Advanced Glass Technology forms new partnership in India

In response to demand for improved glass protection from Embassies, Non-Governmental Organisations and businesses in India, a specialist security consultancy in Mumbai has joined forces with London based protective glazing experts, Advanced Glass Technology (AGT).

The new alliance means that DEFCON ISC has become the first authorised installer in India for AGT’s ISO-approved anti-shatter blast containment film, ‘Glass Shield’.

A subsidiary of the property and estate management company, Reshamwala Group, DEFCON ISC provides bespoke defence and security consultancy to organisations seeking to mitigate risk to personnel, buildings and vehicles in the event of a natural disaster, civil unrest or a terrorist attack.

The appointment of DEFCON ISC is the first partnership for AGT in India and part of an expanding overseas operation that also includes agreements with specialist security agencies in the Middle East.

In addition to the supply of ‘Glass Shield’, AGT will also provide DEFCON ISC with access to its range of specialist anchoring and edge retention systems for enhanced levels of protection, according to a client’s requirements.

Commenting on the new partnership, Martin Westney, Managing Director, Advanced Glass Technology, said:

“Organisations and businesses in major cities across the world are increasingly recognising the importance of building protection and risk mitigation to personnel. We are pleased to be able to take our expertise into new markets and this new partnership with DEFCON ISC is one we hope will develop in the months and years ahead.”

Shonak Reshamwala, President of Reshamwala Group and DEFCON ISC, said:

“This new agreement with AGT will strengthen our proposition to existing and prospective clients and provides additional solutions that we can recommend to them in the interest of improving their security.”



Notes to Editors:

Established in 2009, AGT was formed as a complementary business to Pentagon London, one of the UK’s most recognised providers of automotive window tinting and anti-shatter security film.

With security films starting at a thickness of 50 microns up to 450 microns, the multi-laminate polyester membrane can be applied to any glass surface. It is bonded with an aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive system resulting in any broken glass adhering to the film.

AGT and Pentagon London are wholly owned by Martin Westney and Simon Kendall, who have more than 40 years of experience within the automotive and glazing sectors.
