Revision Military Appoints Brigadier Peter Rafferty (Retired) to Head New UK Facility

*At the end of September 2019, Revision Military sold its protective eyewear business along with the Revision Military name. The remaining Armor, Soldier Power, Platform Power and Advanced Concept divisions move forward from that date under the new corporate name of Galvion. The press release below was issued prior to that sale, and therefore appears using the Revision Military name.*

Revision Military, a world leader in integrated, purpose-built soldier solutions, announces the addition of Peter Rafferty as President of Revision Military (UK) Ltd.

Brigadier (Retired) Rafferty served over 30 years as a Regular Infantry Officer, holding commissions in the King’s Regiment and latterly the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment. His military deployments include the Falkland Islands, Northern Ireland, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Bosnia, Kosovo, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Libya. Also an acquisition professional, he led the Dismounted Close Combat Integrated Project Team, the Personal Combat Equipment Project Team and was Head of the Individual Capability Group responsible for infantry equipment programme delivery. He also conceived and led the development of the Integrated Soldier Executive.

Peter’s appointment to the role of President, Revision Military (UK), LTD., coincides with the establishment of a new Revision UK Facility in Bristol, as the Company begins delivery on the Cobra Plus helmets and eye protection related to the multi-year UK VIRTUS Program. Revision’s UK presence demonstrates its commitment to the UK, and provides a location to support the European and Middle East businesses as well.

On the announcement of his appointment Peter said: “I am delighted to have joined Revision Military to lead our efforts here in the UK and beyond. Revision’s track record of putting the soldier first is second to none, delivering world class personal protective equipment of the highest quality. The Company is passionately committed to our soldiers, their survivability and their success in defense of our nations. The vision, values and ethos of the Company are instantly recognizable to me as a retired Infantry soldier. I am proud to be part of Revision’s continuing mission to ensure that our soldiers get the very best equipment, as they have the right to expect.”
