XTEK Limited’s HighCom Armor Solutions has completed the manufacturing and delivery of more than 20,000 individual items for specialist ballistic protection equipment for a US federal government agency. 

The $3.5 million purchase order puts XTEK on track to deliver a record result of more than $47 million for the first half of fiscal year 2022. 

In an ASX announcement, XTEK Group CEO Scott Basham said the delivery will enable the US agency to receive and deploy their new advanced ballistic protection equipment much earlier, keeping their officers safer and saving more lives sooner than originally expected. 

“The HighCom team has built, packed, and shipped this important order valued at A$3.5m, a full month in advance of expectations,” Basham said. 

“HighCom’s ongoing and consistent ability to rapidly supply large orders of NIJ-certified and world-leading ballistic products from our Columbus, Ohio facility, to domestic locations around the United States, and to far-flung international destinations all around the world, is exactly what gives our customers such deep confidence in our HighCom brand and business.”
