Scott Basham, XTEK Group CEO, said,

Our HighCom Armor team have done a truly amazing job of sourcing, building, managing, and shipping this transformational order for the XTEK Group.

The feedback we have had, as a result of the great work our HighCom team has undertaken for this very important international customer to produce and ship the more than 120,000 high quality, life-saving personal ballistic protective products included in this order, has been nothing short of glowing.

On the back of having supplied this massive order so smoothly for them, and in record time, we believe from their feedback, that we are uniquely positioned to assist them over the coming weeks and months to fulfill any additional orders they may have for life-saving body armour and ballistic helmets.

In addition to the ongoing engagement we have with this customer, we continue to progress many other large order opportunities with customers spread right across Central and Eastern Europe.”
