A new American subsidiary – KarabloK USA – has been set up to run the licensing of the blast-proof, crash-proof security barrier.
The company will deal with all aspects of licensing for the manufacture, sale and installation of product in North America and is a subsidiary of KarabloK Holdings, based in the UK.
The innovative precast concrete system was launched at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas in February.
It has applications in both the military and security sectors as an anti-terrorist barrier and also in industry to protect personnel and property from explosions.
KarabloK director Gareth Neale said: “We are currently in negotiations with several precast manufacturers and suppliers in different parts of America and the establishment of KarabloK USA helps create the legal structure to enable the licensing of the product to run smoothly.”
