“HighCom is XTEK Group’s global armour brand, and it is the foundation of the Group’s Ballistics Division. By leveraging the Group’s advanced manufacturing capabilities in Adelaide, South Australia, and in Columbus, Ohio, in the US, we were able to immediately respond to and fill this order for the urgent supply of $2.75 million of specialist ballistic products,” Scott Basham, chief executive of XTEK Group, said.

“It is a great demonstration of the Group’s capabilities to support our customers with little to no notice to meet their urgent operational requirements.”

The order comes off the back of growing international demand for the company’s ballistic products.

Last October, XTEK’s wholly-owned US subsidiary HighCom Armor Solutions has received a US$1.1 million ($1.5 million) purchase order from an undisclosed US federal government department for the delivery of specialist ballistic armour products.

The company is expected to leverage its experience producing ultra-light high-performance hard armour plates and ballistic helmets from its manufacturing facilities in Columbus and Adelaide.

XTEK is scheduled to deliver the equipment over the second and third quarters of the 2022 financial year.
