Report summary

Lakeland Industries is a major producer of industrial protective clothing. The company supplies more than 200 different products to customers in a wide range of industries and services, ranging from car manufacturing and food processing to fire fighting and emergency response.

Since the 1990s, Lakeland has evolved from a small cut-and-sew manufacturer to a multinational company with sales in more than 40 countries and a comprehensive supply chain. Also, it has relocated some of its production from the USA to low cost countries and become one of the lowest cost providers of high quality, innovative garments in the industrial protective clothing industry.

Despite sluggish economic conditions, the company's management is cautiously upbeat about the future, not least because operations outside the USA are growing strongly. The company has strong growth ambitions and hopes to capitalise on the fragmented nature of the industry by acquiring businesses which supply products similar to its own or businesses which specialise in safety products that it does not currently offer.

The report highlights the company's development, its products and technologies, research and development, manufacturing and product sourcing, sales and marketing activities, acquisitions and financial performance, as well as providing an outlook for the future.

This report is vital for anyone involved in industrial protective clothing -- or the fibres, fabrics, chemicals and treatments used in its manufacture. Also, it serves as an indispensable case study for those who want insight on a market leader in the industry.
