Lamperd Less Lethal Announces New Assembly Facility in Pittsburgh for Pepper Blast to Counter Active Shooter and Aggressive Animal Situations
Strong Response and Initial Orders to Product Introduction for School Safety and Humane Protection Against Aggressive Animals
SARNIA, Ontario, March 13, 2018 (NewMediaWire) — Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. (OTC PINK: LLLI), an innovation leader and manufacturer of advanced security solutions for law enforcement, military and other users worldwide, is now making efforts to help open a new Pittsburgh assembly facility in response to strong interest in the U.S. and the first purchase orders for its new Pepper Blast product. Pepper Blast is an easy to use, OC pepper compound dispenser which can immediately incapacitate an active shooter with severe respiratory distress and impairment of vision for up to 10 minutes without the risks of using deadly force. For this reason, it offers a solution to the major issue of school shooting events as have tragically been in the news. Pepper Blast also has an ideal application as a humane protection measure in the great many situations involving aggressive dogs or other animals that police, animal control and other professionals face on a regular basis. Unlike common pepper spray devices, Pepper Blast does not need to be carefully aimed but only thrown in the vicinity of the threat where it instantly disburses a powerful but harmless cloud of pepper irritant over a 20 foot radius without releasing any harmful fragments.
The new assembly facility for Pepper Blast, to be located in Pittsburgh, is being planned to open in the first half of 2018 so that Lamperd will be able to easily supply large numbers of these units to customers throughout the United States. The facility will be operated under the authority E.J.C. Security Services, Inc. which specializes in "Use of Force Management and Training" and has been working together with Lamperd Less Lethal for over 20 years providing highly accredited training functions on the company’s products worldwide. E.J.C management may be contacted directly by phone at (412) 855-7964 or email to [email protected]
Barry Lamperd, CEO of Lamperd Less Lethal, stated; "The response we have been receiving to our Pepper Blast product has indicated that this will be a very important area of focus in 2018 and beyond. The vital issue of protecting students in schools from the threat of active shooters is something we want to do everything in our power to help resolve. Lamperd's Pepper Blast product may be the best solution to this issue as it can quickly and effectively counter a shooting situation without having to resort to arming teachers with guns or putting limited numbers of very expensive armed guards into our schools. We believe every teacher and school official should have simple training and ready access to Pepper Blast so that any one of them will be in a position to stop or greatly diminish the threat of an active shooter wherever the need arises and be able to save lives. Additionally, we have been receiving strong interest in Pepper Blast from professionals who must face the threat of aggressive dogs or other animals on a regular basis. Pepper Blast is also an ideal measure to deal with this widespread issue as it will frighten off or remove the aggression from the animal without having to resort to the use of deadly force. Most police, animal control and other field professionals do not want to kill dogs or other animals unnecessarily and we have been receiving feedback that they would welcome Pepper Blast as a humane protection measure to have available. For both the school security and aggressive animal roles, we foresee a very large demand for the Lamperd Pepper Blast product in Canada, the U.S. and many other countries around the world."
