Carrier Design Center

Carrier Design Center


Research and development are at the forefront of everything we do. Building the best carriers requires dedication, know-how, equipment and technology, materials, and a team all sharing the same mission – SAVING LIVES.

At our R&D Design Centers in Central Lake, MI and Eden, NC, the Carrier Design teams possess decades of manufacturing, operations and design experience. Our personnel leverage their knowledge of materials and technical applications to developed some of the most advanced lines of concealable, overt, plate, and tactical carrier solutions in the industry.

We are constantly changing for the better, with a focus on creating new products or enhancing existing ones. First, making these best-in-class solutions requires ongoing engagement with our customers and distribution partners about real-world experiences, and to better understand market needs, the pain points and any gaps in systems today. It is this engagement that drives innovation and ensures the wear-ability, comfort and safety of our carriers.

From conceptualization to prototypes to final solutions – we constantly adapt and incorporate the latest technologies and materials. From the latest cut-ting-edge sewing, fabricating and heat application technologies, to the lightest weight and highest-performing nylon and ballistic materials, we take every-thing into account before bringing a carrier to market. Every stitch matters and being detail-focused is an important element to deliver the highest product quality levels our customers demand and expect.
