A Melbourne company has won an historic $35 million contract to refurbish and upgrade the Australian Defence Force’s combat helmets.

The five-year deal with Aquaterro will create 10 highly skilled, technical jobs at the company in Melbourne’s south-east.

It is the first time the tiered combat helmet built by United States company Team Wendy has been refurbished outside the US.
