Constellis Announces Acquisition of AMK9

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Transaction Expands Constellis’ Capability to Train and Deploy K-9 Teams Globally, Enhances Ability to Provide Competitive Pricing to its Key Customers

RESTON, Va. (June 23, 2017) — Constellis, a leading provider of operational support and risk management services, announced today that it has acquired American K9 Detection Services, LLC (“AMK9”). The acquisition of AMK9, a leader in K-9 security services, sales and training around the world, significantly enhances Constellis’ capability to train and deploy K-9 teams globally.

As part of the transaction, ITC Capital Partners, AMK9’s former owner, has exited its stake in AMK9. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Constellis financed the acquisition with incremental 1st lien term loan borrowings under Constellis’ existing credit facility.

The transaction brings together the leader in K-9 detection services with one of the industry’s premier safety and risk management providers serving a broad range of customers, including U.S. government agencies (notably the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Energy), foreign governments, NGOs and a diverse mix of blue-chip commercial entities. Additionally, the deal furthers Constellis’ ongoing strategies to diversify its service lines and to vertically integrate. Constellis will be able to leverage the combined entity’s scale, training facilities, shared best practices and financial resources to continue to offer its customer base competitive pricing while utilizing the industry’s most revered compliance programs.

Headquartered in West Point, Georgia, AMK9 has more than 300 employees operating across the U.S., the Middle East and Africa. AMK9 has an established track record of providing Contract Working Dog (CWD) teams to protect federal facilities, personnel and assets, having worked with the U.S. military to develop and implement industry standards for CWD teams. The company offers turn-key program management solutions to supplement government agencies and multi-national corporations in high-risk environments across the globe.

“AMK9’s well-respected brand and exceptional past performance bring tremendous value to our combined offering,” said Jason DeYonker, Chief Executive Officer of Constellis. “The acquisition of AMK9 allows us to diversify our training service line while also enhancing our ability to provide our customers with the best full-service solution at a competitive price.”

Find Out If You Or A Loved One Qualify For VA Wartime Benefits

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

VA pension is a needs-based benefit for wartime Veterans with limited or no income who are age 65 or older. Those who have a permanent and total non-service-connected disability may also qualify. In addition, Veterans who are housebound or require an aid to perform daily activities may qualify for pension at an increased rate.

Like Jim, a Korean War Veteran who has Alzheimer’s and needs care 24/7. His sons found the help their family needed through VA pension benefits.

Using the financial support from Jim’s pension benefits, the family hired an aid to take care of Jim on a daily basis. With the help of a caregiver, Jim and his wife are able to stay in their house and get the services they need.

“Just knowing somebody is there in the morning to help to start their day and help with their daily activities is a real relief for our family,” says James, Jim’s oldest son.

Tim, Jim’s youngest son, says the money has been a godsend. “It has helped my mother and my dad. It relieves a lot of pressure and stress on us as a family.”

TNVC Announces Amazing New Warranty Program

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

June 20, 2017
For Immediate Release
From the desk of Victor Di Cosola (President/CEO, TNVC, Inc.)

TNVC, Inc is thrilled to announce a new ten year warranty on all TNV/PVS-14 Night Vision Monoculars and five year warranty on all TNV/Sentinel and MOD-3B Night Vision Goggles.

TNVC, the industry leader in professional grade night vision equipment, builds the most trusted night vision devices for law enforcement professionals and serious commercial end users. Using the highest grade new-production Gen3 image intensification tubes from both L-3 and Harris, along with the same MILSPEC housings and lens systems that go down range with American Warfighters, the TNV line of PVS-14, Sentinel, and MOD-3B NVG’s is second to none. As such, TNVC Inc has decided that all TNV/PVS-14’s will be warranted for a period of ten years after purchase and TNV/Sentinel and MOD-3B systems will now be fully warranted for five years after purchase. We are so confident in the quality of our components, that we are willing to guarantee our NVG’s for an extended period. This warranty covers the entire NVG, including image tube, system components, and lenses, insuring that the unit will be free of manufacturer’s defects. If the NVG fails due to manufacturer’s defect, TNVC will repair or replace at no cost to the customer.

The extended warranty covers manufacturer defect only. It will not cover physical damage to the system due to misuse, negligence, or abuse, nor will it cover damage to the image intensifier tube from light damage, laser exposure, or recoil damage from weapon mounting to higher than posted ratings.

What’s more, we are extending this longer warranty to customers who purchased a TNV/PVS-14, TNV/Sentinel, or MOD-3B on or after June 20, 2016. The legendary TNV-branded NVG’s already have the best reputation on the market. We figure they ought to have a warranty to match.

We want to personally thank each and every TNVC customer who has trusted us to deliver the best night vision gear and information on the market. We will continue to deliver the best products and education, while providing the best customer support in the night vision industry.
