Benchmade, Darn Tough, Armor Express, ESS Eyewear, Sig Sauer, Predator War Paint, Mechanix Wear Gloves, Hesco, Multimat, Streamlight, XGO, Proforce, Snugpak, Gerber, Ops Core, Fifty-Fifty, Rite in the Rain, Magpul, SOG Knives, Petzl, Crye Precision, Wiley X, Aimpoint, Maglite, Suunto, S&S Precision, ArcTeryx, LED Lenser, Leatherman, Soloman, Revision Eyewear, Kysek Coolers, Pelican, Goal Zero, Source Hydration, Smart Wool, Under Armour, Oakley, Smith and Wesson, Danner, Gripod and Camelbak.

High Threat Concealment & Rogue Gunfighter Join TAG for SOFIC 2013

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Be sure to visit HTC, Rogue Gunfighter and TAG at next week’s SOFIC in Booth #951. At SHOT Show their booth was swamped and I couldn’t get a word in edgewise to talk to them. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to catch up with them at SOFIC.

Following up on their debut at this year’s National Shooting Sports Foundation’s SHOT Show, High Threat Concealment will be partnering again with Rogue Gunfighter, LLC and Tactical Assault Gear (TAG – by Durham, North Carolina based LC Industries) at the 2013 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC).

High Threat Concealment™ specializes in the development of low-profile / high capability tactical gear for close protection and low-visibility operations in restrictive or non-permissive environments. Last year, HTC™ joined forces with LC Industries (who owns Tactical Assault Gear) in a partnership to expand and enhance manufacturing capabilities and distribution potential. As an industry leader in providing career opportunities for the blind and visually impaired, LC Industries brings a unique combination of talents and expertise in providing quality products and services for the US government and its component agencies.

This unique partnership with LCI and low-visibility innovators such as Rogue Gunfighter, HTC™ is poised to address the ever-increasing demand for products designed around current tactics favoring a reduced tactical profile in both domestic law enforcement and throughout current theaters of war.

Look for High Threat Concealment™ products, available now through the Tactical Assault Gear Store, and stop by Booth #951 at SOFIC to see the latest products from HTC™, Rogue Gunfighter and TAG.”

SSD Visits LC Industries

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

If you are in the military or employed by the federal government then you have almost daily contact with LC Industries. Begun in 1936 by the Durham Lions Club, LC Industries employs about 400 legally blind workers in 12 states. They manufacture over 2000 products, many of which you will recognize. In fact, regardless of what type of unit or organization you belong to, everyone relies on the same basic commodities to get the job done. From file folders to flatware, LC Industries products provide a positive impact on the lives of our troops.

During our recent visit to LC Industries’ primary facility in Durham, North Carolina we were afforded an opportunity to tour the production floor and get a behind the scenes look at what makes LC Industries tick.

20120724-115226.jpg

First and foremost, it’s their employees. At each work station you’ll see name plates for each of the workers. What is amazing is that next to each name is the number of years they have been with LC Industries. it’s not uncommon to see employees who’ve been on the job for 20, 30, or even 40 years. This means that it’s a very well trained work force. To provide testimony to that assertion, we noticed this sign. 692 days without accident. Fantastic!

20120724-115154.jpg

You’d be amazed at what LC Industries manufactures. We came across this machine producing salt and sugar packets for use in MREs.

20120724-115449.jpg

In another area, we noticed a large stock of series 5200 Master Locks in various stashes of production. Everybody uses those locks. We are told that Master Lock has moved production of several models used extensively by DoD back to the US from Mexico and entrusted this endeavor to LCI. It’s a perfect fit for their work force, with repetitive assembly operations of various parts. This is a big success story for Master Lock, LCI and the troops who will be using quality, American made products.

20120724-115946.jpg

In another area workers were manufacturing mattresses that would be used by troops at nearby Fort Bragg. LCI has developed a process to reclaim old mattresses by burning away the materials which leaves a sterilized coil and frame. After inspection many can be remanufactured. This green initiative saves resources and money not to mention critical landfill space.

LCI purchased Tactical Assault Gear in 2010. Their raw materials are stored at their Durham facility and pre-cut materials kits are assembled there based on the bills of material for various products and shipped to their sewing facilities for final assembly.

They put their Gerber cutter to good use.

20120724-120817.jpg

Next, we visited the Integrated Custom Design Center.

20120724-120957.jpg

Here, they showcase the tactical products offered in the Base level LCI stores. You’ll notice many familiar brands.

20120724-121129.jpg

20120724-121151.jpg

This space also houses their prototype facility. There was a lot going on and hopefully we’ll be asked to unveil some of those products once they are ready.

20120724-121218.jpg

Its amazing how many products we saw in production on the floor. Over and over again we kept saying, “I remember using those.” Also, it’s great to see Americans manufacturing products. That’s the lifeblood that built this country.

The visit to LC Industries was very impressive and we look forward to seeing new products from Tactical Assault Gear soon.
