COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- www.t3motion.com - T3 Motion, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: TTTM) T3 Motion, Inc. today announced that the Kuwaiti Ministry of the Interior has placed additional orders bringing the total deployment in Kuwait to $448,000 for T3 Electric Stand-up Vehicles (ESV). The initial shipments have been delivered to the Kuwaiti Ministry of Interior to use for airport security and coastal patrols.
"The use of T3 ESVs for Kuwaiti airport homeland security initiatives is just the first step in how T3 Motion will help to bring Kuwait to the cutting edge of modern security," stated Ki Nam, T3 Motion CEO. "As nations around the world modernize their security initiatives to meet the requirements of evolving technologies, many nations are increasingly taking advantage of T3 ESV's strong command presence and iconic design for security alternatives. We look forward to this relationship with Kuwait and welcome it as a strong and lasting partnership."
The Ministry of Interior unveiled their fleet of T3 ESVs at the 2011 Police Academy graduation ceremony, replacing the traditional horseback riders for the ceremony. The Emir of Kuwait as well as other government and security officials were in attendance at the ceremony.
The orders were placed through distributor A&M Ltd. In 2010, T3 Motion and A&M Ltd. executives signed a distribution agreement appointing A&M as the exclusive distributor of the T3 Series ESV in Kuwait. A&M is a long-standing and respected company in Kuwait with an impressive government and private clientele and will provide all operator training and technical support for customers throughout the region. Half of the purchased T3 ESVs have been delivered to Kuwait. The other half are due to be shipped in coming weeks.
This agreement further solidifies T3 Motion's presence in the Middle East, with contractual agreements in Qatar, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. T3 ESVs will be featured at the Gulf Defense Show in Kuwait this December.
