Canadian tactical and air-soft garments and accessories manufacturer The Requirements Group (TRG) has launched its European headquarters in the Netherlands in an effort to expand to the European market.
The company intends to stand out as a supplier of ‘premium Canadian grade’ products in the tactical and outdoors equipment market, which according to TRG is inundated with low grade, unreliable products.
According to the company, its products have been designed and tested by active and veteran tactical police, military and search & rescue (SAR) operators.
The products have been created to cater to the requirements of tactical and special forces operators.
The Requirements Group co-founder Glen Turpin said: “Unlike other manufacturers who start off in regular outerwear and then see an opportunity in the tactical and air-soft world, we stick to what has been second nature to us for the past 80 plus years in combined experience.”
“It would not be fair to the end user to have the products manufactured in a factory that one day produces load bearing tactical vests, and the next day dolls or nail clippers.
“This is why we invested so much into building our own factory where our dedicated expert workers and engineers focus on tactical kit every single day.”
The company will introduce its two brands in the Netherlands, Shadow Elite and Shadow Strategic, to cater to both agency and civilian markets.
As the owner of a factory, TRG sources and manufactures products in tune with its needs.
The company also noted that the factory will allow it to have stringent quality control and keep production costs under control.
It also offers customised uniforms and equipment with specific technical and camouflage pattern requirements.
