Lewes, Delaware (PRUnderground) July 28th, 2014

Pangaea Services Inc. is proud to announce a strategic relationship with Mitco Global.  Pangaea Services launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo on July 22nd for its product, The Defender, which is a new and revolutionary device in the smart personal protection industry.  Mitco Global contributed $100,000 towards the campaign for The Defender.  Mitco will receive over 1,000 units of The Defender as one of the first distributors with access to the world’s first smart personal protection system.  Mitco will work with Pangaea Services to expand distribution and fulfill eCommerce orders once The Defender is available on

Mitco Global is a third-party logistics (3PL) company that employs innovative supply chain solutions for end-to-end fulfillment services. Mitco Global has been working with Pangaea Services for two years to develop the backend and supply chain to handle the anticipated demand for The Defender.

Mitco President, Kevin May, said, “We saw the potential with The Defender immediately and wanted to be involved as more than a distributor.   Having two daughters in college, their personal security is my greatest concern.  With the increasing amount of crime on college campuses throughout the country, there is a distinct need for personal protection at this level.    The Defender reverses the role of the victim and turns the tables on the offender instantly.  I feel this product greatly reduces the chances of a perpetrator from succeeding, and also may even deter a potential perpetrator from deciding to commit a crime. I believe that all women on college campuses should have this device, and as a father, I would like to believe that all parents would want their college kids to have one.  Mitco has been looking for the right opportunity to launch its product distribution services.  Seeing the incredible value of The Defender, we felt this was the right time to launch it and go to market. This is the first time we have ever supported a crowdfunding campaign and we are excited to be a part of The Defender’s launch. We look forward to being one of the first distributors to offer The Defender to our clients.”

Ryan McManus, Co-Founder / Marketing Direction, says of the relationship, “We are thrilled to have Mitco as a strategic partner. We have been working with them to setup our online ordering and fulfillment process and they have been true partners every step of the way. Mitco had the vision to see how crowdfunding fit into our business plan and their support will help us raise even more funds to finalize manufacturing.”

The Defender deters a prospective criminal with a vast array of self-defense features, including a 24/7 monitoring service, mobile app, and the highest concentration of pepper spray allowed by law.  The Defender provides confidence and peace of mind, taking crime prevention to the next level.

The Defender’s smart phone app connects via Bluetooth with The Defender device.  The Defender features a camera, oscillating flash, siren and pepper spray all-in-one and connects with the 24/7 alert monitoring service through the smart phone app.  The Defender goes into action instantaneously with one button.

The strategic relationship between Mitco Global and Pangaea Services is set to take this device into the mainstream consumer market. McManus says of the relationship, “Internet-connected devices are enhancing all aspects of our lives and we have brought this connectivity to personal safety. The Defender sets a new standard in self-defense and we are excited to be launching on IndieGogo with the support of Mitco Global.”
