Original Footwear Purchases Altama and Wellco Footwear Brands

August 27, 2014  | 

Original S.W.A.T.'s parent company, Original Footwear, has purchased the majority of the assets of Tactical Holdings and Operations Inc. as of August 15th, 2014. Most notably this includes the Wellco and Altama companies—brands with a wealth of history, research, and footwear technology.

These footwear brands have served military personnel for generations and will live on next to the Original S.W.A.T. brand of performance tactical boots, according to Original Footwear. As a first priority, the company is consolidating manufacturing at its facility in Morristown, Tenn., and ramping up U.S.A. production.

"Our unwavering mission is to create the most reliable military and law enforcement boots on the market, and ensure our availability standards are met," a company press release says. "Combining Original S.W.A.T's consistent quality and value with Wellco and Altama's unique understanding of military needs, we are confident that the end results will far exceed our customers' expectations."

"We look forward to continuing to service the many global customers of these two storied brands. I am confident that the combined expertise on both sides is going to lead to the most revolutionary product these markets have ever seen," said Kevin Cole, CEO and Owner.
