Since 9/11, the leading purchaser and implementer of vehicle barricade systems has been US Federal Government departments, a ranking of Delta Scientific customers discloses. Nuclear power plants, airports and universities are numbers four, seven and eight on Delta's list. Delta defines a system as one that consists of a single pumping unit that operates one or more barricades.
"The leading buyers of counter-terrorist vehicle barrier systems since 9/11 have been the US Navy, US Department of State and other Federal Buildings," reports Delta Scientific senior vice president, David Dickinson. "However, the Navy and State Department were already quite proactive before last September. The Navy was well into the planning stages for securing key facilities. After 9/11, they simply accelerated their program. Likewise, the Department of State has been upgrading their physical security since 1998. They have been purchasing barricade systems up to a year in advance to stage and transport barriers to their worldwide locations. This program continues to be ongoing and very well-planned."
Following nuclear power plants, Dickinson reports that the US Air Force and Army rank next. According to Dickinson, Delta and the Army are now working on a large number of installations around the world. By the end of the year, the Army will have dramatically moved up the list. "The numbers of orders from airports, colleges and universities, state capital buildings and other locations are also outstanding but still dwarfed by the massive implementations being done by the various Federal departments," explains Dickinson. "We have added facilities and tripled our manufacturing output since last September."
