HESCO products are an essential component of force protection materiel for the military engineer. However, HESCO products also play a vital role in several other markets, such as protecting the nation's critical infrastructure and security, for the protection of sensitive coastal environments from erosion and oil spills; for fighting rising waters in flood prone areas and providing humanitarian shelters.

Homeland Security

HESCO products have been widely and successfully used for force protection in conflicts from Bosnia to Afghanistan. Walls built from the units have been used around military camps, guard posts, hospitals, stores and key public buildings such as embassies and consulates.

Across the world, this success has prompted the use of Concertainer technology to protect sensitive civilian installations particularly at risk from hostile attack such as embassies, consulates, government buildings, and critical infrastructure facilities.

Two key products in our security portfolio are the HRSF (HESCO Redeployable Security Fence), and Concertainer units.

Mining, Oil & Gas

HESCO products have the versatility to provide solutions across many engineering projects and the innovative design of the Mil units are invaluable solutions for mining, oil and gas use across the globe.
