Iron Grip Supports Operation Enduring Freedom
April 23, 2002, Costa Mesa, CA
Since the events of September 11, 2001, Iron Grip Barbell Company has supported
Operation Enduring Freedom by supplying over 130 U.S. military bases and naval
ships with American-made Iron Grip free weight equipment.
At the request of the US Government, military facilities at Guantanamo Bay,
Kabul and Diego Garcia have been outfitted with Iron Grip free weights.
In addition, ships such as the USS Tarawa, the USS Camden and the USS Shiloh
have chosen Iron Grip's rust-resistant, 12-sided Urethane plates and dumbbells,
designed to minimize rolling.
In an effort to ensure that the U.S. military's deadlines are met, Iron Grip,
in conjunction with Life Fitness, has increased production to record levels.
Iron Grip has also expedited shipping at the request of the military, in one
case airlifting over 2 tons of equipment to Guantanamo Bay for the troops
stationed there. Strength training is an important element in keeping soldiers
ready for duty, and Iron Grip proudly supplies equipment that meets the U.S.
military's standards for safety, reliability and durability.
As the largest provider of commercial free weight equipment worldwide, Iron Grip
maintains its commitment to developing groundbreaking designs, building reliable
equipment, and providing excellent customer care. With over 45 patents issued
or pending in the US and internationally, Iron Grip will continue to develop
innovative new products to strengthen its intellectual property base, and to
meet the evolving needs of the industry.
