Polish footwear firm Wojas SA has signed a contract to produce combat boots for the NATO Support and Procurement Agency.

The deal, signed last Friday, is valued at USD 6.44 million (PLN 24.3 million), Wojas said in a press release on Tuesday.

The first batch of footwear is to be delivered in January next year, and the entire contract is to be completed by mid-July 2021.

For several years now, the Wojas company, based in Nowy Targ, in southern Poland, has been providing specialist footwear for the army, fire brigades, border guards, Polish post office, and forestry and transport services.
