Pangaea Services Inc. and Mace Security International, Inc. are proud to announce a strategic relationship. Pangaea Services has selected Mace Brand pepper spray to be featured inside The Defender and Mace Security International has preordered over 1,000 units of The Defender that will be distributed through Mace Brand Retailers.

The Defender is the first smart personal protection system to provide identification, alert, defense, and response in a single device. The Defender will provide the most advanced and comprehensive personal security system.
To introduce The Defender, Pangaea Services turned to crowdfunding website, Indiegogo.com, for a campaign that began on July 22nd. The Defender has raised over $210,000 in less than four days on Indiegogo.com by offering contributors the opportunity to receive the first units made and even 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 strategic relationship with Mace is about more than pepper spray. When the team at Mace approached us, we were met with an enthusiasm for technology and they quickly understood how The Defender’s technology can empower the individual in the personal security arena. Pangaea Services’ mission for revolutionizing personal security with smart self-defense solutions easily aligns with Mace’s track record and experience since 1970 in the personal defense, safety and electronic security products industry.” Regarding the crowdfunding campaign, McManus said, “Their contribution to our campaign is just the beginning of a great relationship and will be giving our customers a known and trusted name in 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.
Contributions of $179 will receive a perk that includes 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 crowdfunding campaign and be among the first to carry The Defender, visit http://igg.me/at/theDefender
