The Safariland Group, a global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, has acquired Tactical Command Industries, Inc. (TCI), a communications integration business focused on tactical communications systems, including customized and commercial off the shelf headsets and audio solutions. TCI operates out of facilities located in Brentwood, California and Gilmanton, New Hampshire.

TCI was founded in 1996 by a group of law enforcement professionals with extensive experience in tactical training and mission work. Having skilled operators at the forefront of TCI’s product development programs, they are adept at both small custom integration projects as well as large defense procurement opportunities. The TCI acquisition is consistent with the Company’s strategic focus on expanding its portfolio of brands with top-quality product offerings and pursuing businesses aligned with its mission of “Together, We Save Lives.”

“The addition of the TCI tactical communications line to our business allows us to expand our offerings to our core tactical customer, while at the same time positioning the brand for growth through our distribution network, both in the US and internationally,” said Scott O’Brien, President of The Safariland Group. “TCI will be a great addition to our tactical product offerings and complements our PROTECH Tactical armor brand, a technological leader in protective tactical hard and soft armor. Furthermore, TCI’s customized solutions for the special needs of tactical teams distinguishes them from competitors and is consistent with our commitment to be the premier solutions provider to our customers.”

The Safariland Group, acquired by an affiliate of Kanders & Company, Inc. in July 2012, is expanding its portfolio of brands and pursuing acquisitions aligned with its mission of “Together, We Save Lives.” With several manufacturing operations both domestically and internationally, The Safariland Group provides 23 industry brands to customers worldwide.
