Galvion, an international designer, manufacturer and supplier of survivability and power management systems to the global defence and security sector, has signed a contract with the UK-based marketing and communications agency, Chamois Consulting Ltd. Under this contract Chamois will provide an integrated marketing and communications service with a particular focus on brand communications and PR to raise the profile and awareness of the newly launched Galvion.
Following the announcement in October 2019 of the sale of its protective eyewear business, along with the Revision Military brand name, the remaining Armor, Soldier Power and Electronics, Vehicle Platform Power and Advanced Concept divisions of the company are moving forward under the new corporate name GALVION. With seven company sites located across Canada, USA and UK, Galvion’s product portfolio includes leading-edge head, face and torso protective solutions, as well as power management systems supplied to military and tactical clients worldwide.
Galvion enjoys an impressive track record of large-scale global contracts for protective head systems as well as soldier power management systems, with customers including defence forces from the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Poland, UAE, Israel, Australia, Indonesia, Botswana and others.
Of particular note to both Galvion and Chamois is the fact that the contract was put in place during the Covid-19 lockdown period, resulting in the parties on both sides not having met each other face to face prior to contract award. For both companies this has been a clear demonstration of how innovation, determination and adaptability can allow business to continue in these uncertain and challenging times.
Marnie Blanshay, Director of Marketing and Communications at Galvion said: “We are excited to start this new partnership with Chamois. A corporate re-brand is a monumental task no matter the circumstances, but the added constraints due to COVID-19 have pushed us to look for additional partners who can help us find creative ways to engage with our customers and markets. The inability to travel to meet customers in person or engage at trade shows are obstacles that so many are facing at the moment, but business must continue, and we are looking forward to working with Chamois to introduce Galvion and advance our sharpened business portfolio”.
Jamie Clarke, CEO at Chamois said: “I’m so pleased to have signed this contract with Galvion who, for us, are a model client. Following re-branding, companies often need help to establish awareness of the new brand despite there being a clear, credible and proven pedigree reaching back under the former brand. Our aim is to place Galvion firmly and visibly on the global map and we’re really looking forward to starting work”. He added “This contract is one of two new accounts we’ve brought on board during the lockdown period, working through restrictions that made it impossible to meet those involved in person. Life is not easy for any of us at the moment but we’re finding ways to overcome the constraints and continue to grow. I’d like to wish everyone the very best in these difficult times; stay safe”.
