Montreal, QC, Canada – As with all operational militaries across the world, one of the major concerns is always lighter body armor for the active troops. For those who are not too familiar, Revision Military is an international forerunner in soldier protection solutions, and they have stepped up to fill the role of supplying Canadian Forces with new and improved armor.
The idea is for the troops to have ballistic plating that is both lighter in weight and still really sturdy. The Revision Military brand has been awarded a $9.5 million contract in order to make this happen. The products are expected to be distributed products in April of 2014, with the existing contract including 5 option years.
“This contract will be fulfilled at Revision’s Composite Centre of Excellence in Montreal, providing the DND with a Made-in-Canada solution. With significant investment in facility, machinery, equipment, and state-of-the-art ballistic testing laboratories, Revision has entered an exciting new phase of our growth strategy. We expect that this contract will be a springboard for gaining additional ballistic plate business from other advanced militaries in the coming months and years,”says Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision Military.
As a company that had started out manufacturing eyewear, then later grew to produce headwear and face protection also, the field of body protection is the latest expansion. As of late, their focus has been on creating fully integrated soldier systems that are top class. The masterminds that work in advanced Revision facilities have stopped at nothing to provide for clients that include the Canadian Department of National Defence, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the Netherlands Defense Material Organization, among others.
The Revision company has taken pride that their bid is the top selection for this project. Their products will surpass standard Quality Assurance Plans and the highest of body armor industry standards.
