Brown McFarlane and Miilux Oy at DSA 2012

Last week, Brown McFarlane attended the 2012 Defence Services Asia (DSA) exhibition and conference. The four day event ran from Monday to Thursday at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The event, which only comes around every two years, is now one of the world’s top 5 defence and homeland security exhibitions.

Brown McFarlane shared an exhibition stand at DSA 2012 with Miilux Oy (part of the Miilukangas Group). Miilux Oy of Finland is the manufacturer of Protection 500 steel (designed for human protection). Brown McFarlane Far East is now stocking a range of Miilux Protection 500 plates in its Singapore warehouse for distribution across the region.

Speaking after the event, Barry Morse said:

“Brown McFarlane Far East has been granted exclusive distributorship for stock sales of Miilux Protection products for much of South East Asia. Miilux Oy has been a long time partner of Brown McFarlane and sharing the exhibition stand has further strengthened that relationship.”

Brown McFarlane now offers a wide range of Miilux armour plate directly from stock in Singapore and Dubai. The exhibition stand successfully attracted visitors from across the ASEAN countries. Brown McFarlane Far East Pte Ltd is now working hard to follow up the business leads established through DSA 2012.
