Terra Kodiak to produce new navy boots
Sep '10
The Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence, announced the awarding of a $6.1 million contract to Terra Kodiak, located in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland and Labrador, for the production of 42,500 pairs of sea boots.

The acquisition of new sea boots was made under the Naval Improved Clothing and Equipment (NICE) project, an initiative of the Department of National Defence, which aims to improve the clothing ensemble issued to sailors to ensure they are properly equipped for domestic and international operations in all geographical and climatic conditions. This contract was awarded to Terra Kodiak following a competitive procurement process.

"Our sailors operate in a wide range of environments, from the cold seas of the Arctic to the hot climate of the Persian Gulf region, resulting in unique clothing requirements," said the Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence. "It is essential they have the appropriate clothing and equipment to effectively conduct their missions."

These new sea boots will provide the Navy with common operational footwear suitable for both shore and at-sea duties, and will be approximately 25 per cent lighter than the current safety boot. The new sea boots are expected to be distributed to naval personnel starting in the fall of 2010.

This is the second contract to be awarded under the NICE project. The first contract, for the production of naval t-shirts, was awarded to Stanfield, located in Truro, Nova Scotia, in the fall of 2009.
