The Veterans Manufacturing Company started on April 1, 2016 in Katy, Texas. At the onset they considered the Fort Bend County SBDC office in Katy, Texas and asked for business assistance and guidance as to funding providers. They developed, patented, manufacture, and sell personal body armor protection to police departments, security firms and the general public.
The SBDC office was able to write a newspaper article for Impact magazine describing the company, its owners, two veterans (U.S. Army and U.S. Marines), and its products. The SBA obtained the article and sent it to its headquarters in Washington D.C. From there, the company’s growth sky rocketed by winning Rice University’s Venture Capital Biz Battle contest and also being selected by the SBA as 1 of 10 small businesses to meet in Washington D.C. with President Trump during Small Business Week.
Today, the company has received equity investment funds and has purchased a 36,000 square foot building in Katy, Texas to manufacture their products and will be hiring a workforce of 21 employees…. all thanks in part to the Fort Bend County SBDC and its services.
