January 29, 2014 – Flame-resistant (FR) workwear provider Workrite Uniform Co. Inc. (a division of Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co.) launched Workrite Canada, including local sales representation, inventory and a distribution centre.
The launch of Workrite Canada includes the creation of a product line specifically developed to meet Canadian standards and practices when it comes to protective clothing at the jobsite, says the company. This line of Workrite products includes a variety of coveralls, as well as an insulated bib, parka and hood—all made with FR fabrics such as UltraSoft and Nomex, and including reflective tape in the CSA striping configuration.
Keith Suddaby, president of Workrite, explained that “the launch of Workrite Canada with local sales and distribution will streamline our shipping and increase our availability and service capabilities” to Canadian customers.
