SENTRY Products Group Announces the Acquisition of Hexmag

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

When every shot counts, end users trust Hexmag™

Virginia Beach, Va. (October 2017) – SENTRY Products Group, an industry leader in the Military, Law Enforcement and Outdoor equipment, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Hexmag™, innovators of AR-15/AR-10 magazines and accessories.

When Hexmag was founded, it introduced lightweight magazines for the AR-15/AR-10 platforms.

“We set out to make the most durable, versatile and aesthetic magazine on the market,” stated Aaron Schefter, founder of Hexmag. He continued, “With great acceptance and a strong end user following, the company rapidly expanded and SENTRY was the logical partner to continue the product development. When the SENTRY crew were executives at BLACKHAWK!®, they really loved and understood product development and manufacturing and that is what I want for the future of Hexmag’s products.”

Built in the USA and backed with a lifetime warranty, Hexmag’s products are manufactured using a proprietary fiber-reinforced polymer, PolyHex2, resulting in a lighter and more durable magazine. The patented hexagonal surface provides superior grip and ease of handling. Hexmag’s HexID Color Identification System allows end users to quickly personalize magazines to identify different ammunition calibers. Product line extensions include grips, rail covers and grip tape allowing end users to further customize their gear.

“We are proud to add Hexmag products to our company offerings; their innovative approach to product design and marketing fits well and extends our presence in the Military, Law Enforcement, Tactical and OEM markets,” said Terry Naughton, President of SENTRY Products Group. He continued, “This addition creates new US based jobs as manufacturing and distribution moves to SENTRY’s Boise, Idaho facility and core business functions move to the Virginia Beach, Virginia U.S.A. headquarters.”

“The acquisition of Hexmag fits perfectly with SENTRY’s short, medium and long-term vision of both organic growth, as well as growth through acquisition,” said Mike Noell, CEO of SENTRY. “Hexmag was an easy plugin to our accessories business and gives SENTRY additional product categories, sales channels, new distribution partners and an entrance into the high-tech injection molded product arena. We are now focused on operational excellence, great products and awesome service. Thank you for your trust and business, we look forward to serving you!”

CANSOFCOM Seeks New Uniforms

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

There lots of money being pumped into updating the clothing used by CANSOFCOM. First, we mentioned the new Distinctive Environmental Uniform unveiled during CANSEC. It is a dress uniform based on the Pinks and Greens worn by members of the World War Two-era Devil’s Brigade, a combined commando unit made up of American and Canadian troops.

IMG_2284

Then, back in August we reported on the Advanced Special Operations Forces Combat Uniform. In September, Public Works and Government Services Canada released a tender for a two-piece FR Flight Suit in MultiCam for SOF aircrews. But their latest requirement may be the most interesting. Issued on October 2nd, the tender seeks manufacturers for Special Operations Forces Distinctive Service Uniform (SDSU). Essentially, they want MultiCam variants of the standard Canadian combat clothing called the Enhanced Combat Uniform, which normally features the CADPAT print. If the name means anything, these will likely be worn as garrison uniforms while the Advanced SOF Combat Uniforms will be used in combat as well as during combat focused training.  The SDSU will help tie the command to the Canadian Forces, yet offer them their distinctive use of the MultiCam pattern.  These will likely supplant the Peerless Garment manufactured uniforms, currently worn in garrison by members of the command and also be worn at service schools.

The tender seeks bids for SDSUs manufactured in both the 50/50 NYCO used in American uniforms as well as a 100% Nylon fabric. There is also a placeholder in the solicitation for a DND supplied fabric. Below are drawings of the ECU uniform cut.  

All of this is in the heals of a procurement of new cold weather clothing, issued last year.

CANSOFCOM is considered the fourth Canadian Armed Forces environment; essentially, a service unto itself. Despite cuts to the Canadian Department of National Defense, the command looks to add over 600 new personnel in the near future, along with an increase of $1.5 billion to their budget over the coming years.

To summarise, once this all done, CANSOFCOM will have their own versions of Dress Uniform (DEU), Garrison Uniform (DSU), Combat Uniform (ACU) Flight Suit and Environmental Ensemble.

ADS Inc – First Annual UAS + Counter UAS Industry Day

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

ADS Inc is presenting their First Annual UAS + Counter UAS Industry Day on November 7th & 8th at the Military Aviation Museum in Va Beach.

9BC94C45-343C-4893-9B68-9EA43A2FABBB

This is a very interesting topic for me. New capabilities roll out regularly for Unmanned Aerial Systems. But maybe even more important, drones have become the number one asymmetric threat due to their wide proliferation. Their payloads increase while their cost goes down making them a solution of choice for adversaries seeking low-cost ISR and precision weapons. Developing an adaptable strategy to counter them is critical.

During the two-day event, vendors will present eight, one-hour sessions to educate attendees on their technologies.

This event is not open to the public.

Hope to see you there. To sign up and to review the daily schedule, visit adsinc.com/event/drone-day-2017.

Post Falls, ID.

Whether as a manufacturer or service provider, a buyer, or a patriot there is a way for everyone to be part of this great movement!

The evet will also host two specific silent auctions – 1. Benefitting the FLEOA Foundation, and 2. Benefitting three identified heroes – a Veteran, a First Responder, and a Patriot from the Las Vegas shooting.

“We had such a great time last Jan, with some of the best Patriot owned companies and brands in the industry! This year we are experiencing huge growth as we expand exhibitor space to over 175 spots. Those companies looking for a way to get their products in front of the top media and commercial buyers in the industry as well as Government, Law Enforcement and International have no better place to exhibit and demo their products that this event!” – stated Rob Hephner, Board Member of Anteris Alliance. “On top of having a great buyers and media event, we will end the night with a whole heck of a lot of fun with some great musicians and an after party at the Pro Gun Club clubhouse!”
