Increased focus in the APAC region

Territorial issues, and political issues, are acting as a major driver in the APAC region, along with the increasing dissatisfaction with the local governments in countries, like Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, and Malaysia is generating a greater need for the procurement and deployment of tactical and protective equipment by law enforcement and specialist military agencies.

Chrys Stevenson, FDS’ Director of Strategy and Business Development said “12 months ago we appointed Singapore based Heimdall Defence as our value-add reseller, this has enabled us to develop a much better understanding of the region, the culture(s), and the customers. With opportunities flourishing in several countries, we are expanding our efforts into Australia and the wider APAC, through our partnership with Toronto based Inkas® Armored Vehicle Manufacturing, and the appointment of in-country resellers”.

Ferdinand Tan, Heimdall Defence’s Managing Director said “FDS has a great portfolio of tactical products and solutions. The relationship that we have enables me to demonstrate equipment, lead the capture, and give the customers the reassurance that Heimdall Defence will be their first port of call for after sales support”.

Harald Klosterman, Inkas® Armoured Vehicle Manufacturing, Engineering Director said “the synergy between us and FDS is very compelling. Our partnership has enabled us to produce a highly capable intervention capability which has already stimulated significant interest across the APAC region”.
