Madison, NC, September 18, 2008 - Remington Arms Company, Inc. announced today that it has teamed with Fernando Coelho, long involved in the firearms, ammunition, and tactical clothing communities, to enter the rapidly growing market for tactical apparel.

The new company – EOTAC, will be tapping into decades of experience in the military, law enforcement, and private security sector by both Mr. Coelho and Remington's family of companies, to design and produce, the finest line of tactical and discreet clothing.

"EOTAC's approach to apparel design is to offer a balance between innovation and price point. By merging outdoor industry techniques with tactical user based input and world class materials, EOTAC will offer both traditional tactical clothing and the next generation in tactical clothing" said Fernando Coelho, President of EOTAC.

"On a daily basis, Remington, and our sister companies- Bushmaster and DPMS, interact with operators all over the world when seeking to address their needs with our firearms and ammunition solutions. This constant interaction with the global tactical community, puts us in a position to provide a constant stream of feedback and ideas to EOTAC's design team, leverage our industry expertise and relationships, and support EOTAC in developing and supplying, the finest tactical and discreet clothing available" - said E. Scott Blackwell, President of Global Sales and Marketing for Remington and Vice President of EOTAC.
