New Raine Inc. Production Facility In the Works

We are excited to show you the inside of Raine Inc.’s new production facility.  This was an article written on Soldier Systems to give you the details.

 Raine Inc To Open New Manufacturing Center

20MAR14 - What has been in the works for nearly a year is taking shape for Raine Inc. The addition of Scott Mello one year ago began the ball rolling for Raine Inc to look at a new state of the art manufacturing operation. With much deliberation, forethought, and careful consideration, Raine has decided Mayaguez, Puerto Rico will be the new home for these operations. Having previously ran Eagle Industries manufacturing operations in Mayaguez and collaborating with other companies on multiple manufacturing projects, Scott’s decision on the location came pretty easily.

Simply put, Raine has been growing considerably, and with that growth, relationships and programs are expanding simultaneously. With that advancement began a need for space and personnel capable of handling the expansion quickly, while increasing quality and production volume at the same time. The answer was simple in that the available personnel were a large factor in the decision making process. The skills of the people are what make Mayaguez a great tactical gear manufacturing area; they’ve been doing it for years. Their speed, accuracy, attention to detail, and quality put them at the top of the list in Raine Inc’s opinion. Something that we have found that is really exciting is that even though Scott hasn’t been operating there in a couple of years, the fondness and mutual respect has led many of Scott’s former staff and operators back to him. Scott is very excited to once again be part of these wonderful folk’s lives, and Raine Inc. is excited to build its new relationship with them as well.

Our new facility, which is approximately 24,000 square feet, is located in the same industrial park that has housed multiple heavyweights in the tactical gear manufacturing industry before. Raine Inc. has undertaken a very lengthy renovation of the facility and it is shaping up to be an outstanding place to work and make great kit. Construction is estimated to be completed in early April, and the new Raine PR will ramp up operations to start laying stitches end of April.

Take Away from 2014 SHOT Show

Raine Inc. exhibited  products at the annual January SHOT Show in Las Vegas.  This event showcases the product lines for several hundred exhibiting companies with heavy emphasis on new products developed over the last year.

Raine was in the Law Enforcement section of the show, which is the show’s fastest growing category.  When Ron James, Raine’s Business Manager, first started doing the show, we were one of the first companies to exhibit in the newly formed Law Enforcement section.  There was about thirty vendors on three aisles of floor space in the lower section of the Sands Convention Center.   This year, there were probably ten times the number from the first show taking up two ballrooms in the Palazzo Hotel and several convention meeting rooms in the lower level.  If you are a retailer of law enforcement items, a law enforcement professional or a military service member, you should try to attend one of these shows.

The floor traffic at this show was heavier than it has been for several years.  We hope this bodes well for a turn-around in our industry.  Even though our efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq are winding down, there was still a great deal of interest in our military gear; especially our new products in our Raine BLACK line.  If you haven’t had a chance to see those items, view them at www.raineblack.com.  There were a number of businesses interested in Raine doing custom work for them.  This is an important part of what we offer to our customers.   Our military business and product development guys (Will Romes and Dan Wilson) were quite busy all week talking to companies both foreign and domestic needing custom work. 

This year, for the first time, we shared our booth with another company, Outdoor Tactical Enterprises.  They distribute a solar charging system called the Power Traveler.  We are making a series of holders for their products which can be attached to vests, backpacks, etc.  Traffic was good for them and the cross-over was good for both of us.  We also highlighted a company located in Anderson, and showed their new tactical individual protection shield they have developed and are using a case we designed.  It was great to see a spirited reception of their product.

We hope this activity leads to good things for Raine, which will ultimately benefit our customers as well.  Great to see old friends and make new contacts!

Raine Inc. manufactures over 500 products- from nylon military field gear, law enforcement equipment, cell phone cases, radio cases, paramedic pouches, police duty gear, ID holders, equipment belts, holsters, sports bags to tool pouches for tough field use. 95% of Raine’s products are Made in the USA and Berry Compliant, more info can be found at: http://raineinc.com.

SHOT Show 2014 Going On

The Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade ShowSM (SHOT Show®) and Conference is going on now until January 17th.  Check out Raine Inc. BLACK at Booth #20656.

See the new Powertraveler covers Raine BLACK is doing for Powertraveler and OTE.

These covers are already rugged so we took a high-end fabric, minimalist approach and added our touch. The big cover is done with 4-way stretch Tweave, while the little one incorporates some of Raine BLACK’s laser cut Vector fabric.

Just ‘How Tough’ is Raine BLACK’s Vector?

Vector LCP Specs Thought Out by Raine BLACK

Vector LCP (Load Carry Platform) was created with two basic principles:

1.       Max durability: It had to be better than what was out on the market currently or what’s the point

2.       Max weight savings: we were able to achieve about 45% weight savings over a standard cut and sew MOLLE platform.

Vector LCP  is the brain-child of Will Romes, Marketing & Development Manager at Raine Inc.BLACK and close Raine Inc. associate Alex Gallo. It began with Will saying  “Hey I have an idea…” and Alex made it happen.

Some of the really interesting characteristics of the Vector fabric is that it is flash resistant, so it’s not going to melt and become a permanent second skin if you get flashed out. Second, it is completely hydro-phobic so it will shed any and all moisture it encounters. Third, it is anti-microbial so you don’t have to worry about it getting rotten and falling apart or stinking. Finally, Raine BLACK laser cuts these because not only is it so much more precise, but you can do any kind of modifications, punch holes, cut it, and nothing will come unraveled or fray…you don’t have to finish the edges of this because anywhere you cut it, it is already finished.

A couple of other items of note in Vector are the MOLLE channels.  Raine BLACK just flat out got rid of fabric that didn’t need to exist. “What’s your point!?”… Our point is that in doing so, it is made so much easier to weave your load carry pouches onto the platform. Simple lay your pouch face down on any surface, lay Vector LCP over the pouch MOLLE grid, and boom, everything falls out into nice wide open MOLLE weaving spaces. There’s no fighting or cursing, it’s simple.

To add to the material reduction party, a question Raine BLACK often gets is “Why don’t you camouflage it?”…2 reasons. First, we reduced the profile down so much that when you apply your load carry system to the platform, it becomes pretty irrelevant as your camo load covers the entire platform. Second, it costs money to do that and we were more interested in giving you guys a superior product in strength and weight at an affordable price. Additionally, we laid these out so the user can utilize the panel in conjunction with their armor system. They will merry up to any place carrier or body armor vest. When you get the Vector, it comes with a buckle kit so you can do that very thing without having to purchase anything extra, or modify anything.
