"It is exciting to follow-up our recent order from Australian Defence Industries with some substantial trunking orders from our U.S. forces. These orders are from military segments that have not previously purchased our products, further expanding and strengthening our footprint with the U.S. military. The defense and military market segments are an important part of our strategic growth plans. We have also successfully established other new relationships recently with agencies such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Department of Commerce, and the U.S. Veterans Administration," says David Storey, RELM president and chief executive officer.
