TUCSON, ARIZONA – Copper Street Armor Factory, LLC of Tucson (Todd Meeks, manager) doing business as Spartan Armor Systems, purchased a 12,800-square-foot industrial building and excess land at 1830 & 1840 W Copper Street in Tucson for $702,000 ($55 PSF). The building was built in 1993 and includes a 3,000-square-feet, two-story office sitting on 1.45 acres with approximately .7 acres of excess land in the Grant Road Industrial Park.

Meeks purchased the growing business of Spartan Armor Systems several years ago, that manufactures a variety of ceramic plates for ballistic protection, or bulletproof vests. The company had outgrown its leased space where it employed about 20 people when it decided it was time to buy.

Finding for the purchase was provided through an SBA Loan program.

The bulletproof vests are popular for police officers, security personnel, repo-men, investigators, pawn brokers, gas station attendants, avid shooters, hunters, preppers, and anyone else who wants to protect themselves from danger.

With the Spartan body armor, the operator has increased mobility, increased comfort and a decrease in weight, while minimally sacrificing armor coverage from other products. The ultra-thin plates in Spartan armor, are cut from genuine lab-certified Omega Armor that offers advanced Level III protection.
