Barrier1, a North Carolina-based manufacturer of crash tested vehicle barriers, announced a master licensing agreement with Perimeter Protection Group of Germany to sell, distribute, and manufacture PPG’s complete line of security barriers and products.

“The United States and Canada have long been on our radar as the next areas for us to engage,” says Thorsten Grunwald, president of Perimeter Protection Group, in a statement. “We have looked at various plans and approaches, and we decided to align with Barrier1 because their new ownership and capitalization provide the tools to take on the task, and their professional team can be rapidly trained to sell, ship, install, maintain, and soon manufacture our products in the USA.”

“These best-in-class bollards, barriers, crash arms, gates, wedge barriers and road blockers have met and exceeded the highest crash testing standards in the U.S., the U.K., and Europe” added Mark Borto, president of Barrier1. “With this long-term exclusive relationship, we will be investing heavily across our company in order to bring these high security products to North America. This is a key element of our ongoing strategic growth and market leadership initiatives.”
