About us

CRD Protection AB was founded in the year of 2008 to commercialize the product TACRION® based on very positive results from initial trials by the Swedish Armed Forces. TACRION® was invented by CRD Protection ABs founder, Mr Carl-Johan Ridderstad, as a response to an identified need for security forces to utilize cordoning as a tactical tool. Traditional riot fences require significant time and effort for redeployment and are often used as fixed installations for longer periods of time for planned operations. TACRION® disrupts this notion by offering a rapidly re-deployable cordoning capability with simplified logistics.

Today CRD Protections AB is an established and appreciated supplier of innovative and high-quality products to the defence, law enforcement and civil security sector. Our product portfolio includes crowd control and perimeter protection solutions engineered, manufactured and patented by CRD Protection AB. We are also exclusive reseller in the Nordic countries of third party products from; LRAD – long range acoustic devices, Revision – state of the art ACH helmets, eyewear and power solutions.

CRD Protection constantly develops, adopts and improves new ideas and technology to meet the changing customer needs. Since CRD was started we have strived to keep society and people safe together with our customers within governments, authorities and companies.
