U.S. Congressman Jerry Costello (D-IL) announced today that the Belleville Shoe Manufacturing Company will share a $48,760,000 contract from the U.S. Army with Wolverine World Wide, based in Rockford, Michigan. The companies will produce Army Mountain Combat Boots.
"This work supports our troops and our economy," said Costello. "I will continue to work to make sure that sufficient resources are available for our Armed Forces."
