Customers of LottoGopher pay a subscription fee to use the service, much like Netflix, Amazon Prime or Dollar Shave Club. After selecting their subscription plan, users pay the same price per ticket as if purchasing from a retail, brick-and-mortar location. LottoGopher's team then secures the selected tickets from a lottery retailer partner. User account balances are updated after a drawing, which makes it impossible for a member to "lose" a winning ticket.

The company's target market includes the 80 million U.S. consumers already buying lottery tickets who typically purchase products online. Offering a far more convenient way to play the lottery via an intuitive platform, LottoGopher is well positioned to disrupt this multi-billion dollar industry. Disclaimer

HighCom Global Security, Inc. (HCGS)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight HighCom Global Security, Inc. (HCGS). Today, HighCom Global Security, Inc. closed trading at $0.02, even for the day, on 503,058 volume. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 30 days is 51,418 and its 52-week low/high is $0.006/$0.10.

HighCom Global Security, Inc. (HCGS) is a manufacturer and distributor of protective products for military and law enforcement personnel. The Corporation operates under two segments, BlastGard Defense Group and Highcom Security.

BlastGard is a blast mitigation specialist with proprietary material proven to effectively mitigate blasts and suppress fires resulting from explosions. The company's patented BlastWrap® technology acts as a "virtual tent" to effectively mitigate blast effects and suppress post-blast fires. This unique technology works by triggering physical and chemical processes to dissipate blast energy, thereby reducing the aftermath of acoustic and shock waves, peak overpressure, reflected peak overpressure, impulse and afterburn. The remaining, significantly reduced energy is transmitted at a slower, more sustainable level. Notably, BlastWrap does not dispense chemical extinguishants; uses neither alarms, sensors, nor an activation system; and is nontoxic and ecologically friendly.

Similarly, the company's BlastGard MTR trash receptacles dramatically reduce lethal threats posed by the detonation of an improvised explosive device (IED). Equipped with Triple Wall Technology, BlastGard MTR mitigates primary fragments, secondary fragments, mechanical effects (shock/blast pressure) and thermal effects (contact and radiation burn) from the fireball, after-burn and resultant post-blast fires.

BlastGard's primary market focus lies on providing blast effects mitigation solutions for customers operating in the commercial sector, military, law enforcement and government agencies. With a vision of being recognized as the leading provider of environmentally responsible solutions to protect lives and structures from the hazards associated with fire and explosions, the company is capable of addressing a wide array of industry applications spanning from fire suppression for naval vessels and merchant ships to protection of buildings against vehicle bombs.

This vision is supported by the ban of Halon extinguishing agents, as outlined in the Montreal protocol, which effectively establishes BlastWrap® as the only blast and fire suppression means available for most applications, including adaptation for underwater use.

The company's position at the head of the blast suppression market has helped BlastGard attain a number of government awards, including designation of its BlastWrap® product as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology and placement on the "Approved Products List for Homeland Security." This designation was extended in early 2017, meaning that BlastWrap® is approved for use by the Department of Homeland Security under the SAFETY Act until November 2021.

HighCom Security, develops, tests, manufactures and distributes body armor and personal protective equipment, including more than two dozen NIJ (National Institute of Justice) compliant hard and soft armor products. Highcom Security has a 20-year history of producing quality armor with no operational failures and no recalls of its American made products.

Highcom Security was founded in 1997 and has produced close to 1 million pieces of armor for the Global community. The company is ISO 9001:2008 certified and the first company in the world to be BA 9000:2012 certified compliant.

For the past decade, Highcom Security has also been able to offer some of the largest armor manufacturers with private label/OEM hard armor solutions for end use by military and law enforcement agencies globally, a market reach obtained because of the company's reputation for innovative technology, exceptional customer service and superior quality performance.
