FIBROTEX announces add-on order from Israel MoD for hundreds of ultra-smart, next generation, two-sided combat uniforms
Wednesday, Nov 28, 2012
FIBROTEX Technologies - a leading provider of advanced static and mobile camouflage and deception systems for armies and security forces worldwide - announces receipt of an add-on order for hundreds of its FIGHTEX combat uniforms for an Elite Unit of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
The uniforms were ordered by one of the primary commando units of the IDF, which purchases advanced combat uniforms as part of the new soldier's survivability pack. These smart, next generation, two-sided uniforms were selected over various international competitors following extensive rigorous tests that were conducted under extreme environmental, climatic, and combat conditions.
According to the company's VP Marketing & Sales, Mr. Yosef Kraus, "We are pleased to have been selected once again to supply smart uniforms to one of the elite units of the IDF. We regard this repeat selection of our uniforms as a reflection of the quality of our solutions, and of the IDF's full confidence in them. We will begin delivery of the order at the end of this year and will continue the supply during the first quarter of 2013."
This new generation of uniforms was developed in cooperation with special units of the IDF, based on conclusions drawn from an in-depth study of recent conflicts. Combining knowledge from the extreme sports domain - together with their expertise in the area of smart textile and camouflage fabrics - the company has developed advanced materials that are extremely breathable and ergonomic. These qualities have proven critical during intense operations in extreme weather conditions. Exceptionally durable, the combat-proven uniforms are lightweight and provide visual and near infra-red concealment. The reversible fabrics are printed with a different camouflage pattern on each side, enabling the adjustment of uniforms to any type of environment – thus enhancing the soldiers' survivability. For example, one side of the fabric can provide camouflage for green areas such as forests, while the other side camouflages soldiers in desert or urban environments. Patterns and properties can be fully customized to precisely match any other requirements.
Mr. Kraus further remarked, "In addition to the IDF, interest has been expressed in our unique uniforms by various other international customers, and we expect to receive additional orders in the coming weeks."
