Dec '07
TA Associates announced it has completed a $200 million investment in 5.11 Tactical, a rapidly growing manufacturer and distributor of apparel and accessories focused primarily in the law enforcement market. TA will hold a majority stake in 5.11 Tactical and the senior management team will remain in place.

Headquartered in Modesto, California, and founded in 2003, 5.11 Tactical is the only company providing a full line of functional products to law enforcement and public safety personnel. Built on a foundation of durability, quality and value, the company's superior products enhance the safety, accuracy, speed and performance of law enforcement, military and firefighting professionals.

5.11 Tactical's apparel includes pants, shirts, shorts, vests, belts and uniforms, as well as outerwear, underwear, footwear and accessories. The company was ranked no. 211 on the 2007 Inc. 500, Inc. magazine's annual ranking, by revenue growth, of privately-held, independent, U.S.-based companies.

“We are delighted to make this investment in 5.11 Tactical, which has become a leader in the tactical/law enforcement market through creative sourcing and product development, and an innovative retail strategy,” said Jeffrey T. Chambers, a Managing Director at TA Associates who will join the company's Board of Directors. “Led by an exceptional management team, the company has a record of rapid growth across product categories and we see significant opportunity for continued expansion.”
