Charlotte, NC August 19, 2020, Recon K9 announced today that they have selected Point Blank Enterprises (PBE) of Pompano Beach, FL as their official manufacturing partner for their K9 ballistics offering. Recon K9 is taking aim at the global tactical K9 market as they hone their focus on becoming the strongest and most sophisticated tactical K9 vest manufacturer for federal, law enforcement, and military working dog handlers.
"We've decided to really narrow our focus on doing what we do best, which is creating customer-centric K9 tactical vests that exceed the handler's expectations and mission requirements. When deciding on who to partner with regarding our ballistic offering it became apparent that Point Blank Enterprises was committed to the same vision we have for superior quality and attention to our customer's needs. They made our choice an easy one to make" stated Jason Watson, Founder and President of Recon K9 LLC. Watson began developing working dog equipment for USASOC (United States Army Special Operations Command) back in early 2013 while working for Remington where he developed Remington K9. Several years later when Remington changed course, Watson transferred his passion and his products to Capewell Aerial Systems to start their own K9 tactical manufacturing operation. After two corporate sales to private equity firms, Watson decided to take the reins and spin off his own company with the blessings and support of Capewell to start Recon K9. "I finally get to call all the shots with regards to the products and performance we put out to the market. Recon K9 is the culmination of my 14 years in K9 product development. It's more than a passion, it's a desire to create the most excuse free canine equipment that the market has experienced", Watson noted.
Jack Greenberg, a Director of Business Development for PBE said, "We're very excited to collaborate with Recon K9 on their ballistic offerings. They have tremendous expertise in K9 applications, and now coupled with our superior ballistic solutions, I believe it's a winning combo. We're excited to support the global working dog community in a bigger way."
