Tactical Tailor & Tru-Spec Partner To Leave No Ranger Behind

Tactical Tailor in partnership with Tru-Spec provided OCP uniforms to the Ranger Regiment for their 30th Anniversary Celebration in less than 72 hours. That’s impressive.

Tactical Tailor received a phone call from a PNW-based Ranger BN on Tuesday morning (30 SEP 14) shortly after we had run our first article stating that the 75th Ranger Regiment would be switching to OCP for garrison wear on the Regiment’s 30th (Battalion’s 40th) anniversary celebrated 3 OCT 14. The unit was in urgent need of duty uniform quality OCP’s as everything they had been issued in the past has been used as “field/deployment” uniforms.

Tactical Tailor immediately reached out to Kurt Wendling of Atlanco. Kurt determined that Tru-Spec had enough stock on hand to support the Ranger’s short fuse request.

The Tactical Tailor SOCOM sales manager and Tactical Tailor purchasing manager worked through the night of the 30th scrubbing the size manifest by name and quantity required in order to have all the pieces in place so that Kurt and his team could immediately pull and package the uniforms for shipment on 1 OCT 14.

Tru-Spec had the required uniforms on the ground and in the Rangers hands prior to 1200 PST on 2 OCT 14, leaving plenty of time to get parade ready for the 30th Anniversary celebration on 3 OCT 14. Tactical Tailor and Tru-Spec accomplished their mission. No Rangers were left behind and everyone was in the proper uniform, although apparently, not every OCP uniform worn by the Rangers on Friday was an FR ACU.

    THAT is American manufacturing.

    • Ron Dignard says:

      I believe that all of Atlanco/Tru-Spec’s stuff is actually made outside the US, i.e. Honduras.

      Still an impressive supply chain feat and kudos to Tactical Tailor and Atlanco/Tru-Spec for stepping above and beyond.

    • Chuck says:

      My point was to the “We can do it!” call to arms attitude of manufacturing that in my opinion we don’t see all that often anymore.

    Incredible story, and a great way to officially inaugurate OCP into active use…

  5. SN says:

    Impressive customer service.

    Sometimes I feel like Tac Tailor doesn’t get enough love. They are such a dedicated and passionate group there.

    Great story and only reinforces what I’ve come to expect from them.

    So the highly anticipated inaugural roll-out/adoption of the US Army’s premier camo pattern was accomplished outside of the US Army’s supply chain with a commercial vendor using commercial variants that were likely not Berry compliant?

  8. GW says:

    This was done as quickly as humanly possible due to the time zone differences and shipping across the US in a day. I am proud to have a dedicated staff, Nate Smith on this occasion, that can cut through the BS and steam roll road blocks. Thanks for all of the kind words.

    Strike Hold, the “quiet Professionals” statement has never been in my office for a Sales Meeting.
    Thanks Again to Tru-Spec for breaking their SOPs to see the importance of the need.

    For Patriots, By Patriots

      LOL – I know you guys aren’t quiet internally GW. I just meant that in the sense implied by the previous comment – you guys don’t go around blowing your own horns with splashy ad campaigns, etc. in the marketplace. You just get on and get the job done. 🙂

    Build a sick ass minibus. Or get a unimog. Please let me live vicariously through you.

    Kind of makes me wonder why it took so long for them to realize they needed new uniforms…
