From Concepts to Complete Solutions
What we offer is beyond just simple products – we provide trusted and reliable complete solutions that are among the most innovative in the industry.
The concepts for our products come from the real life needs of our users. From protecting kids, boaters or fishermen that unintentionally fall overboard to providing military teams with the flotation, hypothermia and acceleration protection they need as they head straight into harm’s way, our products are designed to give them all the best chance of survival should they need it. In fact, our products have often been featured on television’s Tactical to Practical show - a strong statement about how the benefits from one solution often spill over to become solutions for another market.
Many of our products are researched, designed, tested and manufactured right where they are conceived. We are proud to be one of the unique companies in the industry where we control the entire product cycle, from initial research and product prototype design, to product testing and final production and quality assurance. Even after our products leave our manufacturing floor, we have a national network of Mustang Survival dealers and Mustang Certified Service Facilities where products can be inspected, maintained and repaired.
We are proud to uphold the highest level of quality control in our North American facilities. Our headquarters and manufacturing facility in Canada are ISO 9001:2008 certified. Click here to view our ISO 9001: 2008 certification.
