In one of their latest export deals Goliath Footwear has delivered thousands of FB300GTX Poseidon Firefighter boots to the Chinese province of Guizhous. The new deal with Guizhous Fire Department, who were heavily involved in rescue efforts after the Great Sichuan earthquake, will kit out fire crews in the mountainous province, covering an area of around 68,000 square miles with over thirty four million people.
The boots were chosen following a tender process with a Beijing based partner, to manufacture and supply high performance and durable Firefighter boots suitable for the geographic and environmental features of the Chinese region. The news follows recent success of a renewed UK contract with North West Fire and Rescue Services for another 4 years.
Renowned for its Dual Density Rubber Soling technology (DDR), Goliath Footwear has built a reputation for reliable and durable footwear for extremely hazardous environments. Together with their technology partners GORE-TEX®, CORDURA® and Coolmax® they bring together technical fabrics and materials to produce durable high performance footwear in the Utilities, Construction, Foundry and Emergency Services sectors.
The footwear selected by Guizhous FD is required to withstand considerable adverse weather, extreme adverse terrain and fuel / oil contaminants underfoot in order that fire crews can confidently carry out their rescue role. During trials Goliath’s DDR sole outlasts alternative sole types for durability, comfort and cost effectiveness for heavy industrial and hazardous terrain.
Richard Habany, Sales and Operations Director for Goliath Footwear stated “The export success we have in China, Australasia and Europe demonstrate our technologies and core manufacturing strengths continue to strike a chord with Emergency Services. They need the very best durable and protective footwear for hazardous conditions, and we are proud to be designing and producing footwear that meets those requirements on a global level.’
