Supply Chain

OUR SUPPLY CHAIN AND HISTORY

LION is a global leader in supply chain and lifecycle management of protective clothing, equipment, and uniforms. We have a deep commitment to delivering superior services supporting our customers' personal safety, situation readiness and professional identity needs. For us, that means developing long-term partnerships with our customers and providing our customers.

Early Beginnings

LION began working with U.S. government organizations and the military during World War II. In conjunction with General Electric, we designed and manufactured the first electrically heated flight suit, which allowed for high-altitude flying and was considered an important factor in the success of the United States' war effort. After WWII, government and military contracts became a core business for LION.

Early Beginnings

The Start of LVI

In 1995, LION — through a joint-venture partnership with Hagemeyer, N.A. (formerly Vallen Safety Supply Company) — became the "prime vendor" for recruit clothing and individual equipment items at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. This joint-venture partnership, officially known as LION-Vallen Industries, or "LVI" for short, has become successful in its own right and has achieved impressive results.
