Founded in 1941 as a supplier of basic parkas, Peerless has evolved over the years to a garment manufacturer and importer specializing in the production and distribution of highly technical protective garments designed to provide water-resistance, windproofing and warmth. Peerless is licensed to use Gore-Tex® fabrics including Wind-Stopper® and other work wear materials and has been a supplier to the Canadian Forces since the early 1950s. Its line of military operational clothing aims to reduce detection through camouflage and concealment while ensuring that soldiers are kept warm, dry and comfortable when exposed to extreme weather conditions. Peerless also produces tactical garments made of fire-resistant, anti-static and chemical warfare protective materials. Government business represents over 80% of Peerless’ revenue with the remaining revenue coming from sales to other Canadian government agencies, retailers, and other smaller customers including customers in the oil & gas industry.
Peerless owns its office, manufacturing and warehouse facility located at 515 Notre Dame Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba. The main manufacturing operation occupies about 60,000 square feet on two floors with a further 5,000 square feet utilized for office and staff facilities. The facility contains a further 20,000+ square feet of warehouse/distribution and loading docks.
