LONDON (May 2, 2012)—Avon Rubber P.L.C. said it has received its largest ever single non-U.S. Department of Defense order, worth $23.8 million, for respiratory protection products.
The unnamed customer is in the Middle East, Avon said. Most of the revenue from the contract will accrue during the 2013 and 2014 financial years.
“The receipt of this order clearly demonstrates the confidence our customers have in our world leading respiratory protection products and gives us momentum for 2013,” said Avon Chief Executive Peter Slabbert.
