  • Stryke Industries Announces Newest Client, Enzyme Solutions, Inc.

    Stryke Industries, a highly specialized business development firm, is excited to announce its newest client, Enzyme Solutions, Inc. (ESI), a pioneer in “green” cleaning technologies. On behalf of our client, Stryke manages a coherent strategy of business development actions from research & development, capture planning, and end-customer engagement.

    ESI is a Garrett, Indiana based manufacturer of enzymes and enzyme products, many of which are EPA ‘Design for the Environment and Safer Choice’ program compliant. Enzymes are all natural, environmentally friendly, and in certain cases, actually help the task of cleaning the waste and toxic by–products of manufacturing and everyday life.  For years, enzymes have been used in the medical, dental, textile, cleaning and food industries and can even be tailored for use in pest control. Enzyme Solutions has developed safe, powerful cleaning products for almost every segment of the government at an efficient cost.

    ESI’s goal is to have the best performing products in the Federal Marketplace to include the Veteran’s Administration, DOD and others. ESI CEO Tim Beck stated “By using enzymes instead of chemicals, we can maintain the living standards we have today while preserving our environment for our children.”  He went on to say “Teaming with Stryke provides us great opportunities to evolve government applications for our safe and environmentally responsible products.”

    “In the ultra-competitive cleaning solution marketplace, Enzyme Solutions’ future is seemingly boundless.” stated Aaron Pence, Account Executive for the Stryke Enzyme Solutions Team. “The fact that they quickly gained compliance with the new EPA Safer Choice program speaks volumes for their commitment to green cleaning solutions and environmental protection for our future”.

    Van Flamion, President of Stryke Industries stated “Enzyme Solutions, Inc. is committed to providing effective solutions that are environmentally friendly!  We applaud this great Hoosier Company and will work closely with their team as we answer the President’s Executive Order to expand these products across the government.” Van further stated, “There are literally hundreds of applications for these high quality enzyme solutions.”

  • Stryke Industries Announces Newest Client, Disc-O-Bed™

    Stryke Industries, a highly specialized business development firm, is excited to announce its newest client, Disc-O-Bed, the designers and producers of a patented, rapid-deployable, bunk-style,  ruggedized sleep solution for our warfighters utilized across the globe.  On behalf of our Client, Stryke manages a coherent strategy of business development actions from research & development, capture planning, and customer engagement.. 

     Disc-O-Bed is the leader in providing sleep solutions in extreme conditions, environments our warfighters find themselves all too often.  Disc-O-Bed’s patented ready-to-go sleep system delivers the best night’s sleep possible for the extremes of real life. Designed for the demands of disaster relief, troop deployment, outdoor enthusiasts and in-home users alike, the Disc-Bed ensures you rest comfortably wherever space is at a premium. Disc-O-Bed President Douglas Owen stated “Disc-O-Bed is proven to withstand the challenges of combat environments.  We receive positive validations daily from those that have used this technology while deployed.”  A recent soldier stated “I’ve had to lay my head down is some interesting places, but I remember your portable bunk bed cot as one of my most comfortable.”  Disc-O-Beds have also excelled in humanitarian relief by providing medical Ebola Beds and accessory support during the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

     “A sleep solution for the toughest of conditions, the Arm-O-Bunk, Disc-O-Bed’s combat bunk was developed specifically to U.S.  Department of Defense specifications, addressing the need for rapid deployment, minimal footprint, and comfortable strength for U.S. troops” stated Aaron Pence, Account Executive for the Stryke Disc-O-Bed Team. “Their solution is modular, portable, compact and ultra-strong” stated Aaron.

     Disc-O-Bed’s patented disc system allows for quick, no tool assembly, adjusts to uneven ground and is wider than any standard cot.  Bunkable to maximize floor space, it converts to a sitting bench or two single cots with no mattress required.   Disc-O-Beds are durable, water and stain resistant and fully collapse neatly into a canvas carry bag for easy transportation.  They can come with accessories such as a footlocker, IV stand, mosquito net, cabinet and soon-to-be Disco Tent.

     Van Flamion, President of Stryke Industries stated “From the moment we met the Team at Disc-O-Bed, we knew this system was a game changer for warfighter sleep quality”.  A study validated by a recent report by the Defense Center of Excellence for Psychological Health said sleep problems were prevalent in the military.  Van further stated, “Combat doesn’t have to mean terrible sleep conditions when you have the technology of a Disc-O-Bed in your tent”.
