Founded by former US Navy EOD Tech Steve Cassidy in 2012, Training Center Pros, Inc. and EOD-Gear.com are headquartered out of Franklin, Tennessee with locations that are open to the public in Franklin, Tennessee and Huntsville, Alabama.
Being completely dissatisfied with EOD Kits on the market, Steve designed and programmed the Custom EOD Tool Kit which allows the Tech to select the exact tools needed in the kit with the price that adjust in real-time. This process is now used for all of our "Build Your Own" kits. After 5 years, our competitors still are not able to offer the granular level of kit building available at EOD Gear.
Our philosophy is that we never want anyone to buy any gear they don't want or need. Now we do want all of your money but only if it gives you exactly what you're looking for.
The two EOD Gear facilities were put into place so that Techs as well as other professionals had a place to come in and actually try out the gear and offer another way to build out custom kits in person. Even though you can come in and purchase gear, we're not really set up as a store. We're more of a permanent trade show that gives you the ability to pick the gear up, try it on and put the gear through some testing.
We have a Rappelling/Fast Rope Tower in Nashville, an NVG room in Huntsville, a Quickie Saw station in each location and much more.
The Franklin facility is our primary distribution center as well as where we manufacture our MOLLE Lid Organizers, custom foam, Positive Blocks, Landmine Probes, Threat Markers, Inert explosives and HME's, etc. We also put together EOD kits one tool at a time. Our IED fabrication center is top notch and completely stocked up with all the parts to make the very basic to the most sophisticated devices you can imagine.
If you're in either Franklin or Huntsville for work or vacation, please stop in.
