Press Release: San Antonio's Texas Armoring Corporation Stars in TLC's Newest Reality Show: "FAMILY ARMOR"

AN ANTONIO—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Texas Armoring Corporation (TAC), the world leader in lightweight armored passenger vehicles and bulletproof cars, announced today that it has been cast in TLC's newest reality TV special entitled, "FAMILY ARMOR." The show, which has been carefully paired with network favorites like "Street Customs" and "American Chopper," has been described by industry insiders as "the ultimate guy show" and will offer audiences an entertaining mix of cars, guns, and gadgets that would rival any 007 James Bond film.

President and CEO of TAC Trent Kimball commented, "‘FAMILY ARMOR' will give the world a bird's-eye view of our business, our family, and our faith. TLC is a family-oriented network, and we're excited to partner with a group that will reflect well on our work, community, and personal lives."

Kimball, who is an Alamo City native, started Texas Armoring Corporation in the 1990s while in his early twenties to help meet the protection requirements of celebrities, heads-of-state, business owners, and VIPs in the United States and throughout the world. Since that time, the business has grown to receive worldwide recognition as a quality leader in the armoring industry. Kimball currently resides in Northern San Antonio with his wife and six children and manages business operations at TAC alongside his brother-in-law, Jason Forston.

Forston, Executive Vice President of TAC, said of the show, "Without a doubt, ‘FAMILY ARMOR' will be an amazing piece of television. It works on so many angles - while guys will love the cars and explosions, it's also a clean and entertaining show that the entire family will enjoy."

The show will follow Kimball and Forston as they work together to "run a cutting-edge vehicle bulletproofing business in Texas while juggling fatherhood and faith."

Kimball concluded, "‘FAMILY ARMOR' will air on Thursday, November 19th after ‘American Chopper' at 10/9c. Check your local listings and be sure to set your DVRs - it's something you, your friends, and family definitely won't want to miss!"

About TLC's "FAMILY ARMOR" (Show Description)
Deep in the heart of San Antonio, Texas Armoring Corporation (TAC) turns everyday cars into bulletproofed, bomb-resistant, gadget-filled fortresses, equipped with cutting-edge getaway gizmos and futuristic protective devices that rival those of any 007 James Bond film. Brand new cars direct from the dealer are torn apart piece-by-piece and then rebuilt - stronger, safer, smarter, and sexier. Led by charismatic Trent Kimball and his savvy brother-in-law, Jason Forston, TAC is aided and abetted by a motley crew of expert engineers. When not at the factory, Trent is the father of six rowdy children and married to his live-wire of a wife, Courtney. Jason and his lovable wife, Lacy, are first-time parents to a rambunctious one-year-old. Trent and Jason devote their time to work, family and faith . . . and along the way they get to shoot guns and blow things up all in the name of "business."

"FAMILY ARMOR" is produced by STILETTO Television for TLC. Executive Producers for STILETTO Television are Mark Grove, Garry Kief, Troy Queen and Tim Warren.

I have been inside this place. It's awesome to say the least to see all the armor plate and bullet proof glass.

I have never seen so many Mercedes SUV's in one place.
