Point Blank Enterprises Acquires Gould and Goodrich

Now offers complete system of protection, apparel and duty gear

Pompano Beach, FL – April 28, 2017 – Point Blank Enterprises (“Point Blank” or “PBE”), the worldwide leader in the production of soft and hard body armor and related protective solutions, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Gould and Goodrich (“G&G”). Point Blank Enterprises is currently the premier source of body armor systems in the world, with 44 years of experience providing innovative personal protection products to the public safety community and military. PBE recently announced the merger with First Tactical to meet the needs of public safety professionals with new, innovative ideas in apparel, footwear and accessories. With today’s acquisition of G&G, the combined forces of PBE will now provide the latest in protection, apparel and duty gear.

For more than 30 years, Gould & Goodrich has served law enforcement departments, federal agencies, and private firearm owners in more than 20 countries. G&G offers a full line of leather, ballistic nylon, and synthetic duty belts, holsters, and accessories, and is recognized throughout the industry as a leader in quality, durability, and customer service. All G&G products are proudly “Made in the USA” at the company’s manufacturing facility in central North Carolina.

“We are very excited to become part of the expanding Point Blank platform. Our company has built its reputation by providing high quality, durable products through world class customer service, and I am very pleased to see it become part of an organization with the same commitment to excellence. G&G’s products are a natural fit for Point Blank, and I look forward to working with them to broaden our reach, expand our product line, and most importantly, serve our customers well,” said Scott Nelson, President of G&G.

At PBE the mission is to protect and enhance the lives of public safety personnel by providing the highest quality protective solutions in the world. Commenting on the exciting acquisition, Daniel Gaston, Chief Executive Officer of PBE said, “We accomplish this by driving innovation and exceeding customer expectations. G&G will enhance our position as the global leader in public safety equipment with their holsters and duty gear while we maintain our absolute commitment to our customers.”

Considering PBE just announced a merger with First Tactical, this is some very big news. Looks like someone is working to rival Safariland as the one-stop shop.

    Thank God! Maybe now the ridiculously stupid G&G holsters we are issued will be discontinued and a certain Federal Agency will actually have to think about the type of gear and equipment they issue!
