During his recent visit to the UK, David Jarvis, Chief Executive Officer of Xtek Ltd, visited HISL's Letchworth offices to sign an exclusive distribution agreement for the Argus range of public order and anti riot helmets.

As Australia's only publicly listed Homeland Security Company, Xtek is the market leader in the provision of police & security equipment, security training and related services, via their offices in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide.

Xtek have already achieved significant success in supplying the Argus anti-riot helmet to the police forces of Western Australia, Victoria and South Australia, and are working to extend usage of the riot helmet throughout Australia. In addition, they are to introduce the new Cromwell ER1(3) CBRN helmet which has been acquired by the UK Police Services for use by their CBRN teams, in conjunction with the existing protective clothing and equipment.

Following an extensive assessment and evaluation process the UK Police National CBRN Centre through the Operational Response Programme selected the Cromwell ER1(3) helmet to provide head protection for the wearer, and importantly to ensure that the helmet would integrate with the hoods of the CBRN protective clothing, and the respirator, maintaining the required levels of facial sealing and respiratory protection.

During visits to Australia, HISL's International Sales Manager, Steve Skeggs has worked closely with Xtek to promote the superior protection and comfort provided by the Argus police helmets, and additionally the importance of using helmets which are manufactured and approved to dedicated standards for public order, such as PAS017 and HOSDB. During the signing of the distribution agreement Steve commented,  'I am delighted with the professional way Xtek have introduced the Argus range of police and cash-in-transit helmets to Australia. The signing of the agreement helps to cement an excellent working relationship, and am sure that our mutual co-operation will bring further success to both companies in the future.'
