The Camo Wars Heat Up – Crye Precision Sues Duro Textiles For IP Infringement

Friday, November 14th, 2014

On 12 November 2014, Crye Precision filed suit in New York Southern District Court against Duro Textiles, LLC claiming IP infringement. While we have no further details, we can only wonder if this isn’t a step by Crye to protect their IP in the interest of their current licensees. And, we must wonder if this move isn’t somehow connected to the unresolved royalty situation with the US Army. Crye Precision has not responded to requests for comment, however considering this is an ongoing legal dispute we would be surprised to hear from them.

DSM Dyneema Wins 2014 Worldsafe Award For Development Of Dynemma Force Multiplier Technology

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Safe America Foundation honors groundbreaking material for life-saving protective gear

Stanley, N.C. – Nov. 13, 2014 – DSM Dyneema, a world leader in life protection materials and high-performance fibers, has won the 2014 WorldSafe Safety Product Innovation Award from the Safe America Foundation™ for the development of Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology. The award was presented to Hugh Welsh, president of DSM North America, on Saturday, Nov. 8 during the Safety on the Home Front Gala at the Delta Flight Museum in Atlanta. Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology delivers exceptional ballistic performance and the lightest weight and lowest profile for armor applications.

Safe America Foundation™ Chief Executive Officer Len Pagano said this groundbreaking platform “will dramatically improve both personal body armor and vehicle armor used by police and military personnel worldwide. The life-saving protection that Dyneema® has and continues to provide is incalculable.”

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award for our Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology, which is making a meaningful difference in the safety of law enforcement officers and soldiers,” said Welsh. “This innovative material is already demonstrating its superior ballistic performance, ultra light weight and enhanced comfort in protective gear. We take pride in leading the life protection industry with visionary solutions to safeguard those in harm’s way.”

Built on the company’s Radical Innovation Platform, Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology combines breakthroughs in polymer science, next-generation ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMwPE) fiber technology and unique uni-directional engineering. This platform avoids the traditional compromise between ballistic protection and light weight, offering top performance in both areas. Compared to body armor made from other materials, protective vests engineered with Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology can reduce weight by up to 30 percent, while enhancing comfort and agility with fewer layers of material.

RMJ Tactical Purchases New Equipment, Expands Office And Factory Space

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

RMJ Tactical has recent announced an expansion of their office and factor space, accompanying the purchase of a new manual lathe and mill. The full release can be read below:

Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) November 05, 2014

RMJ Tactical recently expanded their existing building to include additional office and factory space. This expansion project has doubled the size of their production space, which in turn will expedite production operations, allowing them to manufacture tactical tomahawks more efficiently. New support equipment, a manual lathe and mill, was purchased in September for the expanded production space.

Office and shop equipment was moved in small stages beginning on October 20. RMJ Tactical is eager to complete the set up and reorganization of the new space over the course of the next two weeks.

“Setting up the new shop has taken us out of production for about three weeks, but with the new space our production lines are much more clean and much more efficient. We anticipate that this will increase our efficiency and let us produce higher quality and higher numbers,” says Richard Carmack, Chief Operations Officer.

RMJ Tactical’s original space was approximately 1,800 square feet, with nearly 1,500 square feet dedicated to production and the remainder as office space. The new expansion project has created an additional 600 more square feet of office space, and nearly 2,000 more square feet of shop floor. The shop floor now has a designated heavy machine area where the new equipment is located, as well as a finishing area.

According to Carmack, expansion of the shop floor was done in an effort to expand RMJ Tactical’s services and further streamline their production processes for all of their products. RMJ Tactical sells their products both nationally and internationally, with customers hailing from as far as South Korea. “We ship to 22 countries around the world,” Carmack states.

During the reorganization phase of the expansion project, RMJ Tactical allows visitors to view the new space on Thursday afternoons.

“We love it when people come in and see us working in the shop. The move has put a halt on visiting and tour days, but we’re hoping to bring this back sometime mid November,” says Carmack.
