August 02, 2010  | 

Combined Systems Inc. (CSI) has acquired Thompson Handcuffs Corp., a manufacturer of handcuffs and restraints located in Bedford Park, Ill. The acquisition will expand CSI's product and training solutions in its domestic and international sales channels.

"The inclusion of handcuffs and restraints is a great fit with our current product mix, customer base and marketing strategy," according to Don Smith, chief executive of CSI. "We look forward to growing the Thompson Handcuffs line of business through an added focus on sales and marketing."

Thompson Handcuffs Corporation has been developing, manufacturing and marketing a full line of handcuffs and restraints since 1985.

The company holds numerous patents and trademarks and was the first to market a variety of colored handcuffs as a system to assist corrections officers during prisoner transport.
