XTEK Acquires HighCom Armor

At HighCom Armor our mission is to ensure that those who protect us return home safely. For over two decades, we have provided hard and soft armor solutions for military and law enforcement agencies globally with a reputation for innovative technology, exceptional customer service, and superior quality performance. This month marks a new chapter for our company and we are extremely pleased to announce XTEK’s acquisition of HighCom Armor. 

Who is XTEK? 

XTEK LTD is the market leader in high-quality security products to protect and sustain the Defense Forces, Police Forces, and other Government agencies. The XTclave technology is a composite curing and consolidation technology that was initially developed as a manufacturing process for ballistic protection laminates, specifically Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPI). The XTclave composite technology makes it possible to manufacture lighter, stronger and stiffer composite articles including ballistic plates, helmets and more.

What does this mean for HighCom Armor’s future and our customers?
