Security Forum 2017 – Concepts for Domestic and Foreign Security
WELP Armouring held its inaugural Security Forum in WilkauHaßlau on 11 May 2017 titled “Concepts for Domestic and Foreign Security”, which focused on the most recent threat levels in Europe.
The event centred on tactical armoured police vehicles from WELP Armouring as well as speeches on a variety of security topics, such as the latest ballistic material technologies, risk monitoring in areas of conflict, the challenges posed by virtual detonations on security vehicles, and much more. The range of activities also included panel discussions, tours of the company, live demonstrations and intensive demandbased talks.
Over 100 guests from government agencies, embassies, representatives from the armoured vehicle departments of car makers (OEMs) and international security representatives were in attendance. The event’s exhibitors included Klöckner Stahl, GKN, Enginox, Hutchinson, Isoclima, Udo Röck, Daimler Trucks, Audi AG, NH Power, Vela Performance and Pewag. Audi AG showed the armoured Audi A8 L Security, for example, and Daimler Trucks the armoured Mercedes Benz Zetros, while WELP Armouring exhibited the new “F2-TLC700-Toyota Land Cruiser 200” police vehicle.
Other security solutions were also on display, such as the innovative mobile surveillance tower presented by Udo Röck. The aim of this device is to secure border crossings and provide security at major events. The event was also an opportunity to tour the company and then witness a shooting display at the in-house firing range.
