Wild Things Announces Jordanian Contract and Partnership

Wild Things, LLC, a manufacturer of technical outerwear and tactical gear for both men and women, will design uniforms for the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) and enter the footwear business through a licensing agreement with the Jordanian Company for Manufacturing Special Boots.

WT Tactical will sell and market its own brand of tactical boots internationally. WT Tactical CEO, Ed Schmults, signed these two agreements Wednesday in front of HM King Abdullah of Jordan at the Jordan – U.S. Business Forum in Amman.

“This is a key part of our business strategy to expand in the international marketplace,” said Schmults. “It makes strong business sense for a number of reasons — the Jordanian government is stable, there is a high quality, low cost apparel manufacturing infrastructure, and finally, these new partnerships enable us to expand outside of Jordan into the region and more broadly around the world.”

Utilizing WT Tactical’s extensive military apparel expertise, the Jordanian uniforms will feature enhanced fit and functionality, advanced fabric to enhance comfort across a broad range of temperatures and will provide a range of product options to meet the needs of the JAF. In addition, WT Tactical will begin production of a portion of its current military product line in Jordan for export to the international military community.

In addition, WT Tactical will begin to design, market and sell footwear for the international military and law enforcement community via a licensing agreement with The Jordanian Company for Manufacturing Special Boots at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Jordan. WT Tactical has begun discussions with boot designers to begin work on a next generation boot that will include new phase-change impact absorbing foams and other technical design features.

The first apparel lines will be ready by late 2011 with the footwear following later in 2012.
