XTEK (ASX:XTE) has received a purchase order from the Australian Defence Force (ADF) for the supply of x-ray equipment worth A$2.4 million.

The purchase order was awarded under a project for XTEK to supply x-ray and forensics equipment and consumables to the ADF.

Philippe Odouard, managing director, commented: “This purchase order win is evidence of our strong contract pipeline given the increased spending by the Australian Government on its defence needs.

“We expect further purchase orders under such projects over the next year or two and look forward to updating investors as we achieve these milestones.

“The increased demand from the Australian Government underlines our robust revenue growth outlook for the 2018 financial year.”
