Columbia is the state capital and second largest city in South Carolina. It is also home to Fort Jackson, the largest United States Army installation for basic combat training. It is the largest and most active entry training center in the U.S. Army, training around 50% of all soldiers entering the army each year. The fort’s primary mission is to provide the Army with new soldiers. Over 30,000 potential soldiers attend basic training each year, and 8,000 advanced soldiers train at Fort Jackson annually.

Polymershapes is a trusted name in plastics, and has been for over seventy years. With a stocking facility in the area, we’re proud to be a premier provider of Columbia plastics. Although our high-quality products are used in a variety of industries, we also specialize in creating products for defense.

Armored Vehicles

Whether used by military forces, cash-in-transit companies or corporations, armored vehicles have become one of the most demanding applications for plastics. The most important factor in reaching optimal performance is actually armored glazing for windows, as its critical for both protection and visibility. Windows are required to be resilient enough to stand up to blasts, direct fire and harsh environments, while still allowing occupants to see clearly. At Polymershapes, we can provide a range of products engineered specifically to provide excellent optimal quality, despite thick laminations and low visibility.
