Revision Military Purchases ACH Helmet Production Business

Just last week we had seen that Revision was expanding its operations into body armor to build on their existing manufacturing of high quality mil-spec head and eye protection products. Now they have announced the purchase of MSA's Ballistic Helmet business in Newport, Vermont. This will further expand their reach into the military helmet market which was recently highlighted with their innovative BATLSKIN ACH Head protection system.

The purchase of MSA's helmet manufacturing and operations expands Revision's reach with facilities capable of mass producing Aramid based helmets with inherent flame resistance and ballistic protection. Revision will already have established contracts with the US Army to continue fulfilling orders for thousands of ACH helmets. It will also be interesting to see how their BATLSKIN ACH plays into this latest acquisition given the wide scale manufacturing of the principle helmet for the U.S. Army.
