Nov. 11 (Bloomberg) --- Armoring your vehicle is the latest craze among the uber-wealthy. Texas Armoring in San Antonio is the biggest private vehicle armoring company in the world, protecting celebs like T.I., Mel B and Steven Segal. They produce about 200 vehicles a year and project that number to double in the next five years do to a spike in demand in the U.S. CEO Trent Kimbell tells Bloomberg what it takes to keep this niche business on the top of the vehicle security market.

What if the driver shoots you?
The demand in the US is booming. As it should in a "civilized" society.

Most people dont get shot inside their cars. It’s walking on the street, a mall, sitting in a movie theater or at work/school.

I love having an armored SUV. The problem is that once you get rid of it to get a new one, the armoring is worth nothing, you can only sell the car for as much as 10% more than its original value.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Military left thousands of MRAP vehicles overseas simply because they didn't want to pay to ship them back to the USA. Costs about $12 grand to ship one back, cost between $600 grand and $1 million to build each one. You paid for them, but you can't buy them back.

Siriyak Cr (1 year ago)
where there is a weapon there is crime example American/Russian/Afghanistan/Iran/Iraq/Pakistan so.on in India there no such weapon shops so that people don't try kill other or themselves like Batman premier so here they don't need such car ultimately they have come out of car and even presidents got killed even though they had such car

GunnerSol (1 year ago)
Purplesasquatch don't bother this guy is an idiot that even a 5th grader would understand economics better. with a biz like this there can't be such a huge profit, it's just enough but not over the top as you think
Twisted Soul (1 year ago)
Purplesasquatch did u listen to him he said high demand I hope u understand what's high demand mean
Bulby (1 year ago)
I already explained it but you won't listen, it's not likely a company buying cars and rebuilding them with armor and James Bond type features has high profit margins. The market is small, the materials and labor are expensive, and they also have to maintain a front.
