Holdfast Systems Company History


Holdfast Systems (Pty) Ltd was formed in 2006 with the objective of specialising in the development, design and manufacturing of blast protective apparel.

Born out of an original concept and with product development done by our sister company, Ballistic Body Armour, we realised that a highly specialised core focus was required in

  • EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal)/IEDD (Improvised Explosive Device Disposal) equipment
  • UXO (Unexploded Ordnance) disposal.

In 2017 Holdfast Systems opened a manufacturing facility in the US with a US partner and created Holdfast Systems North America, Inc. (HFSNA).

Headquartered in Saint Petersburg, Florida, the new US company can build all of the original Holdfast designs as well as those of Ballistic Body Armour (Pty) Ltd. So far, HFSNA has delivered hundreds of humanitarian de-mining vests, aprons, helmets and dozens of heavy EOD/bomb suits. HFSNA builds products that are not only Made in USA, they comply to the stringent requirements of the Berry Amendment to the Buy America Act.
