US: Rocky Brands wins new boot orders
Specialist footwear provider Rocky Brands has won two additional boot orders for the General Services Administration (GSA) and the US Military.
The US company said it had been engaged to produce 45,000 pairs of insulated boots worth US$3.2m under the $29m blanket purchase agreement with the GSA announced in August 2009.
In addition, the US Military ordered 8,000 pairs of “Hot Weather” boots worth $0.5m under a contract announced in July 2007.
Rocky Brands said the items would be shipped in 2010 after manufacture at its plant in Moca, Puerto Rico.
“These additional orders will contribute to the achievement of our growth objectives for 2010, while at the same time helping to offset cost increases through better utilisation of our company-operated facility in Puerto Rico,” said Mike Brooks, Rocky Brands chairman and CEO.
Higher sales levels in both its wholesale and military segments have helped apparel and footwear maker Rocky Brands Inc to a 68% hike in third-quarter profit....
