LAPCO FR Clothing
LAPCO (Louisiana Apparel Company) was founded in 1989 with one product:, a patented leather arm pad for welders. The founder, Freddie Triche, was a pipe welder who dabbled in protective clothing for welders in his backyard workshop, which eventually led to a line of quality safety apparel for welders, including shirts, leathers and other accessories. It was a natural progression from safety gear for welders to LAPCO FR clothing for all workers facing the risk of sparks or flame while on the job.
An all-American company with its own private manufacturing facility, allowing for total control of product quality, LAPCO remains a family-owned-and-operated concern. LAPCO fire resistant clothing includes bib overalls (in three colors), coveralls (in five colors), HR3 FR insulated jackets (in duck brown or grey) and 7-oz 100% cotton HRC2 work shirts. These LAPCO FRC shirts come in six colors and in both uniform and western styles. Additional LAPCO FR apparel includes jeans, sweatshirts, hoodies and Henleys available in four colors and 18 different sizes.
