NEWMARKET, Ontario—AirBoss of America Corp.'s defense business has landed two new orders for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear protective over-boots from the U.S. Department of Defense.
Estimated value of the two contracts is about $15 million. The pacts call for the company to produce and supply just over 400,000 pairs of over-boots, the Newmarket-based firm said. The orders are part of an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract AirBoss has with the department.
Deliveries of the over-boots are expected to commence by the end of 2014 and continue through 2015.
The pacts are in addition to other orders the company recently received from a number of offshore markets for the firm's full range of military products, AirBoss said.
