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.

Sneak Peek – RMJ Tactical/Bawidamnn Ragnorak Hawk

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Bawidamann and RMJ are teaming up!

RMJ Tactical is teaming up with Bawidmann to present the “RAGNAROK” hawk which will be offered in both 12″ and 14″ versions. According to Bawidamann Blades, they’ve always been and always will be ardent RMJ TACTICAL Tomahawk fanboys and customers. Over the years they’ve have gone from fanboys to peers to friends and without Ryan Johnson there would be no PUP system. He machined the first kydex versions out gratis, to help Andrew get them off the ground when he had no start up capital. Bawidamann went on to say this about Ryan, “He is a Fine American and one hell of a designer/engineer. He makes the finest Hawk in the world in my opinion and we were super flattered that he wanted to collaborate with us to make some small, light, designer axes that are well…badass.”

RMJ Tactical Launches New Website

Friday, January 4th, 2013

20130104-073250.jpg

There’s an interesting story behind RMJ Tactical’s new website and it reflects how that company is run. They are people oriented and it shows when you meet them. Now, they’ve shown me a bit more of that in the development of tis website.

Alan Campbell is building the website for them. Apparently, he started working on it a little over a year ago, but before he was halfway complete, he was diagnosed with a tough strain of cancer. I’m happy to report that after months of radiation and chemotherapy he’s back at it and getting better every day. Although, he says its going to take him a little while longer to get the site exactly the way they want it. The point is, RMJ stuck by Alan in this. They could have gone a different direction and no one would have batted an eye, but they worked with the man to see it through.

The new site does the RMJ Tactical line of full tang tomahawks justice. It looks better, is easy to navigate, and gives you some cool insight into the brand. Check it out.
