9/4/2014 Salvo Technologies Creates Strategic Alliance with 4D Tactical

March 26, 2015

Seminole, FL Salvo Technologies LLC, a technology ­based private equity group, has created a strategic alliance with 4D Tactical LLC in a private deal with undisclosed terms. A leading manufacturer of innovative personal protective equipment (PPE), 4D Tactical complements Salvo Technologies, which has a well­established presence in the defense and security markets. “4D Tactical delivers best­ in­ class products using cutting ­edge technologies like nano materials to serve not only the defense market but other applications like consumer and medical,” said Patrick Bass, vice president for Salvo Technologies. “This fits our mission to not only become the go to supplier for the defense market but to also become a diversified technology supplier.”

In addition to 4D Tactical, Salvo Technologies encompasses multiple divisions including: Salvo Coatings LLC, Salvo Defense LLC, and Salvo Electro­Optics LLC (Salvo EO). All directly or indirectly serve the security, defense, and law enforcement markets, as well as other application areas. The strategic alliance with 4D Tactical creates important synergies highlighted by the overlap of both the engineering and sales organizations. Salvo Defense, for example, is already a licensed distributor of 4D Tactical PPE.  Salvo Defense sales specialists can bring deeper insights into the quality and manufacturing process while delivering experience­based input to the 4D Tactical R&D teams to improve current and future products.

“Teaming with Salvo Technologies gives us broader global reach and more comprehensive engineering resources to allow us to deliver quality gear to law enforcement, soldiers, athletes, and more,” said Heidi Dennis, vice president of operations at 4D Tactical. “We look forward to collaborating with our sister divisions to create even better products for a diversified customer base.”

4D Tactical will move into the Salvo Technologies Seminole, Florida building, along with Salvo Coatings, Salvo Defense, and Salvo EO.

4D Tactical specializes in the design and manufacture of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as retrofit helmet padding, blast­ and mine­resistant seating solutions, and improved individual body­armor systems and riot gear. With 20 years of experience developing best­in­class PPE for US DoD and law enforcement, the company will supports a variety of customers ranging from US Special Forces units to bull riders. Its product line runs from direct drop­in replacements and custom configurations, to private-labeled turnkey products for leading PPE manufacturers. All products are manufactured in the United States and under strict quality standards according to mil spec.
