Revision Military wins Canadian body armour contract

8th November 2013 - 07:11 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Revision Military will supply the Canadian armed forces with Batlskin Bullet Resistant Plates under a new contract announced on 7 November. The lighter weight ballistic plates will provide durable protection for troops while lightening their in-theatre load.

Under the contract, the company will also supply special training plates along with a carrier in which soldiers can readily transport this equipment when it’s not required to be worn.

Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision Military, said: ‘We are extremely proud that after several years of research and development on this programme, Revision’s bid has been selected to supply Canada’s soldiers with plates that exceed the highest industry standards and the company’s rigorous Quality Assurance Plans.

‘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.’

Deliveries under the contract will commence in April 2014; the contract also includes 5 option years.
