TriStar: Bearing manufacturer for the military From war zones in Fallujah to border patrols in the US, military operatives depend on a cache of different devices to secure our nation’s safety.  At TriStar, we were honored to recently collaborate with a group of military and security agencies to develop an all-new self-defense baton system.   The baton is engineered with three unique stop agents to immediately disable terrorists in their tracks; an electric shock component capable of releasing 600,000 volts; a high-intensity lighting component; plus a high-decibel horn attachment.  This multi-purpose device required not only the strongest materials to tolerate an extreme combat environment, but also needed to be lightweight enough for easy transport by security forces.

Ultracomp met all of the requirements ― at a cost-effective price.
