The feedback we have had, as a result of the great work our HighCom team has undertaken for this very important international customer to produce and ship the more than 120,000 high quality, life-saving personal ballistic protective products included in this order, has been nothing short of glowing. On the back of having supplied this massive order so smoothly for them, and in record time, we believe from their feedback, that we are uniquely positioned to assist them over the coming weeks and months to fulfil any additional orders they may have for life-saving body armour and ballistic helmets.
