CORTAC™ Signs Exclusive Partnership with The Safariland Group®
Teaming with the Global Leader in Safety and Survivability Products
HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – CORTAC announces they have secured an exclusive distribution and OEM integration agreement with The Safariland Group, the manufacturers of Second Chance®, ABA®, Protech Tactical® and Safariland Ballistics International® brands of body armor. The agreement grants The Safariland Group exclusive CTAV OEM integration into armor carrier systems and CTAV Retrofit Kit™ and Shirt Carrier System (SCS)™ distribution rights for the United States Law Enforcement market, both state and local.
The CTAV combines the power of Advanced Impact Resistance technology (AIR)™ and the science of EverDryTM to significantly enhance the comfort of wearing concealable vests, outer vest carriers and tactical body armor, while also providing an additional layer of protection from ballistic and non-ballistic blunt trauma.
“The CTAV is a proven technology that will have a huge impact in the body armor market. CORTAC has solved the age-old problem of excessive body heat being trapped between armor and the body. Officers are often in adverse conditions such as extreme heat so the CTAV really is a game changer when it comes to comfort. We are very excited to partner with CORTAC to offer this technology to our customers,” said Todd Mackler, The Safariland Group Vice President of Armor.
“We are excited that The Safariland Group will be co-branding and providing sales and distribution for the United States Law Enforcement sector,” said Mike Letterman, CEO of CORTAC. “Their distribution system, combined with our CTAV product line, significantly strengthens our mutual ability to put the CTAV into the hands of law enforcement and corrections personnel, where it is greatly needed.” Letterman also added, “This paves the way for The Safariland Group and CORTAC to work closely on other military and international projects.”
