PRESS RELEASE - 5 May 2023
Leeds-based company DIRICKX Systems, which specialises in the manufacture, supply and installation of defensive systems has announced the fulfilment of two contracts to supply “significant quantities” of its Expeditionary Barriers to DE&S (Defence, Equipment and Support), the procurement division of UK MOD. A number of these units will be deployed to support Partner Forces in Ukraine.
The two contracts demonstrate UK MOD’s commitment to supporting British business, as well as their confidence in DIRICKX Systems’ superior design, quality and expertise in the manufacture of EB Units. It is the largest order received by DIRICKX Systems since their launch less than 12 months ago, and has enabled the company to expand significantly, creating employment in the region and exceeding Q1 quotas.
Kevin Lyons, CEO and Founder of DIRICKX Systems said: “We’re delighted to have fulfilled such a substantial order for UK MOD, and are proud to be supporting them in protecting personnel and assets in Ukraine. Their show of faith has enabled us to employ many experienced members of staff bringing trusted professionals into the DIRICKX Systems family.”
UK MOD’s Operational Delivery Manager expressed his gratitude to the team at DIRICKX Systems for their efficient fulfilment of this rapid procurement contract. He said: “To manufacture and deliver to such a tight time-scale, the team must have been under pressure, but it did not show! The correspondence and updates throughout have been superb, your logistics and organisation were first class, and the product has been very well received by our Partner Forces.”
