U.S. Armor Corp. has announced the opening of its new Southeastern Regional Service Center, establishing a dedicated distribution and marketing facility for the Southeast United States.

The Metro-Atlanta facility has been strategically located in Fayetteville, Ga., and will serve U.S. Armor customers in the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. The company says the new Center will join with U.S. Armor’s primary manufacturing facility and headquarters in Cerritos, Calif., to further support and extend the reach of the company’s business development and enhance the value of its customer service efforts.

Mr. Armellino stated: “ We are very excited about opening the Southeastern Regional Service Center, as it will help to expand our efforts to “bridge the gap” between our West Coast manufacturing facility and our valued customers on the other side of the country, allowing us to bring our outstanding products and superior customer service directly to the end-users in the regions where they all work very hard to keep our communities and our country safe.”

Respected law enforcement equipment industry veteran Carl Schaapman Jr. has been named to direct the operations of this expansion to U.S. Armor’s service and distribution capabilities and brings his professional expertise gleaned from more than 25 years of experience in the body armor industry and the Southeastern market to the new regional center.

The Dixie Marketing Associates staff of five Field Representatives and their office support staff will become the manufacturer’s representatives for the region and will be responsible for the development and support of an expanded distributor and dealer network to better serve U.S. Armor’s customers in this key market.
