Mr Philippe Odouard, Managing Director of XTEK, commented:

“We have been busy working with the HighCom team to consolidate the two businesses and are pleased that it has been tremendously successful, with this product launch demonstrating that XTEK and HighCom are a fully integrated entity with a common portfolio of products.

“The three ballistic products launched are each focused towards an unmet demand in the US. The high quality and lightweight XTclave™ manufactured ballistic plates and helmets are best-in-class, and we are eager to introduce them into the American market. The soft armour for females demonstrates HighCom’s innovation and knowledge of the market who represent a growing portion of the countries front line protectors. We are very pleased to launch these products together and look forward to what will follow.”

XTEK will launch three products including a hard armour plate and a helmet produced with XTclave.

SHOT show is a prominent exhibition to present new products to law enforcement and military. HighCom’s brand and reputation will be leveraged to promote the three new products, as well as the demonstrations, marketing presentations and meetings with distributors and potential customers that will start at the show. This launch aligns with the completion of XTEK’s XTclave™ manufacturing facility, which is now being installed and will soon start undergoing final testing and validation. XTEK will soon have the capability to fulfil commercial quantity orders of its ballistic hard armour plates and helmets.
