Will be supplying Canadian Forces jackets and trousers for hot/wet weather.
VANCOUVER — Unisync Corp.’s Peerless Garments subsidiary in Winnipeg has been awarded a $11.2 million contract by Public Works and Government Services Canada to make combat rain suits.
A firm order valued at $5.5 million requires delivery of 13,400 jackets and 9,800 trousers to the Canadian Forces. The deal includes one option for similar quantities during the 36 months following the award date.
The apparel manufacturer that has supplied the Canadian Forces since 1950 says the garments are designed for use by men and women in hot/wet weather environments.
“This contract is a welcome addition to the contract awarded last November for the production and delivery of cold weather parkas and trousers, which totalled $12.1 million including options,” said Peerless president Albert El Tassi.
The Canadian Forces also exercised two options in August totalling $16.7 million for a contract awarded in 2012.
Unisync Group, based in Mississauga, Ont., is a manufacturer of corporate apparel.
