April 2016, Fibrotex Technologies - a leading designer, developer, and manufacturer of advanced camouflage systems for Armies and Security Forces worldwide - was awarded (March 2016) an additional purchase order from the Finnish Defence Forces (FDF) for thousands of advanced multispectral camouflage systems.
This new purchase order is based on the Options clause of the contract Fibrotex was awarded by the FDF in November 2013. Thousands of camouflage systems were delivered to the Finnish Army during 2014 & 2015. This additional order, valued at almost 9 Million Euros, will be delivered during 2016 to 2018.
The contract enables other Nordic countries to utilize the Option clause, offering acquisition of these Nordic designed & proved camouflage systems. DALO – The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization has already utilized this Option and the systems were delivered during 2015.
Fibrotex' multispectral camouflage systems protect against various sensors in a variety of ranges, including UV, Visual, Near-Infrared, Thermal, and Radar. The systems were developed to meet the camouflage properties and extreme environmental conditions of the Scandinavian area.
Itai Gomer, VP Business Development, who leads Fibrotex’ Nordic marketing operations, said, "We consider our cooperation with the Finnish Defence Forces as more of a strategic partnership than a normal supplier-customer relationship. We constantly invest to improve our products and service, and therefore, to receive yet another purchase order is a rewarding stamp of customer satisfaction & excellence. The camouflage systems we deliver to the FDF meets the utmost advanced technical specifications and we are proud to receive recurring orders. We look forward to the future, as we focus to increase our customer’s survivability & force protection”.
