About us

We are the original developers of earth-filled barrier technology. Since 1991 our products have been deployed in the most hostile parts of the world, saving countless lives and billions of dollars worth of mission critical assets.

We protect homes from nature’s fiercest storms; keeping emergency routes open, hospitals running and offering temporary housing for those displaced by conflict or natural disaster. Rapidly deployable and readily available; we invest in solutions to reduce logistical burdens when faced with an emergency situation. 

HESCO barriers began with the idea of one man: Jimi Heselden. He needed to protect a property that faced being destroyed by fierce storms on the coast of North Yorkshire, UK, so he developed a wire-mesh gabion system that allowed him to construct the protective wall that saved his family home. This innovation would become the HESCO Concertainer Unit, acknowledged as the most significant development in field fortification since WWII.


Hesco RAID is the result of 15 years of design and engineering, to reinvent a significant life-saving product used by the military, to save even more.

Halving transportation requirements, minimizing the manpower needed to successfully deploy, and providing cover at a speed never seen before.

RAID raises personnel protection to a new level, facing the evolving changes of overseas conflict, border security, and perimeter protection, head-on.
