Pangaea Services, Inc. and Mace Security International, Inc. are proud to announce a strategic partnership. Pangaea Services has selected Mace® Brand Pepper Spray to be featured inside The Defender, and Mace Security International Inc. has preordered over 1,000 units of The Defender that will be distributed through Mace® Brand distribution and marketing channels. Mace® Brand Pepper Spray is the market leader with 52% market share and brand recognition of 85% in North America. The Defender is the first smart personal protection system to provide identification, alert, defense, and response in a single device. Together, Mace® Brand and The Defender will provide the most advanced and comprehensive personal security system.

To introduce The Defender, Pangaea Services turned to crowd funding website, Indiegogo.com, for a campaign that began on July 22nd. The Defender has raised over $212,000 in less than six days on Indiegogo.com by offering contributors the opportunity to receive the first units made and be part of the beta development team. Mace Security International contributed $100,000 towards the campaign.

Mace Security International President and CEO John McCann said regarding the partnership, “Mace Security International Inc. is partnering with The Defender because of the hard work, innovation and drive that Mace® Brand saw in the product development work that went into The Defender product.”

Pangaea Services Co-Founder Ryan McManus said, “Our partnership with Mace® Brand is about more than pepper spray. The team at Mace® Brand approached us with enthusiasm for the innovative technology that Pangaea Services offered. Such technology helps Mace® Brand maintain its position as the leader in personal security. Our respective missions, to protect through smart self-defense solutions, were aligned, and we immediately began discussions on the many ways in which we could work together to revolutionize personal defense.” Regarding the partnership, McManus said, “Their contribution to our campaign is just the beginning of a great partnership, and we know we will be giving our customers the best pepper spray with Mace® Brand inside The Defender.”

The Defender will include Mace® Brand pepper spray inside, plus a test canister that allows users to test the device prior to carrying. The Defender provides “Everywhere Security” through a 24/7 monitoring service and deters a prospective criminal with a vast array of self-defense features. The Defender provides confidence and peace of mind, taking crime prevention to the next level.

A $179 contributor is entitled to receive The Defender with Mace® Brand Inside, a mobile app for iOS and Android, and 1 year of 24/7 monitoring service. To contribute to the crowd funding campaign and be among the first to carry The Defender, visit http://igg.me/at/theDefender
