Ironclad, 511 Team To Provide Gloves For Law Enforcement, Firefighters And Military

Ironclad Performance Wear Corp. -- a Los Angeles-based manufacturer of high-performance, task-specific gloves and apparel -- and 5.11 Inc. -- a Modesto, Calif.-based developer and distributor of products for law enforcement, firefighting and military professionals -- have signed a long-term supply and development agreement under which Ironclad will be exclusive designer and manufacturer of a full line of task-specific gloves for 5.11, which will sell, market and distribute the gloves globally under the 5.11 Tactical® brand, with the co-brand "Built Tough By Ironclad™".

"Hand protection and grip enhancement are very important needs for police, fire, first-responders and the military," said Ed Jaeger, founder and head of business development, Ironcald. "By combining Ironclad's technical expertise in designing task-specific gloves across a wide range of industries with 5.11 Tactical's superior understanding of the end-users' needs and industry requirements, we will be bringing the best, most advanced products to this market."

The companies report that design and production of the 5.11 Tactical gloves is underway and should be available through 5.11's dealer network and website by early 2010.
