Plasan North America (PNA) supports this reputation with a local, US-based, manufacturing capability providing comprehensive solutions for armor, composite, and commercial steel fabrication.
The close relationship between PNA and its parent company, Plasan Sasa, Ltd., allows a quick path for innovative Israeli technology to enter the US marketplace. The linkage between companies allows PNA reach back capability to the nearly 100 engineers and scientists working to solve the most challenging survivability problems.
