Tac­ti­cal ar­mor. The term con­notes safety, func­tion and cut­ting-edge in­no­va­tion … all of which are crit­i­cal for the mod­ern warfighter to do his/ her job safely and ef­fi­ciently. To cre­ate this tech­nol­ogy, it re­quires a di­verse group. At Team Wendy, for ex­am­ple, the back­grounds in­clude chem­i­cal, me­chan­i­cal and elec­tri­cal engi­neer­ing, as well as in­dus­trial de­sign, op­er­a­tions and qual­ity con­trol man­age­ment. Staff mem­bers in­clude mil­i­tary, U.S. gov­ern­ment vet­er­ans and out­door en­thu­si­asts. The “line-up” is very much the same for U.S. Ar­mor.

In essence, both com­pa­nies have cre­ated a “Dream Team.” Un­like pro­fes­sional sports’ dream teams, how­ever, there is much more on the line than wins and losses. These two com­pa­nies fo­cus on sav­ing lines.

Wel­come to the world of ar­mor.
