Two top brands bundling expertise
German helmet manufacturer Schuberth and Wiley X, a US-based global market leader for ballistic rated protective eyewear, recently signed a strategic collaboration agreement for the development and marketing of combined head and eye protection solutions.
With the signing of this agreement, Schuberth was appointed the exclusive representative for Wiley X in the German governmental market. For Schuberth‘s CEO Jan-Christian Becker, the collaboration will result in substantial customer benefits and enormous potential for both partners: “It makes logical sense to combine ballistic head protection with ballistic eye protection: the products of both our companies complement each other perfectly. We will now be able to meet our customers‘ requests for all-inclusive concepts from a single source with optimally matched units,“ he said.
For the development of combined helmet and eye protection systems, Schuberth will have around 70 different types of Wiley X eyewear available. This will enable Schuberth to fulfil the specific needs of governmental clients precisely and to supply products that are tailor-made to meet the demands of the respective purpose. A key factor is that all the various types of eyewear available can already be combined with the military and police helmets currently manufactured by the company.
