Don Medine Leaves Safariland Group

The Safariland Group issued this statement regarding TCI founder Don Medine:

Dear Valued Customer,

After 18 years of engineering and producing high quality communications headsets, founder of Tactical Command Industries, Don Medine has decided to pursue other interests and will be departing from The Safariland Group.
Don and his wife Patty built TCI from the ground up alongside a group of law enforcement professionals. Under Don’s leadership, TCI became a company adept at both small custom integration projects as well as large defense procurement opportunities. With a continued passion for TCI, Don decided to sell his company to The Safariland Group in October of 2013 and align TCI’s communications systems with our well-positioned tactical offerings. Since then, Don has been instrumental in integrating TCI’s business into our Communications Category.

With the foundation that Don and Patty have built for TCI we are confident in a successful future for our line of communication products.
We thank Don for his contributions to the industry and wish him well in his future endeavors.

I’ve known Don a long time and wish him well in his next adventure.

    I hope this works out for EVERYONE involved: Don (thanks for your help back in ’05. And ’07. And ’09.), TCI’s existing customers. And Safariland.

    Have had the pleasure of working with Don and his firm for many years; wish him the best in whatever he does next. Hopefully Safariland will live up to the standard Don and crew set.

    TCI was built on some old school elbow grease and amazing customer service. Amazingly, every time I called TCI I was magically put through direct to Don. I’m here on the west coast and it would be 1900 on the east coast and Don would pick up the phone. How many high profile companies actually have their CEO pick up the phone? Don has nothing but good things in store and I wish him luck on the next adventure, be it retirement or a new business venture. And for Safariland, don’t screw up a good thing!

    I thank all of you for your posts and comments. It means more than you know. I look forward to talking to you guys again in the future. I am cooling my engine for a little while and will be anxious to continue the legacy in the industry, but from a different angle. Your loyalty and patronage means a lot and and am pleased to have been of service to each of you as the founder of TCI. Thanks again.
