Liverpool marine firm International Safety Products (ISP) is announcing major defense sector growth after securing a deal with the Pakistan Navy.

The Bootle business has signed a contract to supply the Asian security force with more than 180 assault troop lifejackets. The specialized life preservers have a low profile and compact design for use in amphibious operations.

ISP managing director John Rogers said the firm is witnessing rapid expansion in the defense sector. It follows other recent deals with U.K. Ministry of Defense (MoD) and the Royal Netherlands Navy.

Rogers said there are also strong indications of repeat business with the Pakistan Navy in the coming months.

“This is another terrific contract win for ISP,” Rogers said. “These assault troop lifejackets will be manufactured in our Bootle factory before being exported to Asia. ISP is one of the largest manufacturers of lifejackets in the world. This particular heavy duty lifejacket is designed to support combat personnel and up to 40kg of equipment. They are easily discarded and integrate with paratrooper harnesses. The assault troop lifejackets are further designed for use in all geographical areas including extreme and adverse conditions. This deal helps to demonstrate the strength and depth of ISP's manufacturing  capability. It further shows the versatility of our product line.”

The Asian deal comes within months of ISP securing another agreement with the U.K. MoD to continue servicing Intrepid Once Only Survival Suits.

ISP has supplied more than 30,000 suits to the MoD since striking up the relationship in 2004. The products also known as “abandonment suits” help to maximize the chance of survival for military personnel escaping stricken vessels.

The firm is further preparing to dispatch 1,000 specifically designed lifejackets to the Royal Netherlands Navy. It has already delivered 900 of the custom-made life preservers to the Dutch force and is due to issue the latest tranche as part of a three-year, 3,000 lifejacket contract.

“The defense sector is a key market for ISP,” Rogers said. “We are continuing to build a strong reputation for delivering high quality marine safety equipment, and in particular lifejackets, to military and defense sector organizations across the world. This latest contract demonstrates our global reach and ambition to continue driving our market share.”
