Systel Partnering with Holmwood Highgate to Support Australian Defense with Next-Generation Rugged Computing

Systel, Inc., an industry leader in rugged computing, announced a new partnership with Queensland-based Holmwood Highgate, bringing joint capability to support Australian defense.  

Holmwood Highgate, a third-generation family business that is recognized as Australia's leading manufacturer of bulk liquid storage and transportation systems for fuel and water has already enjoyed success within Australia's defense industry by being able to adapt and embrace innovative thinking.

"Creating a world leading product for LAND 121 3B encouraged us to go down this path," says Wade Mellish – Holmwood Highgate's Group Executive Director, "We had been searching for some time to find a capability that we could bring to the Australian market that is relatively unique and can provide great value to a broad range of industries – Systel's rugged computer systems ticks all of those boxes."

Vimal Kothari, founder and CEO of Systel explains why he thought Holmwood Highgate was the right distributor for the region: "Wade and his team have been at the forefront of companies expanding their brand in the international market. Our companies connected at the Team Defence Australia stand at AUSA in Washington D.C. last year and although we both had quite different capabilities, their clear desire to be innovative, forward-looking, and service-orientated mirrors our core values and focus."

Holmwood Highgate and Systel will exhibit at two upcoming land warfare exhibitions, Land Forces Australia in AdelaideSeptember 4-6 in Stand 5A16 and AUSA in Washington D.C.October 8-10 in Booth# 9221.
