Protect The Force, LLC

Protect the Force, LLC announced today the formation of their new company as a result of merger of Government Sales Group and Protect the Force. The new company is unique in that it focuses its considerable experiences and relationships on helping manufacturers of personal protective products and equipment streamline and accelerate the processes of development, fielding, contracting, and commercialization of products into the first responder and military segments of the U.S. Government.

The merger doubles the size of the company and adds a number of respected international manufacturer’s to its customer ranks. Clients include: Air Systems, Bright Star, Cocona, Crye Precision, Elkhart Brass, Higher Dimension Materials, Honeywell First Responder Products, Hurst Jaws of Life, Kappler, Lenzing Fibers International, Scott Health & Safety, Tencate Defense and Tactical, and Trident One.

“Our nation’s warriors and first responders deserve the very best life saving and performance enhancing technologies now. Our team knows firsthand what can happen when we fail in this essential mission. We have assembled a group of quality U.S. manufacturers who are committed to this cause”, noted Clay Williamson, Protect the Force President. Mr. Williamson, a recently retired Army Acquisition Corps Officer, started Protect the Force after years of working to better protect soldiers against the devastating effects of burn injury.

The two companies became acquainted after working together for a mutual customer. The company’s CEO, Mr. Gary Hess indicated that the merger was an obvious path to take. “Government Sales Group had significant expertise in the areas of sales and marketing within the Federal first responder markets and was looking to expand into other federal government markets. With this merger we have successfully accomplished this goal and have added significant capabilities and deep relationships in the areas of military research & development, product fielding and program level acquisition”.

Protect the Force is led by an impressive group of executives. In addition to Mr. Hess and Mr. Williamson, the Company announced that Mr. Bobby Feigler will continue in the role of Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Feigler brings significant corporate and early stage company experience to the team.
