Madison, NC, September 18, 2008 - Remington Arms Company, Inc. announced today that it has teamed with Fernando Coelho, long involved in the firearms, ammunition, and tactical clothing communities, to enter the rapidly growing market for tactical apparel.

The new company – EOTAC, will be tapping into decades of experience in the military, law enforcement, and private security sector by both Mr. Coelho and Remington's family of companies, to design and produce, the finest line of tactical and discreet clothing.

"EOTAC's approach to apparel design is to offer a balance between innovation and price point.
