HUNTSMAN DEFENCE SIGNS DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT WITH EOTECH LLC
Townsville, QLD – March 2022. Huntsman Defence (Huntsman), a Queensland based defence and law enforcement industry company, today announced that it has entered into an Agreement with EOTECH LLC as an Authorised Representative and Distributor of the American-based company’s innovative holographic weapon sights, precision rifle scopes, weapon lighting systems, alongside cutting edge digital sensor systems and night-vision to the Australian market.
The Agreement adds Huntsman Defence to a group of authorised worldwide distributors for the EOTECH brand. Huntsman Defence will distribute EOTECH products to Australian Law Enforcement, Military, other Government Agency end-users and the civilian sport shooting markets.
EOTECH is best known for its battle-proven Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS) and Magnifier line of Optics and has since expanded its product catalogue to include the ‘Golden Bullseye Optic of the Year’ award-winning range of Vudu® 1-6x Precision Rifle Scopes. As of 2022, Eotech has acquired Intevac Inc’s Photonics division, a California-based technology leader in cutting-edge digital sensor systems and night-vision programs for Military and Law Enforcement. Eotech has further diversified its product line by recently launching its first LED-based pistol sight, the EFLX Mini Reflex Sight, for both professional and private use.
The EOTECH HWS line of optics are a battle-proven, operator-favoured sighting solution for the rapid acquisition of fast-moving threats in a close engagement setting. “The battle-proven performance of the Eotech HWS systems is unmatched. This represents an outstanding addition to the product-based solutions offered by Huntsman Defence. The Eotech partnership will advance our ability to support both the safety of the community and operators, and provide tactical advantages to the men and women who serve the community or travel far from home into harm’s way.” Huntsman Defence Managing Director Rob Woods explained.
“Our Government end-user partners require optic solutions that provide unmatched accuracy and performance in order to minimise the risk to the community, non-combatants and operators. They look for characteristics such as ruggedness, speed to acquire a sight picture, free from parallax and other negative impacts to accuracy and precision, to neutralise a threat in a close engagement space, the ability to integrate those systems in both daylight and low-light settings, and an economical cost of ownership. The EOTECH range of Holographic Weapon Sights excels in all of these areas.” Mr Woods said.
“We are also very keen to support the civilian sport shooting community through the commercial sale of Eotech products here in Australia. We plan to achieve that through a wholesale distribution initiative planned for launch in the second quarter of the 2023 Fiscal Year. Huntsman Aus has a growing Australian Dealer network. We know that the addition of Eotech products for sport applications will enhance our ability to serve the Dealer network. This is an exciting partnership for us. The relationship will result in significant benefits to our Government end-users and the civilian sport shooting community.” Mr Woods concluded.
