Written by centralfmnews on July 15, 2021
A Falkirk company has won a contract to provide 1,000 uniforms for volunteers at this year’s COP26 summit in Glasgow.
Lion Safety, which is family-run, will produce the outfits, which are made from recycled and sustainable fabrics.
Leaders from across the globe will descend on Scotland for the event.
Laurie Lewis, Sales and Marketing Director at Lion Safety, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to produce uniforms for the COP26 volunteers. To provide quality, bespoke uniforms with a huge emphasis on sustainability encapsulates everything we believe in as a business.
“The circular economy is at the heart of our operations and with such a high-profile global event being held so close to home, we felt strongly that we wanted to part of it and had something valuable to offer. These bespoke and sustainable uniforms will be delivered by local people and worn by local people at a global environmental event – this is a significant and proud moment for Lion Safety.”
