Eden Economic Development Corporation Awards 2nd IRP Loan
Leggett Tactical Solutions Facility in Eden, TX

The Eden Economic Development Corporation awarded its second IRP Loan to Leggett Tactical Solutions, LLC (LTS) in cooperation with the USDA Intermediary Relending Program.  "The program is an important tool for rural communities in our efforts to increase economic activity and create new jobs." said Economic Development Coordinator Kathy Keane.  The City of Eden City Council also offered their support by granting temporary office and warehouse space in its former law enforcement facility.  LTS plans to construct or purchase a larger facility as the company grows.  Capitalizing on a federally recognized HUBZone status and key transportation corridors, Leggett Tactical Solutions, LLC has chosen Eden, TX as headquarters for its textile manufacturing facility.  Co-owned by a service disabled veteran, LTS will provide high-quality personal protection accessories for all branches of the military and other security related agencies using innovative textile fabrication and detailed custom design work.  LTS' production items will include bulletproof vests, tactical accessories (vests, pouches, uniforms, weapon holsters, etc.), customized ballistic blanketing for vehicles and other textile items as determined by customer demand. The company will begin operations with the company's four principals and will add up to 15 full-time employees as additional contracts are secured.   "We view Eden as a place of growth with huge potential and will work to employ already existing local residents as well as draw new residents to Eden for employment", said President and CEO Blake Leggett.  LTS feels strongly about accountability as an employer and determined to become a stable source of employment for the city of Eden.
