Tuesday, November 21, 2017

​TDI LLC purchased Tactical Distributors LLC in 2013, a firm that specializes in tactical gear and high-end tactical equipment for such vendors as London Bridge Trading, Arc'teryx, and Kuhl. Through years of dedication and development, the company has grown significantly and has expanded into the retail market.

The company purchased a 2.59-acre site at 641 Phoenix Drive in Virginia Beach. The site includes an 11,495-square-foot facility for the company's corporate headquarters in addition to manufacturing, printing and distribution.

The expansion was precipitated by other recent acquisitions of screen printing and embroidering companies including MSP Design Group (April 2015), Harbour Graphics (April 2017) and Bay Screen and Graphics (June 2017). Additionally TDI Printing Group and TDI LLC merged in June 2017 to create one entity, TDI LLC, which is the umbrella company for all of the merged companies. It will maintain an existing manufacturing and distribution facility on Crusader Circle in Virginia Beach. 

"We are very pleased to be able to accommodate TDI LLC's rapid growth and welcome its corporate headquarters to Virginia Beach," said Virginia Beach Economic Development Director Warren D. Harris. "The new facility on Phoenix Drive is large enough to handle all business operations and comfortably house the new and merged employees."

The Virginia Beach Development Authority approved an Economic Development Investment Program grant in the amount of $75,000 based on the capital investment.

"The City of Virginia Beach has been very accommodating on our corporate headquarters relocation," said TDI LLC owner Dan Clarkson. "We appreciate the guidance and financial assistance, and we are very excited to have the space for our employees and room to grow at the new location."
