XTEK absorbs body armour order

XTEK absorbs body armour order

October 12, 2023 Off By Rueben Hale

XTEK‘s Australian based ballistics division, HighCom, has received an order for thousands of high-performance body armours totalling $2.2 million.

The specialist armour is going to an undisclosed international customer during elevated geopolitical tensions worldwide.

“This new international order will see many thousands of our advanced high-performance body armour products rapidly dispatched from inventory to meet this customer’s urgent delivery priorities,” XTEK Group CEO Scott Basham said.

“In parallel with this order, we are also negotiating multiple similarly sized orders and some even bigger contracts, which, if received, could potentially see our entire finished goods inventory of body armour and helmets completely consumed and then see us potentially needing to ramp up our production lines back to similar levels as we did to supply our advanced lifesaving, high-performance ballistics protection products to Europe previously.

“Our policy of maintaining levels of resilience in our raw and finished goods inventories was put in place for this exact situation, and consequently, we believe we are very well placed to support the significant immediate and any sustained ongoing demand for equipment that may be required over the coming days, weeks, and months.”

Negotiations are underway to supply multiple large follow-on orders.
