Gentex Corporation demonstrates more robust line of Aircrew Helmet Systems at Avalon Air Show

Carbondale, Pennsylvania, February 19, 2015. Gentex Corporation, a global leader in integrated helmet systems for defense and security personnel together with its U.K. subsidiary, Helmet Integrated Systems (HISL), will demonstrate their combined, industry leading lines of Gentex and ALPHA aircrew helmet brands at the Avalon Air Show February 24 through March 1 in Geelong, Australia.

In July, 2014, Gentex acquired HISL to combine their world-class product lines, technologies, and manufacturing resources to provide customers one of the most advanced, comprehensive lines of integrated helmet, respiratory and communications systems in the market.

“We’re excited to present, for the first time to the Australian market, our combined portfolio of aircrew solutions,” said Robert McCay, vice president, Gentex Aircrew Systems.  “Gentex is dedicated to continuing and improving the ALPHA line of aircrew products. We look forward to delivering a new level of capability and value to all of our customers with the collective resources of Gentex and HISL. Gentex also remains heavily committed to supporting our longstanding relationship with the Royal Australian Air Force.”

“I have complete confidence that our existing ALPHA Aircrew Helmet customers will continue to receive excellent service support through our Regional Manager in Australia,” commented Richard Dellar, managing director, HISL. “It is a very exciting time for our customers who we hope will begin to see first-hand the benefits of joining forces with Gentex.”

The Gentex and HISL booth is located at booth #2A11. Representatives from both companies will be on hand to meet with customers and media throughout the show. Gentex Aircrew products will also be on display in Transaero booth 3D3.  For more information on the Gentex and HISL product portfolios, visit
