5IVE STAR GEAR
5IVE STAR GEAR from ATLANCO
ATLANCO was founded in 1950 in Atlanta, GA and soon became a leading distributor in the Southeast region of the United States for military products. From the beginning, diversification and customer service have been core elements of the company’s policy.
In the mid-1980’s, the Company recognized a growth opportunity and developed a new military apparel and accessories product line under the brand name “Atlanco”. These “Made in the U.S.A.” products earned national and international recognition, leading to new markets and continued growth.
As the market evolved, ATLANCO opened its first manufacturing facility in Honduras in 1996 with the intention to manufacture the highest-quality uniforms at competitive pricing. The brand name TRU-SPEC® was created reflecting the fact that these uniforms are manufactured to the U.S. Government’s “true specifications” using USA mil-spec fabrics. The TRU-SPEC® brand has developed into an industry leader and has expanded from core military apparel to public safety and law enforcement, as well as outdoor apparel.
In the past decade, demand for the TRU-SPEC® brand has continued to grow, and in response to that demand a new 110,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility opened in Honduras in March 2004. This state-of-the-art facility allows the manufacturing process to be housed under one roof, with ample room for expansion. Currently this factory supports 1,000 employees specialized in the manufacturing of high-quality uniforms.
