New sales channel allows for government purchases of Pro V2 enhanced non-lethal devices
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Nov. 25, 2014 – Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), announced today that its Pro V2 device has been added to the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) federal supplier list as an authorized vendor of security equipment for security and emergency response.
The listing on GSA Schedule 84 comes through a sole source partner, ADS Tactical of Virginia Beach. ADS provides industry-leading equipment and services, streamlined procurement, and value added services solutions to all Department of Defense (DOD), Federal, State, and Local Agencies in support of homeland defense and homeland security operations. ADS is also coded under the socio-economic indicators for small business, women-owned, SBA Certified Small Disadvantaged Business and an SBA Certified 8(a) Firm.
The listing provides essential access to a purchasing channel that will help speed the delivery of Pro V2 products to security providers at agencies where a non-lethal, intermediate security response is preferred, such as hospital settings and community policing during emergency management.
“Agencies providing critical services are now able to implement a non-lethal response to emergencies in places where the public, Veterans and people in vulnerable conditions may be present. The Pro V2 is the only intermediate layered defense device in the market today that can deliver safe de-escalation of events with incident recording and two-way Bluetooth® communication,” said Guardian 8 CEO Steve Cochennet.
All government agencies and other organizations using the GSA schedule for purchases may now purchase Pro V2 and Pro V2 accessories through Schedule 84, Total Solutions for Law Enforcement, Security, Facilities Management, Fire, Rescue, Clothing, Marine Craft and Emergency/Disaster Response.
