About Us

ATEK IS ABOUT SAVING LIVES

ATEK Defense Systems, founded in 2017, has been working to provide the world with the most efficient, lightest, and strongest armored solutions on the market. To accomplish this they have worked with award winning engineers to develop materials and technologies to make their armor inch for inch half the weight or twice as strong as traditional Kevlar-based armors. Their Protek and Graphtek solutions are a game changer. ATEK manufactures NIJ certified high-performance graphene based ProTek, GraphTek, and Nano-panel ballistic materials. This nano-technology is 30 times stronger than Kevlar and 3X the tensile strength of steel.
 
ATEK is a Utah-based company that is now operating in 3 world offices including a facility in Accra Ghana, and another in Ankara Turkey. Each year since its founding, ATEK has enjoyed an average compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35% and is looking forward to its best years to come. We care deeply about the lives our products are made to protect, and feel it is our responsibility to build the best and safest products possible.
