Who we are

For over 30 years, we have been successfully implementing projects for the automotive industry and are today one of the leading manufacturers of armored vehicles in the fields of development and manufacture. WELP Armouring develops and produces customised and armoured vehicles to the very highest automotive production standards and the highest ballistic levels. Our certified bulletproof portfolio for sales includes SUVs, pick-ups, transporter vans and commercial vehicles for every conceivable mission throughout the world.

Customised, one-of-a-kind vehicles or exclusive limited editions from German vehicle manufacturers – whatever the requirements are, the armouring is always produced using certified, high-quality ballistic materials and monitored by an efficient quality management system. All of our armoured vehicles are tested by Germany’s ballistic testing agency, the Beschussamt, in a variety of situations under the toughest imaginable conditions and are successfully certified. WELP Armouring vehicles come with a safe and dependable driving dynamics package that has earned the approval of Germany’s TÜV Nord vehicle inspection organisation. Our armoured vehicles operate in every corner of the world. They are ideally equipped and therefore also suited for extreme road and climate conditions.

Our armoured vehicles are backed up with a customer service, technical training courses, driver training, and spare parts supplies directly at the place of deployment. Our customers include aid agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), European agencies and presidents.

We offer the following armoured vehicle models:
Armored and bulletproof Toyota Land Cruiser 200, 76, 78, 79, Lexus LX570, Nissan Patrol Y62, Mercedes Benz Sprinter and many more.
