FirstSpear Unveils New Product Line at Warrior Expo

Today, FirstSpear, a warfighter tactical equipment designer and manufacturer, has announced its line of 60 Enhanced Load Carriage Solutions and Personal Protective Equipment products. This debut line is the first complete portfolio of the company’s spectrum of Warfighter equipment, and is expected to be received with great customer interest.

FirstSpear designs are produced with direct input from the end user and by developers who take into account specific mission needs, resulting in innovative, capability-driven products. The FirstSpear production facility is located in Fenton, MO, and this new venture has lead to the creation of 50 local skilled manufacturing jobs with plans to continue this growth in the near term.

FirstSpear’s commitment to delivering solutions based on the user’s needs is demonstrated by the careful selection of materials and a deep understanding of the unique mission needs of American Warfighters. Like all items in the line, plate carrier platforms such as the Beat Up are lightweight and functional, reflecting input from professional users. Each technology is the result of over 30 years of product development experience by the FirstSpear Design Team and represents the next generation in mission-ready gear.

“By considering the entire system as a whole, we have designed a suite of products that work great alone, but together allow the user to achieve remarkable scalability, modularity and weight reduction,” said Jonathan Laplume, FirstSpear Vice President of Strategy. “With each new product release, FirstSpear will seek the input of the professional user to continue raising the bar in equipment comfort, accessibility and durability.”

“When we started this organization, we made a commitment to deliver the next generation in Personal Protective Equipment,” said Scott Carver, Founder and President of FirstSpear. “This launch is only the beginning. FirstSpear directly supports those who defend this country and we will continue on this path of innovation for years to come.”
