The new agreement allows XTEK to exclusively market and distribute H&K small arms weapon systems to Australian law enforcement authorities and the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

As the exclusive value-added reseller, XTEK can introduce Australian industry content such as making carbon fibre parts using its XTclave to the weapon systems to best suit customer capability requirements in Australia and overseas.

XTEK will also perform higher margin services such as training, repair and maintenance services on the H&K weapon systems for its life cycle.
