VOTI Detection awarded contract to supply X-ray equipment to Canadian embassies
VOTI Detection, a Montreal-based company that develops X-ray security systems, announced it has been awarded a three-year contract with further options from Global Affairs Canada for the supply of X-ray scanning systems to Canadian embassy locations worldwide.
According to the company, the three-year contract includes an initial order which calls for the delivery of 20 scanning systems to be delivered by January 2022. The order is for two sizes of X-ray machines. Global Affairs Canada has the mandate to provide X-ray machines for screening of threats at Global Affairs buildings in Canada and Canadian embassies worldwide.
“The Global Affairs Canada contract is a very important win for VOTI for a number of reasons,” said Rory Olson, president and CEO, OTI Detection, in a statement. “Firstly, the long term nature of the contract with as prestigious a client as Global Affairs Canada bodes well for our order book going forward and is the exact type of business and relationship that we have been working hard to build and nurture over the past few years. Secondly, the opportunity as a Canadian company to provide perimeter security for our Canadian embassies around the world is something that we take great pride in. The fact that our disruptive X-ray scanning systems will be in use and on display around the world is a very significant opportunity for VOTI to showcase its technology and global servicing capabilities.”
