Mission Ready Announces PTF Manufacturing

Mission Ready Services Inc has announced a new manufacturing division, PTF Manufacturing Inc, located in Jacksboro, Tennessee.

Jeff Schwartz, who some of you may remember from LC Industries,will run PTFM which will offer tactical outerwear, canine armor, bomb suits/blankets, riot control protection, carriers, textiles with integrated electronics and ballistic panels.

“The PTF Manufacturing team brings significant value to our existing and future relationships through a wealth of skills and experience that will enable us to efficiently deliver quality, custom tactical and armor products,” states Rod Reum, President & CEO of Mission Ready Services Inc. “The ability to manufacture the products we have developed will allow us to retain margins internally, bid more competitively, control quality and preserve our know how.”

They’ve already established over 30 dealers, and I’m looking forward to seeing the technologies they’ve developed, like the Ballistic Combat Shirt, brought to market.

The choice of establishing manufacturing in Tennessee, was wise. Many textile manufacturers are located in Tennessee. In their case, they’re located in a Tennessee HubZone (Historically Underutilized Business Zone) and they’ve been offered tax credits and business incentives which could amount to over $1 Million in the first year alone.
