BOTAS BATA

VIEWS: 27 PAGES: 2

									Major ministries of defence – including the French army– have been
wearing Bata's footgear collection, consisting of safety boots and
matching socks, for years. Our footwear is also frequently worn by
fire brigades and police forces (including the Metropolitan Police of
London) and other uniformed services. These organizations choose
footwear from Bata Industrials because it offers the perfect balance
of protection and comfort, both under normal and extreme
conditions.

Bata Industrials is part of the Bata Shoe Organisation (BSO),
worldwide one of the largest manufacturers and sellers of shoes,
with more than 40,000 people active in 50 countries on nearly every
continent. Bata Industrials is a market leader in the Benelux for
industrial boots and combat boots, and has production facilities all
over the world.

MILITARY FOOTWEAR

Comfort and safety, all in one boot? Bata knows that designing a
boot that is waterproof and breathable requires some ingenious
brainwork. Since 2005 Bata have been members of the Netherlands
Defence Manufacturers Association (NIID, Stichting Nederlandse
Industriële Inschakeling Defensieopdrachten) that promotes optimal
involvement of the Netherlands industry with respect to
procurements and assignments of the Ministry of Defence. Bata
Industrials has a substantial R&D department that tackles the
applications and behaviours of various materials on a daily basis.
All this effort goes to creating boots that fit better and are even safer
and more comfortable.

We strive to unlock the potential of the latest technological
innovations in lightweight materials, both natural products as well
as a variety of synthetics. We are also the only company in the
Netherlands with a licence for the well-known GORE-TEX material
which is also available in a ‘cold-wet weather’ version.

HISTORY IN COMBAT BOOTS

Our development and production processes are based on more than
100 years of experience as the largest boot manufacturer in the
world. Since the 1970s, we have specialised in the development and
production of safety boots for military personnel. Among other
things, this led to the development of the M90 combat boot for the
Dutch armed forces in the mid-1980s.
SENTINEL M900 COMBAT BOOTS

Currently, we develop a special version of the successor to the M90
boots together with various security forces: the Sentinel M900
combat boots. In developing this boot, we conducted an extensive
search to find the right balance between weight, stability, grip and
climate control. After all, the last thing members of the armed forces
and relief workers want to have to think about while in action is their
footwear. Naturally the same principles holds true for the other
sectors which have found their way to Bata, including construction
and industry.

MODERN COMBAT BOOT PRODUCTION LINES

Thanks to our brand-new production line in Best, we are able to be
flexible in our response to any order quantity in any desired size,
from 35 through 49. Some of our collections are even available in
four different widths. Additionally, with our French company Marbot,
we now have access to a production facility that supplies some
200,000 Brodequin combat boots to the French army on an annual
basis.

SOCKS

In addition to safety boots, we also manufacture socks. The wrong
sock can actually reverse the comfort of a safety boot. Bata socks
are made from special yarns which keep feet dry, cool and odour-
free.
