XTEK fulfills urgent $2.75 million order for ballistic armour

ASX-listed composites technology company XTEK has announced the receipt and rapid filling of an urgent order of “specialist ballistic armour products” for an undisclosed customer, worth $2.75 million.

Few details other than the dollar value of the order and its urgency were given in the short statement on Monday, though group CEO Scott Basham, cited “the Group’s advanced manufacturing capabilities in Adelaide, South Australia, and in Columbus, Ohio” which allowed it to meet the customer’s request.

“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,” Basham added.

The company has a 100 per cent owned subsidiary in the US, HighCom Armor Solutions, the acquisition of which was announced in 2019.

XTEK designs and manufactures composite products in Australia via a team based in Canberra and Adelaide, with the latter site housing its patented XTClave high-pressure curing machines (pictured.) 

XTClave is used to produce lightweight composite products including armour inserts, helmets, and satellites. 

XTEK’s other operations include supply and sustainment of drones, drone mapping software, and explosive ordnance disposal robots.
