Crosstac was formed in 2001 by Bret Heidkamp, out of seeing opportunity to design products based on shooting needs and competition experience from travelling around the country for matches. We used to laugh that we “designed by frustration” because so many products were poorly designed, or made by people who clearly were not shooters.
Competing yielded ideas for products, but the Crosstac line is a collaboration of ideas and efforts from others as well. Competing is important to keep the creative juices flowing!
We are proud to now have over 60 products and if you include the color choices, closer to 350 different parts. It is a challenge to keep everything in stock and flowing! Definitely keeps us hopping.
We release new designs every year, after thorough testing. We now have two factories - our main office in Colorado that houses our machine shop and all the distribution, and a second factory in Miami that is our sewing facility. This way we are able to use the best talent to give you the best product quality available. It is also important for us to keep everything made in the USA. It’s how we can control the quality - down to the type of thread used.
We are proudly Made in USA, and have always been from the very start of Crosstac 18 years ago to today. Our dealers are proud to have products made right here and not imported, and they are the first to tell us so. It is important to us everything we make holds up to being used and works as designed. While it is much more expensive for Crosstac, we believe our customers can see and tell the difference in our products. We hope you are a Crosstac customer!
