Ultimate Survival Technologies Sells Commercial/Recreation Division to              Revere Supply


January 25, 2011
For Immediate Release:

Ultimate Survival Technologies (UST) of Monroe, Washington, has just announced the sale of its Recreation/Commercial Division to Revere Supply Co, Inc. of Jacksonville, Florida. The acquisition of the division will give UST the opportunity to solely focus on their military and law enforcement sales channels, with capital to expand current research and development initiatives in body armor, CBRNE defense, tactical gear and mobility systems. 

The acquisition includes the assets of UST’s line of personal safety and survival tools, including patented all-weather fire starting systems, targetable and unbreakable signal mirrors, a premium outdoor saw, a low profile whistle, an ultralight emergency stove, and kits in which the tools are combined.  Revere Supply has acquired all outdoor recreation sales channels.  UST will be rebranding itself to further define its service to the military and law enforcement marketplace, and will be retaining sales of the survival tools to these customers. 

“We are very excited about what this means for our customers,” said Chris Venti, President and CEO of UST.  Revere is a well-established company with a great track record for customer service and a vast history in the survival and recreation industries.  This transition will put us in an even stronger position to continue to innovate for and focus on our military and government customers."

Revere President Andrew Kaufmann said this about the purchase:  Revere is focused on growing our business in the outdoor, aviation and leisure marine markets.  We see the purchase of UST’s Recreational Division as a key acquisition that will help us to achieve this goal.”
