Lakeland signs deal with Brazilian Navy

July 25, 2011

$5 million contract will lead to expansion.

Protective apparel maker Lakeland Industries has received a contract from the Brazilian navy worth up to $5 million for the purchase of fire resistant coveralls.
The Brazilian Navy placed its first order with the company recently, valued at over $500,000.
With the aid of the contract, the company is now in the process of expanding and purchasing land immediately adjacent to its current facility in Ronkonkoma, NY, USA, which will then be used for the construction of additional manufacturing facilities, perhaps in three phases over the next two years.
