Kappler, ADS partner to ensure safety to DoD personnel
Department of Defense emergency responders should benefit from streamlined access to protective apparel, thanks to a Strategic Distribution Agreement between Kappler and ADS. Kappler is the established global technology leader in chemical protective apparel, manufacturing proven chemical fabrics and innovative garments from coveralls to gas-tight suits.
ADS provides mission-critical solutions for military personnel and will serve as a key Kappler distributor for DoD markets.
According to Ashley Brady, director of Markets/Special Missions Solutions for ADS, this relationship between industry leaders offers a streamlined solution to ensure proven, cost-effective protection for DoD personnel.
"Chemical protection is literally a life-or-death issue for emergency responders," Brady said. "We are excited to be able to deliver the absolute best products to our military customers through this new business relationship with Kappler."
Kappler and ADS have worked together for the last few years, combining Kappler protective technology expertise with ADS's unique skill-set for best-practice procurement support. The new partnership will allow both companies to optimise their strengths and further benefit DoD customers, according to Kappler president and CEO Laura Kappler-Roberts.
"We know protective clothing - in fact we pioneered most of the major technology in use around the world - and ADS delivers superior DoD support," Kappler-Roberts said. "We are confident that military responders will gain much from this new relationship." (SV)
