Entrepreneurship is about creating financial freedom, and we want to help our fellow veterans make it happen! That’s why we created the StreetShares Commander’s Call Veteran Business Award.
This month’s winner is Survival and Tactical Systems (STS). STS is a Veteran-owned business based in Holly Ridge, N.C. that provides high quality, American made firearm products to the Military, Law Enforcement and civilians.
Survival and Tactical Systems’ Story
STS Owner and CEO Nick Koumalatsos is a Marine Special Operations Veteran.
“The reason for starting STS was essentially out of nostalgia,” Nick said. “I missed my team and the way we use to live. I wanted to create a company that brought those same ethos and feelings together, so I did. I wanted to give our guys a place that we could do the things we love doing while providing for our families. We have the ability to take what we have learned over what feels like a lifetime and impart on our clients to ensure they are stronger, safer, and smarter. We are very fortunate to have the ability to do something we truly love.”
Survival and Tactical Systems is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business whose mission is to prepare their customers with knowledge, training and equipment to protect themselves and their loved ones. STS sells gun accessories and equipment, and offers corporate leadership courses, pistol marksmanship courses and other firearm training courses.
Congratulations, Survival and Tactical Systems!
