How did Ronald Fowlkes become Co-Owner of FirstSpear?

Ronald Fowlkes is an expert in military equipment. He isn’t an expert because he designs equipment, or because he sells it. He is an expert because, as a member of the military and an officer of a SWAT Team in St. Louis, he has been using military equipment his entire life.

 

During his time in the United States Marine Corps, Fowlkes noticed that his favorite equipment was all made by the same company. When he left the military, he went back to his hometown to work for the St. Louis Police Department. As a member of their SWAT Team, he noticed that they used the same equipment as the military.

 

When Fowlkes investigated the peculiarity he discovered that the company was operated locally – out of the very town he called home.

 

Because he knew that they were making very special products, after his police career came to a close, he joined up with Eagle Industries Unlimited and eventually became the co-owner of one of their sub-company’s First Spear. Ronald Fowlkes knows what it takes to make a great piece of military equipment, that’s why he is one of the best authorities in the world when it comes to selling it. If First Spear kept him safe for his length military and police career, it’ll keep the generations of future military personnel safe as well.

 

Fowlkes is happy to work with a company that he admires so greatly. “We make the Ferrari of the tactical world,” Fowlkes said in certainty.

 

What is First Spear?

 

First Spear is a military and police gear producer located out of St. Louis, Missouri. The company was created in 2010 by a team of industry professionals who had been making similar equipment for years. The company is known for its methodology that results in the same high quality protection other manufacturers offer but at a much lower weight.

 

People who are in need of protection equipment know that they don’t only need protection but they also require their mobility. First Spear has been successful in working to satisfy the needs of their customers.

 

The company’s product line ranges from bullet proof vests for both humans and canines, holsters, ankle belts, and helmets. First Spear also has an excellent line of casual apparel for the off duty police officer to purchase.
