Velocity Systems Officially Announces the Acquisition of the Mayflower Research & Consulting Brand

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Dulles, VA – June 17, 2016 – Velocity Systems officially announces they acquired the Mayflower Research and Consulting Brand. For some of you this is not a new concept because Velocity Systems and Mayflower Research and Consulting have been operating as a team to collaboratively develop protective gear for the last 7 and a half years.

The need for the partnership occurred in 2008 when the demand for Mayflower gear was increasing exponentially and Travis Rolph’s services were needed by our country in a different capacity. While Travis continued to design all products under the Mayflower name, Velocity Systems began handling the logistics and manufacturing of all Mayflower products.

The decision was made that Velocity Systems and Mayflower were a good fit due to both companies’ dedication to produce quality products at the speed of need. Both companies were also committed to research and development and listening to feedback in order to create products tailored to fit the needs of the individuals that protect and serve our country. In January of 2014, Velocity Systems officially acquired the Mayflower Brand. Throughout the partnership and acquisition this dedication and commitment only grew stronger and has created a more competitive and efficient global provider of protective products, and solutions.

While the acquisition has not been a secret, the decision was made to wait a substantial period of time before making an official public announcement. Both brands have a loyal customer base and wanted to take the opportunity to prove the merge would only enhance the product offerings. David Strum, Velocity Systems President had this to say about the acquisition, “The joining of the two brands allowed us to leverage operating efficiencies and concentrate more on the end user’s needs. This created more time for research and development, and collaborative design opportunities. The change resulted in a more comprehensive portfolio featuring high-quality products with leading technology.”

Throughout the last 7 and a half years Dave Strum has remained the primary designer for Velocity Systems products and Travis Rolph has remained the primary designer for Mayflower Brand products. While the two specialize in their own niche, the merge has allowed them to work together collaboratively using their unique strengths to develop best-in-class designs.

Moving forward the Mayflower Brand will go by the name Mayflower R&C By Velocity Systems and can be purchased as product line under the Velocity Systems name. In order to more efficiently streamline the sales of Velocity Systems gear and the Mayflower R&C By Velocity Systems product line, Velocity Systems is launching a new website showcasing both under one roof. As of June 20, 2016 please visit www.velsyst.com to check out the new website.

Velocity Systems Announces New NSN for the Modified Operators Utility Belt

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016


In conjunction with the Australian based military and tactical distributor Southern Cross Equipment PTY LTD, Velocity Systems has developed a modified version of the Operators Utility Belt for the Australian Defence Forces that enables the belt to be worn with suspenders.

The Operators Utility Belt (OUB) was designed with a “less is more” approach. The OUB is narrower than other belts allowing for greater operator mobility while maintaining ample real estate to mount additional pouches and equipment. Its skeletonized insert ensures passive cooling and allows the belt to be at least 25% lighter than other comparable belts. The OUB can be worn with your existing riggers belt or the Velocity Systems “Enhance Variable Riggers Belt”.

Velocity Systems is excited to announce that the modified Operators Utility Belt has been given an official National Stock Number (NSN). The 13-digit NSN code is used to standardize and monitor a product allowing the United States Government, federal and civil agencies, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and many governments around the world to purchase the product directly from the company. NSNs allow the above mentioned groups to expedite the purchase of needed items and insure a standard for reordered items.

Southern Cross is the exclusive distributor of Velocity Systems Products in Australia, to contact them directly email, [email protected]. Additional information can be found at, www.southerncross.net.au. To learn more about Velocity Systems and their products please visit www.velsyst.com. To contact us directly please email [email protected]. All Velocity Systems Products are made in the USA and are Berry Amendment Compliant.
