ARNPRIOR, ON: Pacific Safety Products Inc (PSP), a manufacturer of armour solutions, has won a contract from the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services for the delivery and disposal of ballistic personal soft body armour systems. Pacific Safety Products said the omnibus contract allows municipal and provincial agencies to acquire PSP’s products through pre-negotiated arrangements.

The Contract has an initial period of performance of three years with an option for an additional two years, the company said, estimating potential sales value of this contract between $12.5 and $15 million, including the option years.

The contract will allow the municipal and provincial agencies, including all advisory, adjudicative, regulatory and operational service agencies and other entities falling within the public service, to buy the company’s NIJ 0101.06 certified HeliX male and female armour and carriers. The products will be manufactured at the Company’s Arnprior, Ontario facility. The contract started January 16, with new orders and deliveries.

“PSP has won this contract in a fair, open and transparent competitive process, and the selection of the company by this customer reflects well on the quality of our products, services we provide, and customer value we deliver,” said PSP’s CEO, Doug Lucky.
