SARNIA, ON--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2014) - Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: LLLI), a manufacturer of less lethal weapons and ammunition for the training of Police Military and Government Security personnel, today announced the receipt of a purchase order from Canada's Federal Government to supply 350 Ultra-Light 40MM Single-Shot Grenade Launchers. Under the agreement, the company will supply 250 launchers by March 31, 2014 with the remaining 100 to be delivered at a later date. These launchers are capable of deploying impact rounds and gas rounds, as well as more traditional rounds.
"The Canadian Federal Government's purchase order represents the first of many for our new ultra-light launchers," said Barry Lamperd, Chairman & CEO of Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. "The new launchers have generated significant excitement amongst police and military forces who have tested the products, and believe they could become a new industry standard."
The new Ultra-Light Single-Shot Launchers are made from a high-performance composite material and weigh just 3.7 pounds with other competitive launchers starting at around 9 pounds. The Company is also releasing a new Ultra-Light Multi-Shot Launcher that weighs just 5.4 pounds which encompasses a revolutionary new magazine feed allowing for significantly faster deployment.
Both are the lightest of their kind in the industry and will save on carry and transport weight.
